until 28.09. | #1494ARTatBerlin | The gallery JeanMichelBerlin presents from 7th September 2017 for the first time the erotic images of the French photographer Antoine Poupel. The series “Crazy Inside” invites you to a photographic journey in front of and behind the scenes of the famous cabaret “Crazy Horse” in Paris.
Antoine Poupel, born 1956 in Le Havre (France), studied art and graduated 1982 with the title DNSEP “Diplôme national supérieur d’expression plastique option design”. Further studies at the Centre National des Arts Plastiques, Paris (France) followed, which he successfully finished in 1990.
His main attention has always been on photography and he won several awards with his photographs. They are found in private and public collections in France and Japan. He also had solo exhibitions in France, Holland, Japan, Russia and in the USA.
In 1990, Antoine Poupel met Alain Bernardin, the founder of the world-famous Parisian cabaret “Crazy Horse”. Impressed by the artist’s empathy, Alain Bernardin opened the doors of his brilliant cabaret, and above all that of the holy place behind the scenes, where the dancers prepare themselves. He was the only man who had access to the back stage area. The series of photographs “Crazy Inside” invites you to
a photographic journey in front of and behind the scenes of Crazy Horse Paris.
Situations are held on photographically during the rehearsals, the show and in the backstage area. The viewer gets an intimate impression of the world of the dancers.
The photos can also be seen in several books about Crazy Horse Paris, among others in“Crazy Inside”(French), paperback – 2nd November 2011, by Antoine Poupel and Corinne Decottignies”.
