La Louvre - Paris

Musée d´Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, France

"Gelitin took over an entire floor of the museum. They filled the space that the museum gave them with more than 3,000 artworks, from big installations, to small pieces, exhibited from the floor to ceiling.
Broken walls, toilets, photographs of men half naked, piles of chairs, pipes, stuffed animals, real birds — this is the world of Gelitin. A whole room is filled with paintings made with modeling clay, a re-visitation of masterpieces referencing Paris: La Joconde (Leonardo da Vinci), etc.
A large band of artistic friends took part in the creation of some works. After being overwhelmed by the vision of all these works (paintings, sculptures, installation, drawings k nitting works, photos) I started to detect the smell of caramel and cheese, which were used to make some of the works on display. Cheese, like caramel, was coated on to a sculpture: the smell was very strong as the room was getting warmer and full of visitors.
The world of Gelitin could be defined as an enormous extravagant chaotic and proliferating universe. It is difficult to describe the work with a few adjectives. I am very enthusiastic with this exhibition and its dynamic, colorful, unpredictable and unique in its style." (Emmanuel Perrotin)
