Sean Kelly Gallery Announces Laurent Grasso's 'Élysée' | May 5 - June 17, 2017
Sean Kelly is delighted to present Élysée, a new film by Laurent Grasso. This will be the first time the work will be shown in the US. The opening reception will take place on Friday, May 5 from 6-8 pm. The artist will be present.
In Élysée, Grasso creates an intimate and profoundly elegant portrait of power through a sweeping visual exploration of the Salon Doré (or Golden Room), the office of the President of the French Republic at the Élysée Palace in Paris. Grasso was invited to create the work by the Archives Nationales for the exhibition Le Secret de l'Etat (The Secret of the State) at the Hôtel de Soubise in Paris and was the first artist to receive special authorization to film inside this historic and enigmatic room, where the future of the nation is decided.
