Alian Delorme "Little Dolls"
This event has ended.
Alian Delorme's "Little Dolls" presents charming smiles of little girls which soon evoke an eerie sensation for the viewer. Cute little girls are the subject of his work, but a close look reveals that the images are retouched through the use of computer, pointing to issues of hybridized bodies and his criticism toward consumer society. Specifically, he focuses on how images of children are objectified in advertisements.
This is part of the exhibition series, "'Paris/ Tokyo' Upground, Foreign Seeds", celebrating the 150th anniversary of Franco-Japan Diplomatic Relations. This project consists of exhibitions taking place both in Tokyo and Paris. In October, selected Japanese emerging contemporary artists were sent to Paris for their exhibitions, and up-and-coming French artists are invited to hold exhibitions at different venues in Tokyo this month, with the aim to promote the cultural exchange between the two countries and also to provide the talented artists with international exposures.
