CEG is excited to launch our Fall season featuring the work of Floriane de Lassée and her series How Much Can You Carry?.
Join us for the opening reception:
Friday, September 11th
5:00 – 8:00 pm.
Floriane de Lassée was born in Paris, France in 1977, and still resides close to the city. Her work has been featured in numerous one-person and group shows throughout Europe. The exhibition at CEG marks her first solo show in the United States!
The series How Much Can You Carry? is based on Floriane‘s fascination for the long lines of walkers, carrying diverse and bulky objects all along African roads. Started in 2012 in Ethiopia, and still on-going, this series spread out to 4 continents, covering around 15 regions to this day, within 7 countries (Ethiopia, Rwanda, Nepal, India, Japan, Indonesia, Bolivia, Brazil), and more to come.
See more work by Floriane de Lassée on our website or in her recent monograph, How Much Can you Carry? (Editions Filigranes, 2014).
