Wallpaper: ‘Striptease’: Ionna Vautrin’s saucy sketches go on display in Paris
June 03 2016
Wallpaper* put a focus on the new exhibition by Ionna Vautrin at Espace Modem titled ‘Striptease’, a series of 100 sketches about the theme of eroticism and humour.
“… It doesn’t take long to realise the risqué nature of her debut art show; all of the figures in the series are in some pursuit of, well, let’s just say ‘pleasure’.” She has addressed a spectrum of fetishes: props, acrobatics, food and furry costumes. Most notably, she’s all-inclusive, featuring same-sex couples, small groups, large groups and even singletons.
Vautrin revealed to Wallpaper* that the idea emerged during a long distance relationship when she started sketching instead of sending photos.
