On the occasion of its first solo exhibition, Galerie Charlot asked Dominique Pétrin, a self-taught Canadian artist, to take over the gallery's premises with its dazzling in situ installations. Made of silkscreened paper, cut and glued to the wall, Dominique Pétrin's installations cover the entire surface of the walls and floor to create an immersive environment. These silkscreened paper frescoes are freely inspired by Greco-Roman ones, and include printed elements referring to domestic life and our consumer society. A former petrochemical singer known as Poney P, a multidisciplinary poet, the artist describes her installations as a contemporary "theatre of the imagination", where mass consumption objects, electronic devices, surveillance devices, plants, medicines and other everyday objects are staged. It reshapes the entire surrounding space, blurring borders, spaces and time. Its motifs, a kind of digital tapestries that cover the walls and floor, play with the archaeology of digital technology, strictly linked to the loom, but also with the contemporary history of design, from Eduardo Paolozzi to the Memphis Group.
