Vernissage de Xavier Veilhan "Dogs"

Summer 2020

Après un printemps avec des expositions de Tony Matelli et Kristina Jansson, la galerie parisienne prend désormais une courte pause estivale et est ouverte sur rendez-vous.
En attendant, les chiens de Xavier Veilhan montent la garde.

Xavier Veilhan's Dogs are monochromatic and larger than life, confronting us with the illusion of their realness that contrasts with the strangeness of their colour and size. Veilhan plays with the notions of the generic, of the industrially produced object and of universal representation, creating objects at once ambivalent and stark. Well-known for his sculptures that convey his interest in the vocabularies of both classical statuary and modernity, his work is multi-faceted, also encompassing installation, painting, photography as well as hybrids of all of these, whilst also engaged in performance work and filmmaking. He has made numerous public works in locations across the world.

The Dogs were initially exhibited on the rooftop of the MAAT Museum in Lissabon, Portugal in 2019 as part of the installation Romy and the Dogs.
