“Pop-up Store by Galerie des Galeries”

Paris, 26 July 2012, Art Media Agency (AMA). Until 22 September, Galeries Lafayette Haussmann and its Galerie des Galeries is organising a Pop-up Store where three disciplines are put on display: art, fashion, and design. A scene painting by designer Julie Pfligersdorffer opens the dialogue between these three themes and enhances the displayed works for sale. A selection of works by fashion designers, as well as clothing, jewelery, accessories, and books related to art are also available for purchase. Prices range from €30 to €2,000.

For his first exhibition, the visual artist focuses on appearances, especially those of important political people. They are set through a series of dyptichs opening the exhibition. The artist exacerbates detail to the point that the subject gets forgotten and becomes an object. In the following room, the visitor comes across the same objects again. Written down on post-its, they form a story. The exhibition finally ends with watercolour paintings painted in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, where Philippe Katerine lives. Philippe Katerine first knew success in 2005 as a singer, with his eighth album “Robots après tout” which notably includes his song Louxor j’adore.
