(PARENTHESE - COLLABORATION : SIMON BERNHEIM/ EVENT10
(Evahober Gallery - Paris (FR), June 2005
Several dualities are at stake here, at least with the association of these two individualities.
The series of posters that comes with the visitor along the 3 stages, from its entry in the gallery till he reaches the depths, inducing a route such as a tracking game.
But the essential is not there, the game is more made of this double intervention, and maybe even triple, the unexpected playing a central role here.
Simon’s semiological designs, purified, almost abstracts, are juxtaposing to fake posters of Event10 that subvert graphics codes in « dirtying » and altering what should be without vices.
