Straddling between manufactured and concrete realities in the terrain of ‘fake news’, Cédric Delsaux's (FR) new series 'Back to the Stars', & duo Cortis & Sonderegger's (CH) 'Double Take' question perceptions of truth, challenging historical fact & proposing future possibilities
For Immediate Release East Wing travels to Paris Photo, the largest international art fair dedicated to the photographic medium, held each November at the historic Grand Palais in Paris. Since 1997, the Fair’s mission is to promote and nurture photographic creation and the galleries, publishers and artists at its source.
For this presentation East Wing mounts exhibition of works from Swiss duo, Cortis & Sonderegger's series 'Double Take (Icons)' and never before seen works by Cédric Delsaux from his evolvoing series, 'Back to the Stars'.
Surrounded in this new world of ‘fake news’, French artist, Cédric Delsaux, and Swiss duo Cortis & Sonderegger explore constructed surreal worlds the straddle between manufactured and concrete realities. Using digital and analogue tools, the artists challenge historical fact and future possibilities.
Cortis & Sonderegger’s "Double Take (Icons)", dissects historical moments with analogue tools (paint, glue, cotton wool, etc) transforming iconic imagery embedded in the public consciousness. Their homemade forgeries question the temporal nature of experience and memory.
In the new series from Cédric Delsaux, 'Back to the Stars', the artist employs digital tools to transform familiar locations of modernity; parking lots, peripheral zones and waste-lands, into backdrops of a world stage populated by conquering robots. Collaborating with a team of digital technitions, the artist fashions incredible digital dioramas to question the potential realities of an automated society.
