Let The Lonely Shells Dream - multimedia art exhibition

On 16 November 2019, RAW Streetphoto Gallery is opening a new duo exhibition by the French artists Youri Cayron and Romain Rivalan. The exhibition, titled 'Let The Lonely Shells Dream' shows the effects of aggressive urbanisation.

Let The Lonely Shells Dream

Over the last few years, the artists have spent their time and effort to explore, study and capture the many facets of how architecture changes the space around humans. Unfortunately, construction has moved from a basic need to build shelters to a destructive transformation of space. This destruction is accompanied by a creeping need to dominate, occupy and wipe out.
In the exhibition, the artists confront the reality of their situation. Youri Cayron and Romain Rivalan employ a combination of video, photography and music in order to render a fully immersive experience of what they have experienced around the world.
In order to best render the feelings, thoughts, and questions that the artists witnessed in person, RAW Streetphoto Gallery will present an installation which alters the perception of space inside the gallery.
The exhibition is open from 16 November, 2019 until 21 December, 2019. The artists themselves, Youri Cayron and Romain Rivalan will both be present at the opening on 16 november.
