For his new solo exhibition at Isabelle Gounod Gallery, Florent Lamouroux presents a series of human-sized sculptures, created by modeling his own body in an assemblage of bin bags and taps. The arrangement of these artificial, standardized and apparently petrified empty bodies is also an echo to Lamouroux’s “dry-cries,” the low-quality toys that the artist reduces to simple dark silhouettes, as though embalmed in their own plastic skin. The artist’s work presents a sensible and poetic way to explore the impact and implications of marketing strategies on various facets of human behavior.
Founded in 2004, Isabelle Gounod Gallery presents emerging and confirmed artists from the French and international artistic scene. Recently, Glen Baxter, Jacqueline Dauriac, Moussa Sarr and Katharina Ziemke have joined the gallery. With a multidisciplinary program (painting, drawing, photography, video, installations, performances), Isabelle Gounod Gallery has strengthened its recognition by discovering and supporting young painters, now entered in such prestigious collections as Centre Georges Pompidou, Société Générale collection, CNAP, FMAC, FRAC AUVERGNE, FRAC PACA, FRAC Haute- Normandie, FRAC Basse-Normandie, MoMA (NYC), LACMA (USA), Houston Fine Arts Museum, Pinault Collection, Pernod-Ricard Collection, and Collection EMERIGE.
