Jérôme Wilfredo BaccaglioLogos for Drones and Such...

I created a catalogue for drone logos. It gathers a heterogenous iconography (invented, drawn, found) whose every motif is available for purchase as a canvas, a tattoo, a drawing or a sticker. 

This is an oblique strategy adopted to talk about the interpretation of an image (as the spectator, or as the artist, to assign it a meaning, a name); the versus created by hand-made work and a digital image; mercantilism; the matter of copyright and its role in an information-infested era.

I made an architectural model of white cardboard, placed on four white metal legs. I decorated the model with white curtains that flow over the model down to the floor. Inside the model, I put old toys of mine, objects that originally belong to a doll’s house. By attaching the legs directly to the model, it looks like a table. 

I wanted to create something surreal, like a dream; the objects inside the model are slightly too big, and the model bleeds off as the curtains overflow.

Julien GremaudThe Big Picture

Two wallpapers face each other. They are very white, their black lines are basic. The templates have been done. It was questioned whether the surfaces should be solid or empty, filled with monochromy or blocks of primary colour. One can always enlarge them if necessary. These are ai files. One no longer needs a Hasselblad camera. There is not a whole lot left of the source image. By the way: photography wants to appropriate space. But we are still unable to do so. Eventually, the finishings, very weighty. I promise you Johanne, I will take some pictures for our collaboration’s archives.

This is a partial truth, a fragment of my understanding, my sense of things. Being alone in the office, being alone in the library, being alone in the studio is still about a certain notion of improving. I have this impulse that pushes me right in the situation that makes me improve. Well then, I feel specially special.
