From June 10 to September 12, Galerie des Galeries presents Idées Multiples, an exhibition designed by six personalities from the world of art, built around eight limited editions.
Once again, Galerie des Galeries has come up with an innovative exhibition concept, with contributors from various artistic fields jointly developing a project exploring the worlds of art, fashion and design. Visitors will find themselves immersed in a scenography whose starting point is the art work itself. Around each multiple, contributors construct a composition of fashion items and assorted objects, reminiscent of the Surrealists’ “exquisite corpses”. Everything is up for sale.
For this collegial project, art books and multiples editors Mélanie Scarciglia and Christophe Boutin have selected eight multiples. Based on these works, stylist Victoire Simonney interpreted the world of each artist through a choice of outfits and accessories from thirty different brands. Lifestyle specialist and objects spotter Jean-Baptiste Charpenay-Limon provided a range of eclectic objects and created an intimate space.
These combinations are laid out by architect Pauline Marchetti in a way that maintains the specificity of an art gallery but infuses it with the kind of warm atmosphere one expects in a shop. Each item is uniquely connected to the multiple, which radiates its light on surrounding objects.
Invited by the artspace director Elsa Janssen, the contributors respond to the work of eight different French and international artists: John Armleder, Pierre Bismuth, Elvire Bonduelle, Daniel Gordon, Jonathan Monk, Rafaël Rozendaal, Josh Smith and Pier Stockholm.
