Call It What You Like

Call It What You Like Vidya Gastaldon - Call It What You Like
Artist's book (new drawings): an invitation on a journey into Vidya Gastaldon's psychedelic universe.
Initially associated with Jean-Michel Wicker, over the years Vidya Gastaldon (norn 1974 in Besançon, france, now lives and works in Geneva) has developed a universe immersed in a hippie and psychedelic aesthetic, in New Age, and in minimalist abstraction, as well as devalued practices such as sewing or DIY.
Through her series of drawings, her films, and her sculptures in wool and other “craft” materials, the artist deploys an aesthetic of "states" rather than of formal or theoretical references, where notions of pleasure and experience find a new force.
Edited by Vidya Gastaldon.
