Stems Gallery is pleased to announce “Tout est Bleu”, an exhibition of new photographs and sculptures by the French artist Julien Boudet. Creating images out of medium format film cameras, Boudet’s practice investigates the crossings between consumerism; technology; culture, and media. By highlighting and recontextualizing luxury brands, his images lay the base for a body of work that focuses on elements from hip hop culture and consumerist dystopia.« Tout est Bleu » is Boudet’s first solo exhibition. A new series ispresented that were taken in Morocco and Dubai, open countries where traveling during the Covid-19 pandemic was not restricted. Boudet investigates the influence of Western consumerism on Mediterranean culture, in which several renowned icons from street culture are revisited and projected on distorted luxury cars. The duality between real and fake, counterfeit and authentic are recurring themes.
