WHILE PASCAL WAS HERE

We continue to hold the installation of our current artist, Pascal Dombis, who visited from Paris early this month. On viewing his work in the RAYGUN space it is prompting to share his previous works, with one in particular that he shared through describing in an artist talk he gave at the University of Southern Queensland on his second day with us.

The work from 2010 describes a project he installed at The Palais-Royal, with its famous arcades, is a historical place full of signs and references. For two centuries, it was the most fashionable and visited place in France and even Europe – the true core of Parisian political and social intrigues. Its popular cafés were patronized by philosophers, writers, politicians, revolutionaries as well as gamblers, whores, performing freaks and criminals of all kinds. http://dombis.com/works/textefiles/ While the work has many underlying connotations and undertones, he mentioned that one spectator in particular took the time to  move along the floor installation and read every story held within the 252 metre text based work. A beautiful story. Check it out
