Dear Shaded Viewers,

The latest offering from Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac opened this evening at 7 rue Debelleyme. The group show features work from 36 contemporary artists over 3 floors. One of my favourite pieces from the exhibition was a 30 minute film by Catherine Sullivan called "The Chittendens" on the lower ground floor. Grainy black and white images of human bodies jerking in a sinister dance to a score by Sean Griffin are mixed in with bright scenes of intruiging characters on a rural island. 

A very well curated exhibition overall, work sits harmoniously side by side and intertwined together, while retaining the identities of each artist.

Pierre Bismuth. I was surprised to see a copy of the Irish times amongst some of the framed pieces on the wall, a reminder to me that my days left in Paris are numbered. Bismuth created this piece in 1999 when he was examining newspapers and repeating images amidst the text.
