Pierre Paulin at Emily Harvey Foundation

From May 23 to May 26, Emily Harvey Foundation presents Rearranging My Wardrobe, Again, the first New York presentation of works by french artist Pierre Paulin.Pierre Paulin is currently in residency in New York with the support of Etant donnés program.

Rearranging My Wardrobe, Again is a montage of poetic transfers, a blurred atmosphere. The artist hides behind a system of apparitions, explorations in languages, and multiplicities of translations, articulated through poetry, film, books, and clothing.

For this exhibition, Paulin will present the film Morceaux choisis (2019), as well as a set of copies of his own clothing, and a white leather book containing four essays expanding on his theoretical formulations of “look.” Additionally, the book OO,UU (2018), which contains an updated version of his read-a-loud text Boom boom, run run—a poetic essay on the cultural history of the sneakers, written from the perspective of a Parisian consumer—will be read in a closing performance-lecture on Sunday, May 26, 6pm. 

Opening reception: Thursday, May 23, 6-8pm
Closing lecture-performance: Sunday, May 26, 6pm
