FORMES SUBTILES (MODERN REMIX) AT GALERIE ICONOCLASTES

From November 14th to December 11th, the exhibition « Formes Subtiles (Modern Remix) » will take place at the Galerie Iconoclastes in Paris. Stemming from a selection of photographs taken by Gaston Karquel in 1949 and documenting the « Formes Utiles » exhibition, the curators Geraldine Postel and David Magnin invite 15 contemporary artists to reinterpret or remix these iconic objects made by the French Modernists. The photographs from each era will be presented side-by-side, creating a new conversation between past and present visions.

Gaston Karquel was a french artist, pioneer in artistic and documentary photography, who followed the Modernists movement during many years. The  1949 « Formes Utiles » exhibition highlighted, among others, the works of legendary graphic designer and architect Pierre Faucheux, as well as architects Charlotte Perriand and Jean Prouvé. In « Formes Subtiles », a delicate play on words, their objects and furniture, beautifully photographed by Gaston Karquel, are seen through the prism of artists like Laurent Saksik, Thomas Lelu, Bianca Argimon, Antoine Marquis or Simon de La Porte.
