Memphis


Ettore Sottsass
An exhibition dedicated to italian design mouvement Memphis. Showed are beautiful and crazy furnitures & objects, along with photos & texts : a great occasion to witness the extravagance of the 80's, when good taste was old story and the desire to express one's creativity came first .

Here an extract of a powerful text from Etorre Sottsass (from Memphis, the New International Style, Electa, 1981) :
" The fact is that we are not afraid anymore, I'm talking about this fear of having or not having to represent something or someone, elites or dropouts, traditions or lies. We don't have this fear anymore, transmited by the past, nor that even more violent one sent by the future."

Galerie Azzedine Alaïa
From Nov. 5th to Dec. 4th, 11h-19h.
18 rue de la Verrerie - 75004 Paris
