Vernissage Thursday September 5th, 2019
18h - 21h
For his third solo exhibition at Antoine Levi, Paris, Peruvian artist Daniel Jacoby takes a look at Lima shopping center Polvos Rosados. Comprised of hundreds of small self-run stalls selling anything from candies, to snickers, to DVD’s, this popular shopping destination has thrived into a glaring, gigantic establishment. One of Jacoby’s interests lies in the effect that the ever-cheaper decorative elements, like LED strips and lasers, have at creating the sensation of modernity even if precarious conditions hide behind.
To accompany the light-emitting rhythm, Brussels-based composer Charlie Usher (1987, UK) has composed the exhibition’s soundtrack, which he will play live during the opening.
