AboutVEGAS is delighted to present âVery Ape', a solo exhibition by French/Swiss artist Pascal Rousson, which delves into the concept of primitive world and its elements.
This will be the galleries' last exhibition held at its current premises on Vyner Street, the gallery is excited to announce the move to an independent newly built space at the end of February.
Pascal Rousson seeks to explore the cavemen's way of life and to identify with it. Subsequently, âVery Ape' can be perceived as a compilation, representing random findings of a caveman in his chaotic behaviour: a collection of found objects that a primitive human being saw as means of bringing value to his existence and, most importantly, to make more sense of the world.
The notion of âreturn back to the origin' is the topic on Rousson's mind and is evident through his artistic practice. Objects, such as a cow rug and wood panels that are used in artist's works are initially found items and instruments for an artist to improvise with and convert into art.
Thus, the creative process opens new dimensions for the objects, and ultimately gives them new life.
