From 1st to 17th february 017
TRIBE is an ambitious challenge launched by GAUTIER, who want to reunite their global tribe : the almost 5 million young people who are sleeping or have slept in a room featuring the French furniture manufacturer! With John Thackwray, a French photographer of South African origin, they have travelled the world meeting and photographing them.
The TRIBE BY GAUTIER exhibition is offering visitors the chance to discover their portrait, their universe, their day-to-day, their personality, their culture and their hopes through one single space: their bedroom.
GAUTIER wanted to share this one-of-a-kind journey through 16 countries with as wide an audience as possible through this exhibition and a dedicated website www.tribebygautier.com.
There are 26 portraits to discover in this exhibition, portraits without barriers between art and documentary, but also original accounts of our times, our world and the young generation, as John Thackwray notes: “These photos will become a precious resource for those who want to know how we lived.”
This unique concept, this colourful, positive and conscious piece of work examines what we are, what we want to show off and what we hide, but also addresses the variety of habitats and cultural differences that make up our planet.
