Paris, 11 May 2012, Art Media Agency (AMA).
The Emmanuel Perrotin Gallery in Paris is hosting the Fuzlab duo until 15 May, and will host it again from 5 to 16 June 2012. This exhibition takes the form of a public workshop, a performance during which the artists paint a fresco several dozen meters long in the presence of visitors.
Fuzlab is the fruit of the artists’ fortuitous meeting. Firstly Luz, illustrator and press caricaturist for the Charlie Hebdo newspaper, and secondly, the Italo-American musician Fabrizio Moretti, drummer in rock group The Strokes.
According to the press release published by the gallery, the two men met in a Parisian café where they started to share their passion for drawing. They then went into producing a fresco on an eighty meter long and thirty meters high paper roll. They settled in a Parisian flat where Emmanuel Perrotin got wind of their firm and decided to offer them the use of his gallery.
The work, described by Emmanuel Perrotin as a cathartic tragedy, loosely draws inspiration from the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur to produce a current version of it mixing betrayals, sex, murder and power struggle.
