French art studio is proud to present Sylvie Barco new exhibition ‘Lomoscope #2 Asia’.
This solo show is dedicated to Asia, putting in light the great fascination the artist has developed over the last decade while travelling through this continent. Nine artworks will be featured to pay a beautiful tribute to the wonderful cultural heritage of Asian countries.
Sylvie Barco 'Lomoscope' series is a journey seen through the lenses of a vintage eye. Using an iconic Russian multi-lens 'Lomo' camera, Sylvie Barco brings out in a unique way the fascinating multi-faceted place that Asia is. From its specific feature this camera gives to the artist infinite possibilities to create beautiful mosaic compositions in order to put in light the deep ambivalent feelings that this continent inspires. Each artwork is a beautiful set up created from apparent similar photographs where intriguing shapes emerge from a composition to evoke a legend, a story, a character.
Acting as a visual storyteller, Sylvie Barco will also set up an installation in the gallery created from her travel diaries and objects brought back from Asia.
