Les cendres du naufrage
[ Description ]Poster and communication media for the exhibition “Les cendres du naufrage” by the English artist Dominique White at the art center Triangle-Astérides in Marseille. The exhibition features fictional relics made from raw materials and salvaged objects, symbolizing a black population condemned to a perpetual migration and to vanish at sea. The communication materials for this event draw inspiration from the exhibition’s title through its typographic treatment. The title itself serves as an organic and plastic vestige of a lost world, reflecting the exhibition’s dual nature. Combining natural elements that are diametrically opposed, it captures the duality inherent in the tragic story that Dominique White narrates. Despite its subject matter, the works presented in the exhibition are marked by finesse, which is also reflected in the typographic treatment. The result is a hauntingly visual language that captures the essence of this thought-provoking exhibition.
