From 12th September 2015 and until 3rd January 2016, MAGASIN, Centre National d’Art contemporain in Grenoble, devotes an individual exhibition to the architect, artist and founder of Bureau des Mésarchitectures. Didier Faustino. A multifaceted blend of work combining architecture, performance, installation, video, design and scenography… This solo show called ‘Des Corps & Des Astres’ (Bodies and Stars), offers an individual as well as collective field. With a critical eye Faustino forms an exhibition structure like an incessant proliferation of shapes spanning the 1700 m2 art centre in Grenoble. These hybrid shapes or narrations question the organisation of social systems that govern exchanges between individuals and hence our ability to perceive the political system. In this profusion of signs, Faustino associates home environments and catastrophic landscapes the transgressive dimension of which affects meanings. Lire la suite…

Like independent fireflies, pulsating the light in unison.

Evariste Richer is taking over Untilthen to 21st June with a selection of works in dialogue, between stratum and contrasts, ‘from the hidden to the disclosed,’ through the structure and transformation of matter. The French artist demands an audience with ‘a flexible viewpoint’ for this surprising rally of variations. Going from one extreme to another, from the microscopic crystallisations of a mica sheet to the most remote stars, the artist engages in a constellation of works, between ultra-realism and natural abstraction.

To provide even more efficient support to design, contemporary art and lifestyle firms in terms of their international development, Duende PR is opening an office in Milan, the nerve centre of contemporary furniture and design and architectural press.

Didier Faustino

Artefact of fantasy, Terra Incognita by Didier Faustino for the 140 years of  Topazio establishes a frame of merging an ornemental piece and a fragment of vanity. The baroque trophy and its reflection deforms the image of the spectator. This effect guides our judgement on the field of anxiety, embarrassment, perplexity and paradoxically contemplation. Refering to the “Queer readings”, literature of the 70s, and the writings of Le Marquis de Sade, this work highlights a praise of the transgressive aspect of our pleasures. Lire la suite…
