8 - 11 November Grand Palais, Paris
Look for us in booth B-33
East Wing travels to Paris Photo
, the largest international art fair dedicated to the photographic medium, held each November at the historic Grand Palais in Paris. Since 1997, the Fair’s mission is to promote and nurture photographic creation and the galleries, publishers and artists at its source.
For this presentation East Wing mounts a duo exhibition of works from Cortis & Sonderegger
's series 'Icons (Double Take)' and new works by Cédric Delsaux
from his series, 'Back to the Stars / Welcome to the Dark Corporation'.
Surrounded in a world of ‘fake news’ and digital manipulation, French artist, Cédric Delsaux
, and Swiss duo Cortis & Sonderegger
construct surreal worlds straddling between manufactured and concrete realities. Using digital and analogue tools the artists challenge historical fact and future possibilities.
Cortis & Sonderegger’s Icons, dissect historical moments with analogue tools (paint, glue, cotton wool, etc) transforming iconic imagery embedded in the public consciousness. Their hand made forgeries question the temporal nature of experience and memory.
In the new series from Cédric Delsaux, 'Back to the Stars / Welcome to the Dark Corporation', the artist employs digital tools to transform familiar locations of modernity; parking lots, peripheral zones and waste-lands, into backdrops of a world stage populated by conquering robots. Collaborating with a team of digital technicians, the artist fashions incredible digital dioramas to question the potential realities of an automated society.
