Paul Chapellier's (1989, FR) practice spans photography, sculpture and installation to examine the intertwining of ideology and taste through architecture, objects and spaces. Blurring the reality of objects and their dissemination as images, he focuses on the moment of their consumption and examines our relationship to the built environment through issues of social practices, lifestyle and identity construction. Spaces are reassembled into photographic and sculpture installations, emphasizing how images act as objects and how objects survive in images. Often appropriating standardized display systems and printing methods from the industrial or the commercial realm, his practice addresses questions of trade, branding and artificiality in installations that are in turn critical, affirmative and whimsical.
