"Toile de Jouy: Les ReluqueurZ" (Toile de Jouy: The Oglers)

This wallpaper was originally created in 2004 as part of an installation also including a video projection and a black and white print of a nude or naked man. It is a contemporary interpretation of Toile de Jouy, an intensely decorative printing pattern dating from 18th century France, that traditionally depicted domestic, pastoral and sometimes political scenes. Here, a narrative of seduction and gallantry becomes the setting for a frivolous and silly meeting of the eyes.
