THE BRIGHT SIDE OF CAPITALISM

After a break of 15 years dedicated to his video art TV channel souvenirs from earth*, Marcus Kreiss has returned to drawing and painting.

During his exhibition at the opening of the Yvon Lambert collection, he presented his great series of apartment towers alongside the artist Donald Judd. It was a matter of questioning the viewer on consumerism and industrial aesthetics, while parodying minimal art.

Sometimes it's good to come back to the source, to his first passions.

These juvenile desires are embodied by an army of fierce amazons, rendered with the raw and enjoyable style of a big kid.

Marcus Kreiss enlisted these uninhibited pornstars from the lost paradise of the '70s.
Their duty is simple: attack our smooth, sterile world as its official contemporary art with panache.

The first part of the exhibition, entitled ‘summer never ends’ evokes the crude and primary happiness of a little boy fascinated by sci-fi and fighter planes curves.

Paris Refashioned, 1957-1968 highlights one of the most groundbreaking time periods in fashion history. While many books and exhibitions about this era position London as the center of innovative, youth-oriented design, this limited perspective overlooks the significant role that Paris continued to play in the fashion industry. Paris Refashioned, 1957-1968 examines the combined influence of French haute couture, ready-to-wear, and popular culture during this era, with particular emphasis on how fashion was perceived and promoted by the American fashion press. All objects on view were selected from The Museum at FIT’s permanent collection of more than 50,000 objects.

Mêlant sculpture, performance et vidéo, Dangerous on-the-way s’attache plus précisément à l’ecstasis que ce rituel peut permettre d’atteindre, cet état physique et mental décrit par la philosophie grecque comme le fait de « se trouver hors de soi ».

Lors de ses performances en solitaire, Abraham Poincheval (né en 1972, vit à Marseille) repousse
ses limites physiques et mentales. La vie en autarcie, l’enfermement, l’immobilité ou la perte progressive des sens sont pour lui les moyens d’exploration de la nature humaine. À l’instar de la bouteille géante à l’intérieur de laquelle Abraham Poincheval effectue actuellement une remontée du Rhône à contre-courant, l’exposition réunira plusieurs habitacles dans lesquels, ou sur lesquels, il a vécu plusieurs jours.
À l’occasion de son exposition personnelle au Palais de Tokyo, Abraham Poincheval a imaginé deux nouvelles performances.
