The exhibition “Gaugin the alchemist” (from 11 October 2017 to 22 January 2018) at the Grand Palais recounts the career of Paul Gaugin, explorer of the arts. The collection assembles paintings, drawings, etchings, sculptures, ceramics and other pieces that highlight the artist’s work and his creative process. The exhibition shows how Gauguin built his collection of works through the repetition of themes and recurring motifs while constantly pushing the limits of each medium, in his obsessive quest for all things primitive.
The audiovisual devices designed and produced for the exhibition allow the public to discover the artist’s techniques for creating, designing and copying, while also revealing the technical and artisanal aspects of his work.
Reciproque designed the audiovisual installations with Scénografiá, and produced videos on the artist’s painting, wood carving and ceramic techniques.
