with Southway Studio and Bella Hunt & Ddc
curated by Emmanuelle Luciani
18 November 2021 — 28 January 2022
For Royal Fantasy, Southway Studio summons the spectrums of the past by following in the footsteps of Louis XIII, and the meeting of Nordic and Italian styles. From the proto-baroque under Richelieu to the neo-gothic of the 19th century, through the twirling rocaille of Louis XV, Royal Fantasy is an acidic rereading of aristocratic splendor combined with fantasy and pop references. Memories of forms, the works of Bella Hunt & Ddc are tributes and formal crystallizations, born from the sedimentation of history and stylistic accumulations, haunting this historical walk.
