PLEIX GROUP EXHIBITION AT LA GAITE LYRIQUE, PARIS.
2062, Back and Forth to The Future. Wednesday February 1st - Sunday March 25th.
La Gaîté Lyrique is a digital arts and modern music centre which opened in Paris in December 2010.
The exhibition, entitled 2062, Back and Forth to The Future, aims to transform the gallery into a time machine. Through different artistic mediums spanning the entire gallery, the artists will use their collective imaginations to place visitors fifty years into the future, when the gallery will be celebrating its bi-centenary.
Stink directors Pleix will be exhibiting nine pieces of work titled Gulf Stream, Watercool, Family shades, Hybrid, Hot Spot, Less, Paradise, HFCS and Netlag.
While these pieces look to the future, they also have a strong social comment on the perpetual quest of the human condition to fill life with materials and consumerist pleasures.
Pleix had this to say about the project: “We have known Jérôme Delormas, the director of the Gaité Lyrique, for many years now. Actually he was the first person to invite us to exhibit at his former museum “La ferme du Buisson”. Two years ago he got in contact with us to discuss this extremely ambitious project called 2062, Back and Forth To The Future.

One of the reasons we accepted this opportunity is because he trusts us and leaves us complete creative freedom. Being free is something you can miss when you just do commercials. An exhibition forces you to think differently, which is very refreshing; having no constraints is very exiting but can also be very stressful. Overall, what we like is to experiment with different things - it can be a film, a commercial, a sculpture, an interactive installation; the more diversity the better.”
