JULES JULIEN

MAY 23, 2009 – AUG 2, 2009

CONCEPT

Tokyo, kaleidoscope of fashion -
a collective search for individuality.

Random streets, random individuals?Tokyo draws a catalogue in permanent evolution, a notebook in numerous tendencies, and a never finished silhouette.

Jules Julien dismembers bodies from fashion pictures, and patches them back together. With those bodies between the individual and clothing, he questions the part there is between intimacy and parade, the assertiveness and membership of the group, the perpetual movement of fashion and the ephemeral side of life.

In this exhibition Jules Julien gambles with unmasking the fashion victims. The mixture of styles becomes a style in itself; fashion, a collective work.






BIOGRAPHY

  • Jules Julien

    www.julesjulien.com

    Born in 1975, artist illustrator who lives and works in Paris.
    The drift and shift, which operates on the work of Jules Julien, is the questioning about the reality of the world which surrounds us. He puts in scene a world where the symbol blends with the anecdote and where the strange is concealed behind the images in his meticulously drawings. An underground world where the super heroes would be called: Eros and Thanatos, where the tensions would give birth to chimera tempting and poisonous. Jules Julien started in 2006 a personal research through his drawings and designing.
    Noticed by the press and different galleries, he is published in Europe, the USA and in Australia and took part in a collective exhibition (Gallery Margalef & Gipponi - Antwerp Belgium -2007, Gallery Antebellum - Hollywood - California - 2008). He is currently preparing two other exhibitions (Nuit Blanche - Mayenne - France - October 2009, Galerie Choiseul - Paris - France - December 2009).
