For his first solo project in France, Anthony Gross presents a
rotating exhibition of
4 works. After two weeks the first 2 films and animations are
replaced with new pieces using the exact same installation.
The films and animations all examine slippages of identity versus
appearance. The works investigate this light heartedly and from
different angles, with figures from films presented alongside
fictional animated characters and objects.
The overall mood is of an experiment, a scientific inquiry where the
sense of material and physical self is fractured and multiplied over
