Alexis Dahan: INTRUDER at Patrick Parrish, New York

Alexis Dahan: INTRUDER
Opening Reception: October 3, 6-8 PM
50 Lispenard Street, New York

Patrick Parrish Gallery is pleased to present Intruder, an exhibition of lighting designed by French artist Alexis Dahan. This project follows a public intervention dating back to when Dahan removed a cobblestone from a New York street and exchanged it with one extracted from Paris.


Patrick Parrish Gallery, New York, Alexis Dahan,

Each lamp is encased in a cement cast of the original cobblestone, accompanied by casts from the opposite cities’ cobble. As a result, the displaced fragments of two real paved roads are given a new purpose as functioning lamps.


«Welcoming the other inside the family could be a way of understanding the action of transforming urban elements into interior furnitures.

Making a cobblestone lamp is a way to activate this notion of intrusion by creating interior familiarity with an object that necessarily belongs to the outside.»

– Alexis Dahan
