MAZACCIO & DROWILAL : WILD STYLE
Mazaccio & Drowilal are the winners of the 2013 BMW residency at the musée Nicéphore Niepce
Mazaccio & Drowilal present “Wild Style”, an anthropologic and iconographic, and above all photographic study of animals and the contemporary cultural representations. “The figures and the objects collected in “Wild Style” evoque kitch prints, 1990s soppy or flashy, often found on cheap t-shirts, childish iron-on transfers, Automotive body paint, personalized mugs or household items, street or garden decore...”Wild Style” appears such as a catalog of commodified forms of animal life by image, to the point that the separation between the real and its representation becomes imperceptible.” Extract from the assay, “Spoiler Alert!” by Fani Morières and Nicolas Heimendinger in “Wild Style”.
The BMW Residence was founded in 2011 from a common desire between BMW Art & Culture and the musée Nicéphore Niépce to support contemporary photography and its diffusion to the public. Each year, François Cheval, Chief Curator of the musée Nicéphore Niépce and the museum’s technical laboratory team support a personal project by a young artist working in the medium of photography, chosen after a call for submissions.
