New Heart City Gallery Presents: FKDL “Scènes de Vie” (Paris, France)


> The New Heart City Gallery is honored to host from February 18th to
> March 31st 2011 the urban artist who established himself these
> recent years in the Paris Street Art scene and now internationally
> recognized: Franck Duval (FKDL).
> The artist with the emblematic urban landmark has opted for his new
> solo show to use essentially the transparent scotch-tape collage
> technique.
> From pictures of 1950’s life scenes, he reinvents history. He
> removes the smooth side of idioms, boring scenes of perfection and
> innocence to lead the images in his time and modernity. Under his
> scotch-tape, the material is revealed, only the color goes through
> the ages, the mark of a new era.
> The female silhouettes, provocative inadvented, assert this sudden
> reality marked by rhythm and movement. Only characters’ ornaments
> are survivors of the Old Time and bear faces and attitudes of actors
> and actresses of the 50’s movies.
> The normalized and fixed scenes of life and the glossy paper stars
> have crossed through time to give way to a real live show.
