About

Opening Ceremony: August 4th 2016 - 18:00-22:00 
Runtime: August 4th 2016 – September 10th 2016

Madame, a young contemporary artist coming from Paris, continuously explores and questions collage as a medium in order to reinvent and reshape it. She creates her impressive large-scale pieces from everyday materials that she finds in her surroundings, ranging from old paper and fabric to adverts in magazines. 

Veiled in mystery – her real name is unknown – Madame covers the walls of the City of Light with eye-catching pieces that remind a passer-by of the 1950s and 1960s advertising billboards. Her striking collages emphasize nostalgia to visualize and understand a present and the important human values such as sharing, solidarity, empathy, love, compassion, acceptance and tolerance of diversity. Madame’s whimsical universe is inhabited by creatures like women with moustaches, cats with fishlike characteristics and housewives with bodies of male athletes. A sense of humor is an important part of Madame’s art, which amongst being amusing, has a larger and deeper meaning and a direct critique of our contemporary society. 

OPEN WALLS Gallery is delighted to present Urban Zoo, the first solo exhibition of Paris-based artist Madame in Germany.
The opening reception will be held on August 4th from 6pm to 10pm. The artist will attend the Vernissage.

The show will be on display from August 4th through September 10th.https://www.facebook.com/events/594480597380204/
