⇒Exposition « Plonk & replonk » - 17ème Fête de la francophonie en Chine

Plonk and Replonk, based in Switzerland, is an exhibition created by the Froidevaux brothers. In their own creative way, and collectively, they have distinguished themselves by creating series of postcards, recycling and retouching old photographs with a mix of black humor, nonsense, kitschy, baroque and puns taken literally. Their work suggests a wicked sense of humor, which borders on the sardonic. They turn around ordinary objects and habits in order to ask us to see them in other ways. Their astonishing images allow us to grasp reality from a distance, distorted by time and fantasy.

This exhibition brings a series of images with French captions (English translation will be provided) Plonk and Replonk’s exhibition is organized in partnership with the Alliance francaise network and the Embassy of Switzerland in China.

In collaboration with Alliances Françaises, the Embassy will organize exhibitions in Guangzhou, Nanjing, Beijing, Xi’an, Qingdao, Dalian, Hong Kong and Tianjin from March to December. One of the artists will be present for the first three openings from March 23rd to April 8th.

On March 30, the public will also have the chance to get into the world of Plonk & Replonk and discuss it directly with the artists during a lecture at the Chinese Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing.
