On the occasion of the end of the year celebrations, Galerie des Galeries opens a new series of exhibitions dedicated to the genre of tale. Artists, designers, architects, creators and storytellers will succeed each other to create new stories to awaken everyone's imagination. For this first occurrence, the designers Gaëlle Gabillet and Stéphane Villard from GGSV studio present Demain, le vaisseau chimère (Tomorrow, the chimera ship): the story of a world transforming under the influence of weird entities.
Natural elements -things and phenomena- have organized to alter the world's aspect. They gave birth to a secret place, a metaphorical ship on which Man could be boarding tomorrow. Yet the path to go and visit this strange allegory has to be found. Only one door leads to it. For this project, GGSV studio has invited author Lætitia Paviani to write an eponymous tale.
GGSV studio was created in 2001 by Paris-based designers Gaëlle Gabillet and Stéphane Villard, who both graduated from ENSCI / Les Ateliers (national school of industrial creation). Ranging from curatorial projects and scenography, to product design and interior design, their practice is plural, and regularly puts the space they work within in place of the site for the experimentation of design. Since September 2018, they are residents of Villa Medicis – the French Academy in Roma, to lead their research on illusion and ecology through the medium of painting.
