Tyranny of objects
For The Tyranny of Objects some artists are invited to show indomitable objects that cast a critical light on our rational, constraining or downright authoritarian production patterns.
For the exhibition « The Tyranny of Objects », at the Galerie des Galeries (Galeries Lafayette – Paris), some artists (Alexandre Singh, Didier Faustino, Noam Toran, Julie Bena, Wesley Meuris, Haegue Yang, …) and designers (Serge Mouille, Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Jurgen Bey, Dunne & Raby, …) are invited by Alexandra Fau to show indomitable objects that cast a critical light on our rational, constraining or downright authoritarian production patterns, with the David Dubois’ scenography (designer himself).
Having become intelligent and endowed with speech, these objects draw from a wide array of fields, such as philosophy, architecture and animation, for a combination of light-hearted fun and serious critique. Having spent so much time in the presence of humans, objects have developed the ability to mimic us.
Now they are truly coming into their own, fomenting a soft rebellion against the dictates of comfort, good taste and functionality.
