Magda Danysz Gallery
78 Rue Amelot, 75011 Paris, France
Charles Pétillon presents his poetic photographs around an immersive installation designed exclusively for Magda Danysz Gallery. After making a huge buzz in London late 2015 with a floating installation of over 100,000 balloons in Covent Garden, the photographer invades the Magda Danysz Gallery.
Charles Pétillon's Invasions take over places around the world ranging from Calais and Dover beaches to the streets of Shanghai or to the black slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily. Pétillon's white clouds highlight environments—hen addresses the disappearance of part of our world, evokes memories and questions the human footprint over nature.
Pétillon creates a unique relationship between the ephemeral aspect of the installation and his final photograph, which is a testimony of something that does not exist anymore.
In the show at the gallery, besides these photographs, Charles Pétillon presents a new installation designed specifically for the space. Looking like an artificial forest, a dense arrangement of balloons allows visitors to experience the space in a different and immersvie way.
