Gagosian – Bustes de Femmes
Scenography for Gagosian’s 10th anniversary exhibition called Bustes de Femmes.
India Mahdavi has carefully planned how best to complement the art in this setting. « It’s funny how color in a gallery brings it to the level of a museum.The color magnifies everything. » The colors are indeed present throughout, and although not matching the works, they complement them, even in a tone that might seem contradictory. Mahdavi explains, “Usually the way I use color is to create volumes. In this instance, I used color as a backdrop. »
