About the exhibition:  Blowing Riccardo started with a mundane conversation about the traveling life of fashion collections on their many editorial tours. In this work, Marie Vic borrowed a handful of Givenchy garments from a Parisian fashion collector and took them on a trip, to an aircraft graveyard in the Mojave Desert, in California. There, she had them wander endlessly and float among retired carcasses. The result is a series of glowing images that take the viewer into an anthropomorphic and hypnotic experience – a conjuring act of mise-en-scène. The multi-channel video installation Blowing Riccardo is composed of nine looped films projected simultaneously throughout the space. The atmospheric experience is reinforced by a score made of sounds recorded in the desert mixed with an old tune.
