Recommends: Fetishistic Scopophilia

We've so far unsuccessfully attempted to collaborate with the Parisian graphics/art studio Ill-Studio on many occasions. As heart-breaking as it might be that we can't seem to get it together, it's a pleasure to sit back and admire their work as fans. Their current exhibition, Fetishistic Scopophilia at the 12Mail Gallery in Paris is the perfect introduction to where their heads are at.

Graphics, photography, video, sculpture and found objects are all deployed, taking a perverse array of contemporary pop culture touchstones as subject matter to establish a map of the three Ill-Studio frères' thought process. A flag printed to resemble someone's messy working desktop, palm trees planted in protein powder, a pair of ceramique Air Max 95's, iconic brand brandings, a packet of CD-R's and a yoga mat I'm still not sure was part of the exhibition or the property of an agile art lover, there is something indeed devilish in their details. Fetishism for internet and youth culture, given Ill-Studio's elegant, irreverent French touch, you can understand why we highly recommend.
