JR solo show – Galerie Perrotin in Paris

November 15th, 2011 | By | No Comments »

Encrages (French “inking,” according to Google), is JR‘s latest solo show, and it looks to be a significant one. Encrages will take place at Galerie Perrotin, a top-tier gallery in Paris who have also worked with Kaws and Ivan Argote. The show opens this Saturday at 7pm, and runs through January 7th. Arrested Motion have done a studio visit with JR in anticipation of the show.

It’s great to see continued success for JR, but with every step further up the art-world ladder, more questions are of course raised as to the inherent imbalance between the subjects of his photographs and those who buy his art.
