"Retour à Bayeux" Stephan Goldrajch's solo show at Le Radar in Bayeux, France
Le Radar – Espace d’art actuel dedicates a solo exhibition Retour à Bayeux to Stephan Goldrajch, on view from June 10 to September 17, 2023.
First presented in our gallery in Paris, the series this new exhibition presents Stephan Goldrajch’s tapestries and brings them to life in Bayeux. Inspired by the Bayeux tapestry that tells the story of the William the Conqueror’s conquest of England in a XI century, a mixture of reality and fantasy, Stephan Goldrajch’s works rewrite history to change its focus. They highlight what had been relegated to the margins and give a central place to the small details on the edges of the tapestry (animals, sometimes human beings). By reincarnating them in crocheted silhouettes, the paintings interpret the story of the past and give it an inclusive twist.
