Transcom Primitive

Pierre Clément @ XPO gallery, Jan 9

8 January 2016

Artist Pierre Clément will be discussing his current exhibition, Transcom Primitive, at Paris’ XPO Gallery on January 9.

The show -which has been extended its closing date from December 12, 2015, to January 16, 2016 -draws on the symbolic power of images and objects and the role of the transmitter between a giver and a receiver in the Information Age.

With his focus on the role of these physical symbols and icons as shifting and creating new forms of langage, Clément will discuss his work in conversation with curator Marianne Derrien.

See the FB event page for (limited) details.**

Pierre Clément @ XPO Gallery, Oct 22 – Dec 12

22 October 2015

Pierre Clément is presenting his Transcom Primitive solo exhibition at Paris’ XPO Gallery, opening October 22 and running to December 12.

Curated by Marianne Derrien, the show is a first at XPO by Paris-based Clément, whose work interweaves the aesthetic, cultural and political forms and considerations emerging with the internet.

The exhibition will show the (tele-)communication between assemblages of manufactured objects and raw materials, questioning “the sculptural potential of the image” and the room for non-human error within sculpture, design and technology. “Thereby”, as Derrien states in the press release, giving each of these forms an alternate history filled with fictions and new symbols”.

See the XPO Gallery website for details.**

[Ed’s note: the exhibition has since been extended to January 16, 2016]
