Represented by Guillaume Leblon and Prinz Gholam, this ephemeral, experimentally and collectively conceived exhibition takes place at Grésillon Metal Shop. Working with both galleries on a regular basis and located just steps from Galerie Jocelyn Wolff in the 20th arrondissement in Paris, Grésillon Metal Shop is one of the last remaining industrial metallurgical spaces in Paris. At the documenta 14, Prinz Gholam, a Berlin-based artist duo, presented an ensemble of works in dialogue with Athenian archeological sites: the Temple of Olympian Zeus and the Odeon of Agrippa at the centre of the Agora of Athens. Composing a genealogy of shapes across time and the history of art, their practice summons an iconographical repertoire that mixes epochs and artistic fields, inciting a work of identification, association and supposition.
The exhibition design primarily developed by Guillaume Leblon constituted a form of extension of his solo-show which opened at the same period at Galerie Jocelyn Wolff, (…) “YOUPORN”, “ZBOOBY”, “ZEROGRAS”, “ZÄ©ZETTE” (…), 19.10-23.12.2017.
