Book Club #22: Fallos By Marc Martin & Arthur Gillet
Fallos is the result of the collaboration of two artists: Marc Martin and Arthur Gillet. They both are fascinated by different hypostases of maleness, archaic as well as contemporary, and their work is informed by this obsession. The result of this association is a beautiful book and an exhibition that will takes place from March 26th till May 5th at the galerie Denker & Schneider in Berlin.
Arthur and Marc are at play: they play with the values of traditional manliness — efficiency, authority, domination, glory, force, power, technical prowess. They privilege the unseen and the intuitive; pleasure and utopia; chance and doubt; slowness and languor. Their favourite perversion is to illuminate the shadows that surround filth; to highlight the splendour of depravity; to glorify decadence. You can purchase FALLOS the book over here.
