Philippe Katerine at Galerie des Galeries
Unclassifiable performer/ artiste Philippe Katerine has been given carte blanche at the newly made-over Galerie des Galeries. He has devised a show that comes in slices, ‘like a pineapple’. Divided among several galleries, the show gives visitors an excellent opportunity to discover new facets of the unpredictable artist. While known especially as a singer in France, Katerine also works in other domains, notably film, dance and the visual arts. In his video clips and concerts, he dresses as the Queen of England, a basketball player or the Pope in order to deliver words of wisdom or vice. In his personal journal cum graphic novel, published by Denoël in 2007, the artist shares his memories in a mix of drawings, texts and collages. For his project at the Galerie, he has pushed his outrageous introspection further…
Until 2 June. Tue-Sat, 9.30am-7.30pm (9pm, Thu).
