Paul Souviron @ XPO Gallery, Jan 30 – Feb 24

29 January 2014

Paul Souviron presents his first solo show, Entropie/Anthropie, in Paris at XPO Gallery, running January 30 to February 24.

Bringing together an exhibition across sculpture, performance and installation in creating “space, gaps, landscapes or scenes” of the conquered kind, the show, with its title suggesting themes of decay and human intervention, explores the hostilities of our “retro-futuristic present” by shaping its own environment. Much like the territorial hostilities of its own nature, Souviron presents the world of the imagination inhabited by a species that’s doomed to self-destruction.

See the XPO Gallery website for details. **
