“Paulin, Paulin, Paulin" Features The Work Of Designer Pierre Paulin Next To Contemporary Artists @ Galerie Perrotin In Paris

On view now: “Paulin, Paulin, Paulin,” at Galerie Perrotin, Paris offers a dialogue between Pierre Paulin designs produced in limited editions by Paulin, Paulin, Paulin (in particular the “Déclive” from 1966, plus the “Jardin à la française” armchairs, tables and rugs made specially for the Palais d’Iéna in 1985; “Dune” and “Tapis-Siège” designed for the Herman Miller project in 1970, etc.), with works by contemporary artists such as Mike Bouchet, César, John De Andrea, Tara Donovan, Elmgreen & Dragset, Laurent Grasso, Candida Höfer, KAWS, Bertrand Lavier, Heinz Mack, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, Jesús Rafael Soto and Xavier Veilhan. A number of these artists have used Paulin designs in their own work (Bertrand Lavier, Elmgreen & Dragset, Candida Höfer) while others have created pieces that suggest loose formal affinities or evoke Paulin’s universe. Paulin, Paulin, Paulin opens today and will be on view until December 19, 2015 at Galerie Perrotin, 76 Rue de Turenne, Paris
