Upcoming: D*Face – “FORNEVER” @ Galerie Itinerrance

Earlier tonight, Galerie Itinerrance in Paris opened up a new show from D*Face (interviewed) entitled FORNEVER. For his first solo in France, the British artist presented a diverse mix of paintings on canvas, sculptures, installations, HPMs, serigraphs, and some fresh assemblages (seen here). The new imagery deals with how nothing is forever, with the old replaced with the new and the tensions that come with it. Of course, D also took time to paint a large mural for his fans in the City of Love (more on that later). […]

Installation: Leandro Erlich – “Sous le Ciel” @ Le Bon Marché

Recently in France, Leandro Erlich reimagined Le Bon Marché’s signature escalators, utilizing his penchant for illusory installations. Following in the footsteps of Ai Weiwei, Edoardo Tresoldi, and Chiharu Shiota, who have all transformed the interiors of the famed Parisian department store, the Argentinian artist added a twist to the escalator’s exterior as well as set up lights inside that changed depending on the hour and season. Rounding out the site-specific work entitled Sous le Ciel (after an Edith Piaf song) are mirrors that create an infinite optical illusion as […]
