Taroop & Glabel

Taroop & Glabel live and work in Paris. This (anonymous) collective was formed in Paris in 1990 and has been blaspheming whatever it deems fit and shooting down dogma and beliefs with its vinyl collages and disparate assemblages ever since. No-one is safe and not everyone is best pleased. Taroop & Glabel are not particularly subtle, hammering their message home like an advertising slogan, serving up a black mass re-written for TV. Their oeuvre crucifies Mickey Mouse (literally) and buries Charles Fourier’s social utopias. Idols fall and are smashed with fiendish laughter. The spectator is not spared either, depicted as a pig gorging itself on decorative scraps. Religion, politics and entertainment are all chewed up and spat out in the same manner.

Exhibited regularly at the Semiose Gallery in Paris, their works can be found in the collections of the Paris FNAC and the Lower Normandy, Bourgogne and Languedoc-Roussillon FRACs.

In 2015, the Maison des Arts of Malakoff organised an important solo exhibition of their work.
