Expo on the 7th: Paintings by Jean-Philippe Paumier

Art & Cult

We’ve got another exhibition on our 7th and 8th floor. No photography for once, this time you can see two projects painted by French artist Jean-Philippe Paumier. ‘Déjà vu’ and ‘Sen no Sen’.

In these exposition Jean-Philippe showcases two of his projects that made in his studio in Broedplaats in the back wing of Volkshotel. With ‘Déjà vu’, he painted cliché and iconic objects from American pop culture with acrylic paint. His work proposes to examine objects at another level, breaking down the object’s obviousness and allow the viewer to refresh his or her look. Jean-Philippe was inspired by the clichés in American films, images he became obsessed with while watching many classic movies and their almost mythological imagery.

With ‘Sen no Sen’, he intended to play with the symbols of Japanese pop culture with acrylic paint. Sen no Sen is a concept of Japanese martial arts in which a combatant takes the initiative in a fight after the opponent has already started an attack. A sort of action-reaction. Stare at his work long enough and you might start recognizing more and more obvious references…  

See his work in the hallway of our 7th floor and in the stairway to the 8th floor, from January 14th.
