Ruiz Stephinson are Paris-based duo Coralie Ruiz and Anthony Stephinson who also run the art and publishing space Goswell Road. Exploring the figure of the hand through sculptural elements, drawing and neon lighting, the work was installed in a late XVIIIth century hunting lodge designed by architect Ange-Jacques Gabriel for Louis XV in 1765.
The exhibition is the first in the newly re-opened space which will begin a series of programmed events. An accompanying text written by Sabrina Tarasoff muses on devotion, hierarchy and history, noting “What a quiet gesture modernism was, what a small dream in the end.”**
