CULT OF THE BODY •  Hannibal Volkoff : Cult of the Body - must go see show in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris

The Hors-Champs Gallery presents work by young photographer Hannibal Volkoff until the 4th of September 2012.

In keeping with the styles of Larry Clark, Gus Van Sant and Nan Goldin, Hannibal presents his contemporaries captured in their time. Sex, parties, drugs. The old troublesome trio. Lived exhibitionism is the new moment. Welcome to the Generation Gap.

Forget seeing – being seen is all that counts. All the world is a stage, body parts are simply body parts, shame is for newbies … images like snap shots from a dangerous dream. Go see. Now.

The Hors-Champs Gallery is located on Rue de Thorigny 13 in the 3rd Arrondissement of Paris. It presents contemporary photography and is currently celebrating its one year anniversary, which founders Bernard Pegeon (Gallerist) and Hannibal Volkoff (AD) are naturally very pleased about.

Bio: born in 1986 in Nantes, Hannibal Volkoff lives and works in Paris. After having studied applied arts at the Pivaut School, later cinema, directing and assistant directing, Volkoff took up photography. His work was first exhibited in 2010 around France and in Paris at such locations as the Galerie Le Simoun, Espace Pierre Cardin, or alongside Gaspard Yurkievich. He is also Artistic Director of the Galerie Hors-Champs (75003) that opened in 2011.
