VICTORI CONTEMPORARY thanks you for joining us at Fotofever Paris 2013 for our exhibition Léo Caillard: Sous le Musée at the Carrousel du Louvre!
To the crowds of Paris and supporters abroad,
Our appreciation goes out to everyone that joined us for the exhibition and supported along the way. Un grand merci à tous!
Showing work from 2011 to the brand new series Sous le Musée of 2013, this exhibition was a narrative on the fusion of timeless art and architecture, with our present day lives and human constructs. From our fast-paced visits through museums that we hope to revisit and remember through iPhone snapshots, to the refreshing contemporary renditions of legendary mythical icons, all the way to the exploration through time and space with apocalypse-style reconstruction at the Louvre, which upon further thought simultaneously confuses one as to whether the past is rising up or the future is closing in. Throughout these different series are interconnected concepts that Caillard is able to visually construct with brilliant execution and technique. And while varied in subject matter and manipulative style, Caillard makes us question the grander schemes of time that exist and where we, in the technologically charged present day, currently land on that spectrum, all while flawlessly and ironically using one of the most timeless places on earth as the backdrop — The Louvre Museum.
