Paparazzi - Mazaccio & Drowilal
To realise their photo collages and installations, artist duo Elise Mazaccio and Robert Drowilal draw from popular images of contemporary culture, intentionally torn from their usual context. By using diverse techniques, deliberately bright colours, and irony, the two French artists transform these images and question the conventional principles of artistic photography. ‘Paparazzi’ takes its subject matter from its namesake: stolen snapshots of celebrities. Juxtaposing heterogenous and often contradictory images and blurring the boundaries between natural and artificial, Mazaccio & Drowilal at once provoke and doom the viewer in an extraordinary artistic experiment.
