Post Digital Monsters, Paris
La Gaite Lyrique – Paris, France
In 2011 Pictoplasma was invited by prestigious La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris to curate a vast exhibition on the topic of contemporary character culture. “Post Digital Monster” presented a focussed selection of international artists who succesfully transformed their characters from digital to analogue, re-discovering such slow media as bronze, wool, clay, wood, rubber and different methods of drawing and painting. This ‘post-digital’ strategy was carefully staged as an artistic quest for a state of permanence beyond the fleeting, flickering moment when the digital ‘monsters’ appear on our computer screens.
