Grotesque, decadent and sublime: Gareth Pugh and Paulina Otylie Surys collaboration unveiled at the NUE galerie

 

To celebrate the opening of their new space in the 10th arrondissement, the NUE galerie has invited Paulina Otylie Surys to show 20 previously unseen photographs featuring the private collection of fashion designer Gareth Pugh.

The NUE galerie launches its new Parisian space with the provocative aesthetic of artist Paulina Otylie Surys.

Twenty silver halide photographs – some of which have been reconstructed in 3D – all evoking the Victorian era (if Queen Vic had been a fetishist punk) are on show. Once a classical painter, the Polish photographer reworks the negatives with ink on dry dyes to create gothic compositions of a deeply dramatic nature.

Also a huge fan of textile arts, Surys gained access, especially for this exhibition, to designer Gareth Pugh’s private collection of clothing. Resolutely avant-garde, the designer’s dark and utterly modern world exacerbates the photographs, granting them a most surrealist quality.

 

Enigmatic, grotesque, supernatural, luxurious, decadent, sensual… In short, sublime.
