Michel Rein Gallery
4 Sep → 28 Oct 2021
From Tuesday to Saturday 11 am to 7 pm. Closed Monday and Sunday.
The title chosen for this exhibition is quite revealing of its structure. Entirely immersive, it takes us into the artist's universe and intimacy by entering a domestic space, populated by strange objects. Whether they are useful or not, they are present and spectators of the passing of time, of the incessant comings and goings of the visitors and of their emotions in front of this new arrangement. This dummy flat is therefore a witness to movement and the passage of time. The visitor enters through what appears to be a living room, where a sort of protective cage is located in the centre; then he or she heads for a room where the objects on display can be handled. The visitor enters both the real and imaginary world of the artist as he passes through the doors of the Michel Rein gallery, but it is also an opportunity to confront his own emotions. Generally speaking, Didier Fiúza Faustino's practice lies on the border between art and architecture. He works on the relationship between the body and the space, which is generally minimal and reduced. His multiform works are at once fictional, critical and immersive as they offer new bodily experiences to visitors, whether they are alone or in groups.
