About the show:
February 21 – April 4
Magda Danysz Gallery
78 Rue Amelot
SLEEPING BEAUTY is built up as a “vis à vis” of artworks that dialogue one with the other. The inherent power laying in each particular artwork, their inner meaning and underlying significations is something the SLEEPING BEAUTY show aims at focusing on. Each artwork is presented in a “face à face” with another artwork. The choice of each of these one to one dialogues is made to accentuate the power of each artpiece. One will revolve around the idea of power with Zhang Dali’s “Second History” painting and Ma Kang’s “Forbidden city – Chairman Mao” photograph. In another part of the show one will discover Prune Nourry’s artistically enhanced “Hand Machine” facing swiss artist Christian Gonzenbach industrial chicken sculpture. Human creative intelligence sometimes morphs into a mechanical hybrid evolution many artists point out in their works. This sleeping power/beauty is also at stake in Shepard Fairey’s propaganda imagery showcased through an extensive collection of his prints. What lays behind these marketed images is also the paradox of our societies.
