Le concept de cette nouvelle expérience, « Songes Métalliques », est de transformer supports et visions à travers une série de photographies qui, au final, s’éloigne des perceptions que l’on peut avoir de cette discipline. Cette démarche s’appuie sur un mélange de recherches graphiques distinctes où le métal, les jeux de miroirs et la lumière constituent certains des points d’appui de cette exposition.

Jouer avec des éléments difficiles à appréhender, faits de multiples facettes et de différentes matières donnent accès à d’autres superpositions d’images. A cet effet, Rith Banney, n’hésite pas à bricoler, recadrer, recouper, coller, décoller, dessiner, ….
Pour aller encore plus loin dans cet évènement, Rith Banney a fait appel à des artistes de divers horizons (écrivain, musicien, plasticien, danseur, .acteur, …) afin de proposer une clé de lecture ou une interprétation personnelle sur une oeuvre.

Cette exposition accueillera ainsi des textes inédits écrits par : Pierre Henry (Paris / FR), Lydia Lunch (New-York / USA), Tod Ashley (Firewater – Kolkata / INDE), Black Sifichi (New-York / USA – ECOSSE), Scratchy (London / UK), Pierre Tellier (Paris / FR), Caroline Duris (Paris / FR), Rosko John (Londres / UK), Damny (La Phaze – Nantes / FR), Mat Firehair (Washington Dead Cats – Paris / FR), Julia Kent (New-York / USA), Ori Kaplan (Balkan Beat Box – New-York / USA , Tel Aviv / ISRAEL) , François Bergeron (Paris / FR), Laetitia Dremeau (Paris / FR), Emrick Briand (Paris / FR), et bien d’autres…

The concept of this new experience, « Songes Metalliques », is to transform mediums and views throught a series of photographies which ends up by tearing apart perceptions that we may have of this discipline. This reasoning is enforced by a mix of distinct graphic research in which iron, mirror games and lights constitute some of the roots of this exhibition.

Playing with multifaced elements, hard to grasp and made of different materials, lead to other superimpositions of images. For this, Rith Banney doesn’t hesitate to fix; reframe, recut, stick, restick, or to draw… To go even further in this event, Rith Banney has called on artists from varied backgrounds (writers, musicians, plastic artists, dancers, actors…) in order to offer a lecture clue or a personal interpretation of an artwork.

This exhibition will contain brand new texts written by Pierre Henry (Paris / FR), Lydia Lunch (New-York / USA), Tod Ashley (Firewater – Kolkata / INDIA), Black Sifichi (New-York / USA – ECOSSE), Scratchy (London / UK), Pierre Tellier (Paris / FR), Caroline Duris (Paris / FR), Rosko John (Londres / UK), Damny (La Phaze – Nantes / FR), Mat Firehair (Washington Dead Cats – Paris / FR), Julia Kent (New-York / USA), Ori Kaplan (Balkan Beat Box – New-York / USA , Tel Aviv / ISRAEL) , François Bergeron (Paris / FR), Laetitia Dremeau (Paris / FR), Emrick Briand (Paris / FR), and many more…

I believe that the true muses of the fashion industry have a more intense fire burning behind their eyes- for me this fire has been a product of simultaneous experiences withing the industry in LA and in the intensely academic environment that is UCLA. As I graduate in June, I will be free to travel the world with modeling, and things are looking good so far! I hope to extend my other faculties into the fashion and beauty world even after my technical “model expiration date” has been reached, and plan to return to business school for an MBA. I love maintaining an insane schedule and meeting some of the most eccentric and wonderful people in the business world through modeling!
