ART-O-RAMA with Southway Studio • Marseille, France • 2022
Distended, elongated and languid forms, plant or animal shadows and ghosts of form distort the familiar silhouettes of domestic furniture whose shadows stretch across a purple floor. The Weirdness boudoir gives Mannerist forms, cave furniture and the phantasmagorias of a hijacked neo-classical style their meaning as the formal embodiment of a change of cycle. Styles and eras overlap and superimpose, as evidenced by Bella Hunt & Ddc's Grand Pavois, a tribute to chivalry and car tuning, or Étienne Marc's Coquillage chair, which seems to have emerged from a sunken palace.
With: Bella Hunt & Ddc, Jenna Kaës, Etienne Marc, Hadi Alijani.
