Gelitin at Emmanuel Perrotin
The provocative Austrian collective, who presented a solo show at the Musée d’Art Moderne back in 2008, return to Paris with a series of joyful, bold, avant-garde new paintings. Gelatin is not afraid of switching styles. From realistic to monochrome, from gracious art to everything, from everything to minimal and back again. The richness of their artistic language is humorous, provocative, challenging, charming, sometimes illuminating, but never boring. The paintings reveal absurd, chaotic and playful scenes with Gelitin and friends as the protagonists, often naked and in improbable, ridiculous and outrageous poses. They comprise traces of their performances through which banal and trivial situations are transformed into initiatory and revelatory experiences.
Until 21 April. Tue-Sat, 10am-7pm.
Galerie Perrotin, 10 impasse Saint Claude, 3rd. M° St-Sebastien Froissart. 01.42.16.79.79. www.perrotin.com/
