Pierre and Gilles double je at Jeu de Paume

The Jeu de Paume is an ideal lunch break gallery, The lightness of the structure and the upbeat exhibitions is always a pleasure to see. Especially, Pierre and Gilles, dynamic duo of French photographers that fit together better than Batman and Robin.

Super Kitch, vibrant colourful, almost plastic quality of their photos. Their use of icons and subjects or celebrities as icons, Pierre and Gilles manage to create an extraordinary body of work on display in this retrospective.

Partners in work and in life, they pair each portrait with a customized frame. Even the staircases in the building were lined with handpainted icons of the portraits featured in the exhibition.
