The Observatory

Group Show
July 6 - December 17, 2022
Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel

DANAE.IO is pleased to present The Observatory by Thomas Paquet in collaboration with Bigaignon Gallery and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.

The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is exhibiting The Observatory by Thomas Paquet as part of the group show, NFT, One of a Kinds, curated by Maya Vinitsky with Yonni Avidan (Associate curator).

Thomas Paquet presents the first algorithmic digital artwork that evolves in real time, while being geolocated. One of the peculiarities of this artwork is its infinite nature: the program updates the positions of the moon and the sun in real time and generates a unique evolving color gradient.

Born in 1979
Lives and works in Paris, France
Thomas Paquet, represented by gallery Bigaignon, explores time's nature, uninterrupted flow, and dynamic movement. His photography focuses on light, space, and time, offering viewers a sensitive experience of the world. Through experimentation, he employs various techniques like silver gelatin films and alternative processes such as instant films and wet collodion.

Based in Paris, France
Bigaignon is a photosensitive contemporary art gallery. With a strong international focus, the gallery supports and defends the unique vision of its artists, whether they be emerging, mid-career or established worldwide, in their quest to propose a new visual vocabulary, challenge the photographic medium and explore the full extent of its possibilities. As such, the gallery represents Catherine Balet, Renato D. Agostin, Harold Feinstein, Vittoria Gerardi, Ralph Gibson, Yannig Hedel, Fernando Marante, Rémi Noël and Thomas Paquet.The gallery offers its collectors and visitors a first-hand online experience with its Viewing Room which features unique, rare, and exclusive works, as well as special previews of forthcoming exhibitions.

Since its creation back in 2016, the gallery has built a curatorial program through which it invites once a year or so an artist it does not directly represent but who has an outstanding body of work that deserves to be brought to light, whether it be in a solo exhibition or group show. Located in the thriving Marais in Paris, France, the gallery’s magnificent space, its first-of-a-kind curated (book)store and with its open reserve offer a compelling experience to its visitors, book lovers and collectors. The gallery is a member of the CPGA (Comité Professionnel des Galeries d’Art), the French association for art galleries.
