Leo ORTA: Êtres Vivants

11 March - 29 April 2023 Paris / Front space

Christophe Gaillard Gallery is proud to present the first solo exhibition "Êtres Vivants" by the young artist Leo Orta in Paris and at the gallery.


Leo Orta examines form in the context of design and utility. Founded in 2015, the OrtaMiklos duo explores furniture as “functional art”. Existing themes, such as recycling and reuse are shifting the focus from simple use to transformation and imagination. This is the story Leo Orta wishes to tell in his personal practice. Moving away from utility and function, or at least questioning their limitations, are the main lines of this work in terms of the form of sculptures and their materials.
