In 2019 La Galerie Centre for Contemporary Art in Noisy-le-Sec is celebrating its 20th anniversary. The exhibition “Le Dandy des Gadoues” revolves around La Galerie’s spirit of place and imaginative potential, playing on the unique features of a 19th-century bourgeois villa designed by architect Charles Barrois (1863–1929).
Taking as its focal point the literary figure created by Michel Tournier (1924–2016) in his novel Gemini (1975), this group show emphasises a distinctive aesthetic: that of an endless reinterpretation and degeneration of certain products of popular culture, some of them tinged with kitsch.
