DESCRIPTION

 



Welcome! Welcome to the Brave New World. Robin Hood? That was yesterday. These days the rich take it from the poor.

 

Bongout Gallery presents funny, wild and absurd stories on fallen heroes and anti-heroes on the rise. Laurent Impeduglia's bizarre oil paintings feature grotesque stars: Rambo speaking of the miracle of life, Badman swearing that he is not bad, and Care Bears seem about to throw themselves off a building.

 

In Kottie Paloma's hand-made books, Superman still wears his super tight, super-sexy dress. But judging from his beard, the beer can in his hand and the cigarette dangling from his mouth, our hero in panties has obviously changed.

 

The animated films by the artists Stéphane Blanquet, Yann Jouette, Wojtek Skowron and Sabrina Tibourtine also deal with weird guys: a grumpy hunter gets himself a new skin; a factory worker falls in love with a headless woman; a world is reduced to machines; a girl sets out to seek herself.

 

All the works in this exhibition are about lonely figures, exceptional encounters and weird situations in life. In other words, about what the world needs: losers who struggle with daily life like heroes.
