Roxy Rocky @ Galerie Bertrand Baraudou
06/07/2013 @ 8:00 pm - 31/08/2013 @ 5:00 pmfree
Rox & Rouky is the 31st animated film and the 24th “Animated classic” from the Disney Studios. It came out in 1981 and is based on Daniel P. Mannix´The Fox and the Hound which appeared in 1967, telling us the story of Rox the fox and Rouky the dog´s friendship.
Roxy Rocky, title of this exhibition upcoming @ Galerie Bertrand Baraudou is therefore making reference to Disney´s film but at the same time Sylvester Stallone´s character Rocky Balboa and English group Roxy music. An expo which is willing to scrutinize the world of spectacular, where the image is closely tied to the economic activity. Artists question which should be the role of entertainment in the artistic production highlighting its smooth and polished dimension.
Counter-representations and re-presentations, the exhibited works propose a critical look, amusing and also ironic on this “entertainment” society where visual identity appears to the individual as a multi-faceted projection of himself.
A coral exhibition with Arnaud Labelle-Rojoux, Jean-Luc Verna, Eric Madeleine, Alain K and Gwénaël Billaud who will be questioning art and its limits starting next Saturday and for the next 2 months. More info on their webpage.
(should be noted that Galerie BB will be closed during august but the expo can be visited by appointment)
