Paul Chapellier's (1989, FR) practice spans photography, sculpture and installation to examine the intertwining of ideology and aesthetics in our relationship to material culture. Architecture and objects are fragmented and reassembled into installations that emphasize how images act as objects and how objects survive in images, blurring reality and its visual dissemination. By appropriating display systems and printing methods from the commercial realm, his practice addresses aesthetic transformations of value.
