Rock the Casbah

Frieze, Fiac, Paris, Londres October 2009

Created for the occasion of the 54th Salon de Montrouge in 2009 before being exhibited at the FIAC by Gabrielle Maubrie, Théo Mercier’s series of Tapis violents brings about the improbable, if not sacrilegious encounter between a Persian carpet and punk ideology. Stamped with patches, nails and diverse reactionary, morbid or satanic ornaments, effigies of the mythical groups of the “no future” culture, these tapis violents propose a cynical and humoristic meditation.
