June 28th www.leclaireur.com

Cristina Grajales Gallery is pleased to announce Tabor & Villalobos’s upcoming exhibitions in Paris at the fashion and design institution, L’Eclaireur. Their work will be featured in two L’Eclaireur’s locations; the Rue Hérold exhibition will open June 28th – September 2013, and from September-October 2013, the exhibition will be showcased at L’Eclaireur’s brand new location, “Neuf-trois”.

The installations at L’Eclaireur will feature sculptures and photographs from Tabor & Villalobos’ provocatively enigmatic HIC et NUNC series of work, as well as a selection of Tabor & Villalobos’ single commission jewelry pieces. Filled with cardboard skeletons, drawings resembling museum specimens and photographs taken from Transylvania to Paris, Hic et Nunc is an artificial museum of false preservation built within the gallery walls, an imaginary ossuary in resin and cardboard.

Hic et Nunc began with Villalobos and Tabor’s visits to the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris and the photographs they shot in the Gallery of Paleontology over several years. The work explores the changing relationships we have with the world between our urban centers and our interventions in the landscapes surrounding us. Hic et Nunc engages with the museum space as a symbol of our relationship with the “natural world”. It questions how ideas of preservation and presentation in museums shape our understanding of ourselves and our place in the world around us.
