[2001] Love_me_tender-01

The architect Didier Fiúza Faustino has been shaking up reality in order to reveal intimacy since 2000. Examples include a passenger compartment for frail bodies undergoing a perilous migratory transit, a tiny basketball court perched mid-air at the end of a sculptural staircase and a three floor building for a single person located on a tiny square metre in the heart of the most expensive cities in the world. Faustino presents solitude among the multitude highlighting the need for community. He constructs for and around the body to present his real subject: society that must be interacted with at all costs. Lire la suite…

 

[2007] Temps_sauvages_et_incertains-01Galerie Michel Rein is proud to present the third solo show of Didier Fiúza Faustino from october 20th to december 17h.  Didier Fiúza Faustino has been working for many years on the cusp of art and architecture, between space and sculpture. We know that, with this artist, the said barrier is capable of great contortions  which further aggravate the discomfort of the on straddling in this way. The theme of the exhibition MY CRAFTS is very precisely that of uncertain seating and denied commodities. Ten works made over the last sixteen years, which we have difficulty calling “chairs” as they mishandle not only our bodies but also and foremost the categories established by design theorists and other decorative art specialists. Ten works to be further considered as milestones in Faustino’s work, formations which appeared during his spatial work and were then integrated into this or that installation or associated with this or that building site.

On the occasion of the parisian launch of the collection of Haute Bijouterie designed by Pierre Hardy for Hermès, Didier Fiuza Faustino is invited to conceive the staging of these uniques pieces and to create the « Continuum ». until octobre 8th at Hermès 24 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré Paris (8ème). Didier Faustino and his Cosmogony installation. The cosmogony is the science of the creation of celestial objects and in the same time the part of the mythologies that tell the birth of the world and men. For his collaboration with Hermès and Pierre Hardy, Didier Fiuza Faustino chose to seize the theme of the new collection of « Haute Bijouterie » that was focused on the expression of time, to design the interior of the Boutique Hermès, with a futuristic atmosphere. With almost twelve boxes that contain the jewels laid out in a perfect circle, Faustino introduces a basic representation of the notion of time.

ORAITO-ADint©VERONESE 18

For the 7th edition of AD Intérieurs, Ora Ito and Daniel Buren have joined forces to dazzle the Monnaie de Paris until 18th September. The two partners have arranged interplaying mirrors and taut lines to maximise their 20m2 exhibition area creating a monumental effect with minimal resources. This year the editors of AD magazine asked interior designers to establish a decor around collections of objects they care about. “Rather than a traditional cabinet of curiosities, they’re asked to arrange bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens or studies, with the idea of living surrounded by personal treasures.” Lire la suite…

David Brognon & Stéphanie Rollin present Subbar, Sabra at Galerie Albert Baronian during group show “Le Language des Fleurs et des Choses Muettes (CH. Baudelaire)” until 16th july. Imported from Mexico in the 16th century, the prickly pear cactus, or Barbary fig, was called subbar by the Arabs of Palestine. Planted in rows, it served to mark the boundaries of neighbouring parcels of land. In those days, the impassable barriers of spines served as a cadastre, or property map. The useful plant later became a metaphor for Jews putting down roots on the same land. Its Hebrew name, sabra, came to stand for all Jews born in the region before 1948 and their Israeli descendants. But as the Arab villages were razed, the roots of the cacti planted around the gardens survived, and over the years the subbar regrew to become the ghostly imprint of the Arab presence in the territory. The biblical hills saw cactus fences re emerge to surround empty spaces. Lire la suite…

 

"Triangles percés" Marseille 2016

Following in the footsteps of Xavier Veilhan, Daniel Buren and Dan Graham, Felice Varini goes face-to-face with Le Corbusier’s architecture at MAMO, the art centre created by Ora Ito on the roof terrace of Cité Radieuse in Marseille (France) from 2nd July to 2nd October. The French-Swiss artist living in Paris finds himself in a unique situation, “This is the first time that I have exhibited on, in and with architecture designed by Le Corbusier. This place is a landmark, a huge influence. It is a true microcosm, designed as a small city with its range of complex volumes, a small city with a view over the large city of Marseille. It is extremely exciting!Lire la suite…

Hangover2
In their recent video works, David Brognon and Stéphanie Rollin explore the margins of territories and boundaries – geographical, political, moral and psychological – that humans, at times brutally, have appropriated and defend or (un)consciously ignore. Curious and intrepid, the two artists go wherever their research takes them, working in the field and in direct – occasionally physical – confrontation with their subjects. Risk-taking is integral to their approach, and the terrains on which they venture can prove extremely fruitful. Lire la suite…
