For the eighth edition of the Equinoxes program, Maison Camille Fournet called on the Russian artist group Recycle Group to imagine a new creative space in its boutique at 5 rue Cambon. When art and leather goods meet, it gives a surprising and fascinating mix.
Eight editions, eight artists and eight equinoxes. Every six months, the Maison Camille Fournet invites an artist or group of artists to “look at their world”.
This year, it’s Recycle Group, a group of artists from the North of France, who are putting down their suitcases, or rather their creations, within the walls of the pretty Camille Fournet boutique at 5, rue Cambon, to rethink the spaces. Surrounded by bags, watches and wooden furniture, the work is glued to the mirror, which itself occupies a central place on a white wall, as if it were one with the decor.
Between web and mythology
The equinox is a perfect balance between day and night. And the male duo Recycle Group illustrates it well with this pixelated and squared creation. They take over the web space in real and question our perception of reality and the world around us.
For this Parisian project, Recycle Group was inspired by the Greek myth Phaeton, a character who loses control of the chariot before being exiled from the sky. Here, the metaphor shows a person who, after losing his virtual personality, breaks down into small squares (or pixels) after being exiled from the web. A modern reference to mythology.
