Nick & Chlo'e Exhibit in Paris
Nick & Chlo'e exhibit their photography in two new shows in Paris. Both shows opened Friday June 1st. "Lord of the Beasts of the Earth and the Fishes of the Sea" is the photography duo's first solo exhibition. It opened at Le Baron de Paris last Friday. The images, inspired by Diane Ducret's book Femmes de Dictateur, explore the precariousness and glamour of dictators' wives. French actress Fatou n'Diaye portrays the seven stages of the reign between glory and exile in Nick & Chlo'e's photographs. The exhibition continues at Panther Rhei Gallery.
The second, entitled "Are We Hard Yet?" is a collaboration between the photography duo and Berlin 3D artists Zeitguised, inspired by "Celebrity Death Match." Nick & Chlo'e and Zeitguised go head-to-head competing to see which is better-3D art or photography. The exhibition is on at L'After Squat.
Nick & Chlo'e also photographed promotional posters for Luciano & the Vagabundos, a performance group based in Europe. The posters were shot in a Paris studio where the eighteen DJs represented by Luciano's label Cadenza meet once a year to be photographed together. Nick & Chlo'e recreated a circus on set to "echo their happy and fun approach to electronic music." The shoot itself was crazy, with all eighteen DJs showing an immense amount of energy, and the monkey, snake, and bird acting as props. The posters will promote the DJs' events in Ibiza at the Pacha and Ushuaia clubs.
"Lord of the Beasts of the Earth and the Fishes of the Sea" continues at Panther Rhei Gallery until June 9th, 2012.
"Are We Hard Yet?" runs at L'After Squat until June 11th, 2012.
