DEWAR & GICQUEL AT PALAIS DE TOKYO
Winners of the 2012 Marcel Duchamp contemporary art prize, French art duo Daniel Dewar and Grégory Gicquel present their latest show, Jus d’Orange as a part of Palais de Tokyo’s new season Soleil Froid, which opened yesterday. Using sculpture and animation, the exhibition explores the idea of movement in the otherwise motionless, as well as the process raw materials undergo when transforming into representational objects. We see statues turn into dancers, mountains rise up and crumble, and more – all in a pixelated, GIF format reminiscent of the days of early cinema and stop-motion. Opening a new world of possibility for sculpture, Dewar and Gicquel make an instant impression among the Palais de Tokyo’s always jam-packed roster.
Until 20 May. Tue-Sun, noon-midnight.
Palais de Tokyo, 13 av du Président Wilson, 16th. M° Iéna. 01.47.23.38.86. www.palaisdetokyo.com/
