An exclusive extract from Elysée

An exclusive extract from Elysée by Laurent Grasso

Purple TV presents an exclusive extract from artist Laurent Grasso’s brilliant new short film Elysée. For the film, Grasso gained unprecedented access to the office of the French President of the Republic to discuss a highly personal reflection on the aesthetics and representation of power. By delving into the arcane mysteries of the Elysée Palace’s Golden Room, his film sets out to bring to light the objects associated with the exercise of presidential functions. Elysée film is the first in a series that the artist intends to devote to loci of power. The original soundtrack of the film was made by Nicolas Godin.

See the world premiere of the film at Edouard Malingue Gallery Hong Kong on occasion of Art Basel Hong Kong until April 30th, 2016. The artist will also present the inaugural exhibition from April 28 to May 28, 2016 at Galerie Perrotin, Seoul.
