Boris Tellegen: Fault Zone at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris

 

Runs from 21 November 2014

The Palais de Tokyo renews its commitment to the urban arts by dedicating new spaces to graffiti and street art, with Lek, Sowat and Hugo Vitrani at the helm.

Intersections of black lines and crisscrossing chrome, pink and fluorescent orange vertical lines are extended by taut threads. Resembling overlapping, deconstructed letters, these graphic compositions create a momentum that is caught in the fissured drywall and covered in black and silver lightning, spat out by a paint-rigged fire extinguisher – the DIY weapon of choice of the painters of large scale vandalism. Projected shadows, reflections on ceilings and walls, broken mirrors creating effects of symmetry and dissymmetry: Boris Tellegen lacerates the space of his “Zone de Faille” [Fault Zone], confronting its architecture to provoke new perspectives into existence.
