“La démocratie est Illusion” Cac Passerelle, Brest, France. 7th February 3rd may

For their first solo show in France, Goldschmied & Chiari (formerly known as Goldiechiari) focus on the similarities between the practices of illusionism and those of the intelligence service, both used in the representation of deception and to persuade and fascinate the viewer.
Through various media such as collage, photography, installations, video, as well as ethereal materials like sand, smoke, scenic devices and mirrors, Goldschmied & Chiari construct an imaginary set in which the secret operations during the Cold War are staged through sleight of hands and the materials used by the most famous illusionists in history.
