David Deroo - One Equals Infinity

One Equals Infinity, solo show of David Deroo Opening reception : May 22nd, 2014 from 6pm in presence of the artist Exhibition from May 23rd to July 19th, 2014 David Deroo draws inspiration from different environments throughout his journeys, notably metropolises such as New York, Bombay or Sydney. His architectural background undeniably influences his work. The analysis and the structure of major cities are in fact the base of his process. "One Equals Infinity" aims to raise consciousness that the representation of a place is more than a simple image. The world itself is an accumulation of individualities which creates a unity. The reinterpretation of town plans with the use of phone books symbolizes this equation. Colours, light and texture of the works create individuality in a world where the normalization and the standardization are omnipresent. The titles of the works are the geographic coordinates of the described places.
