les presses du réel
Vidya Gastaldon -
First monograph.
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 Madeleine Schuppli.
