Sometimes, to truly express your ideas and feeling as an artist, you need more than one medium. A photograph may not be enough to capture the energy of a subject, a painting may not be realistic enough and a single quiet image might not spark enough memories. The new Factory of Idols exhibition at the Musée de la Musique looks to change this with a new show about some of the best artists and idols in the music industry.
The show brings together photo-paintings, video documents and audio files to capture the full essence of the subject. The works are a collaboration of the artistic duo Pierre and Gilles. Subjects captured in these photographic paintings include classic stars like Etienne Daho and Stromae to modern icons like Marilyn Manson and Madonna. The pieces are accompanied by album covers, songs and videos. Get lost in the music and art in the Pierre et Gilles exhibition until the 23rd of February 2020.
