APPROCHE  09/11/17 - 12/11/17
Le Molière, 40 Rue de Richelieu, 75001 - Paris

Skin Memories presents the creations that Thomas Mailaender made at the Tanneries Roux in the framework of the first artist residency initiated by LVMH Métiers d’Art.

In continuing his research on the photographic medium and its formal possibilities, he experimented with applications of cyanotype, anthotype, and Van Dyke processes in traditional leather production. Using a wide selection of images gathered from varied sources, including photographs, clippings, advertisements, postcards, and negatives, the reproductions break down barriers between printing processes, surfaces, and materials, allowing for incongruous collisions and whimsical fantasies alike.


APPROCHE is a new photographic salon aiming to bridge the gap between contemporary art and photography.
