BOTHSIDES CREATED A GREAT EVENT AT THE MK2 LIBRARY
The exhibition at the Mk2 Library, organized by Yann Couedor, combines the works of the group As the Stars Fall. It’s composed of photographers, composers, and the video artists Steve Fraschini, Guillaume Silvestri and Remi Tobbal. It also features the photography of Geoffrey Gouverneur and Sheitan-M, as well as the videos of Clément Batifoulier, Pauline Goasmat and Sophia Leal.
The show challenges established formats and mediums to reveal a delicate but often crude world. The group As The Stars Fall was born of a deep desire to express, without artifice or constraint, an up-front vision of a world of violence and despair. Geoffrey Governor works from screen photographs of sensitive themes dealing with matter and time, bringing together a number of perceptual spaces and distinct times.
Sheitan-M produces work aimed at “freeing people from their blinders and expanding their senses.” In images that are often staged, he captures a world where loneliness and violence are expressed in the pores of his subjects.
The exhibition is part of a tree-part event not to be missed:
- Exhibition Watching the World Falling Down at Mk2 Bibliothèque until June 24
- Exhibition Welcome in my Mind de Sheitan M, Galerie Absoluty, 3 rue Eugène Varlin (Paris 10e) from June 11 until July 12
- Exhibition Cut Collection by Yann Couedor at Olympia from July 2 to 13
A new agency to promote artists, Bothsides Creative Agency was created in 2008 by Guillaume Silvestri, François Mandron and Yann Couedor. Its objective is to present visual artists in the same way as singer-songwriters, via buzz, special events, and exhibitions in spectacular and unusual places.
