Mrzyk & Moriceau — Poppies are also Flowers 3/4
Mrzyk & Moriceau
Poppies are also Flowers 3/4
Past: April 20 → May 26, 2012
We do not always know what the consequences of our actions are, and it seems easier
to predict more ordinary everyday cause/consequences effects. The drawings and
sculptures by MRZYK & MORICEAU are based on a refutation of these two
preconceptions. The outcome is doubt as to the actual business of seeing:
it might get things right, but it always thinks of itself as foreseeing.
But seeing is not always reseeing.
Which explains our pleasure in discovering a new work by this duo, the third
of their contributions to the Air de Paris vitrine.
Petra Mrzyk and Jean-François Moriceau have been collaborating since 1998.
During these last years they have had many individual exhibitions (Ratio 3,
Los Angeles; La Caixa, Barcelone; Villa Arson,Nice..) as well as group shows
(Chapelle du Genêteil, Château-Gontier; le Crédac, Ivry-sur-Seine; Loftprojekt
ETAGI,Saint-Petersbourg; Bétonsalon, Paris…).
The works of Mrzyk et Moriceau are in many french and american collections,
both public and private, such as FNAC, les FRAC Poitou Charentes, Pays de la Loire,
Ile-de-France, and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la ville de Paris, du MoMA, New-York
et du LACMA, Los Angeles.
They have also made music videos for Air and Sébastien Tellier.
