Public Domaine, Skateboard Culture at La Gaîté Lyrique
Be prepared for this: Public Domaine (with an “e”) is probably the biggest skart (hum… skate + art) show ever produced. It gathers skate demos and views on skate culture mixing new creations, retrospectives and facilities in the lyrical theater of the Gaîté lyrique in Paris.

Public Domain, without the "e" is the name of one of the videos produced by Stacy Peralta in the late 1980s that revolutionized the aesthetics and images of skateboarding.

Public Domaine, with an "e" is a tribute to a bouquet of art forms that has elected a board and four wheels as a medium of expression, to regain the public domain and reinterpret it to suit his curls on concrete. Because skateboarding is much more than a sport, an activity,

a hobby or a way to travel, over the years the skateboarding culture has been built with a changing and rich aesthetic, mingling all its expression forms as far as music, design, paintings, architecture, photography artists, DJs…

Under the direction of Jérôme Delormas and with the help of Vincent Carry , Pedro Winter , Morgan Bouvant Yogi Proctor, Sébastien Carayol and Benoit Rousseau, the basement of the Gaîté lyrique has been redeveloped into a bunker of rebellion around two themes: a dip in the pulse of the underground skate culture and the provocative yet attracting board designs.

No Skateboarding is a photography book putting together a gallery of
portraits of the 70 most influential skaters in the history of the sport.
But instead of having action shots of the riders’ feats, it pays tribute to
them by making portraits of the men behind the sometimes legendary
tricks they once pulled.
The skartists presented have all emerged from the skateboard environment and express themselves through photography, video, contemporary art or graffiti. With Agent Provocateurs, it is more than 50 boards selected by Seb Carayol that are hooked to the neutral walls of the Gaîté lyrique. All boards have intriguing and controversial issues that only someone like Seb is able to decrypt and all. Seb Carayol is writing for SkateBoarder and has his own blog.

The skart expo will include

- A selection of artists by Sade Coy: Neck Face, Yogi Proctor, Adam Wallacavage, Donny Miller, Deanna Templeton, Cleon Peterson, Michael Burnett, Mike O'Meally and other surprises
- A video installation by Fred Mortagne
- A collaboration between Benjamin Deberdt exclusive photographic and Mark Gonzales
- A selection of videos Matthias Fennetaux William Strobeck, Ludovic Azémar, Ty Evans, Don Brown and Claude Jutra
- "Agents provocateurs" with skateboards designed by Alyasha Moore, Andy Jenkins, Ben Horton, Ed Templeton, Eli Morgan Gesner, Fos, Marc McKee, Mike Hill, Moishe Brennan, Michael Sieben, Sean Cliver, Todd Francis, Winston Tseng Johnny "Mojo" Munnerlyn, Colin Price and Donny Miller.

Benjamin Chasselon will be part of the Public Domaine exhibition at la
Gaîté Lyrique in Paris with a fantastic project called
"My dad's favorite covers", which is basically a tribute to the underground
skateboard culture, reproducing big formats covers from various
skateboard magazines. The painting which is on the invite is truly
going to kill your eye. A preview of his work will be exposed
at Colette on June 13th.
Public Domaine reflects the general concept of the exhibition and brings together the skate culture, distorting mirror and alternative way of reinterpreting the world. How a conterculture creates its own artistic language and survey the world. As remixed into a giant sampler, sculptors, graphic artists, videographers, animators and musicians live on two floors. Between futuristic vision and back to the future, skateboarding is showcased through distorted mirrors unfolding before our eyes.

With works by The Art Dump (Eric Anthony, Hershel Baltrotsky, Jeremy Carnahan, Michael Coleman, Andy Jenkins, Christian Morin, Andy Mueller, Evan Hecox & Chris Waycott), ILL Studio, Natas Kaupas, Fred Mortagne, Mike Manzoor, DVNO Rémi Brun, Sade Coy, Cédric Viollet and Edouard Le Scouarnec.

Nike SB will also present The Chosen, a participatory installation in the exhibition.

Welcome Home, where how skateboarding has infiltrated our homes. Better than the street, better than the ramp, skating is the home's allegorically found skateboarding to never be forgotten, infiltrate the most intimate daily.

Pierre-Andre Sénizergues, former world champion skateboarders (and the boss of Etnies), asked several creative minds who were part of the history of Etnies and asked them to imagine what skateboarding could become in 25 years. In this space Pierre-Andre Sénizergues presents his skatebable house… It’s actually not a joke since Pierre-Andre has a secret place in the Malibu hills where the skateable house has been (or was) constructed… The PAS House was designed by Gil Le Bon Delapointe with the assistance of the architect Francois Perrin. The PAS House is accompanied by "Pool Tables" from Lance Mountain and a series of paintings by Benjamin Chasselon - "My dad's favorite covers".

Then, there is a space entirely dedicated to skart photography. This is the moment between the past and the future of skate photography, the transition between old and new media to show off.

Will those be some of the 50 boards selected by Seb Carayol
with intriguing or controversial issues? You bet!
On the one hand, Thrasher magazine, or rather the American bible of skateboarding, celebrates 30 years through images "skate and destroy". The retrospective "Skate and Destroy" features photographs of legendary artists like Bryce Kanights, Mofo, Kevin Thatcher, Luke Ogden, Rhino, Michael Burnett, Patrick O'Dell, Ed Templeton, Jerry Hsu, David Broach, Gabe Morford ...

On the other hand, there are 15 different sizes of flat screens to create a portfolio in motion where each artist broadcast his views of skateboarding: Jon Mehring, Cédric Viollet, Brian Gaberman Taro Hirano, Sem Rubio, Dan Boulton, Benjamin Deberdt, Patrick O'Dell, Deel, Eric Anthony, Travis Dove, Rich Gilligan, Bertrand Trichet Buzzy Sullivan, Sergej Vutuc Fred Mortagne, Gus Duarte, Giovanni Reda, Davy Van Laere, Atiba Jefferson, Sam Ashley ..

A number of special events are planned throughout the stay of the Public Domaine exhibition (which runs until Sunday, August 7), from concerts and skate demos to parties and such sponsored by Thrasher Magazine, Etnies, Nike SB, Girl Skateboards and more.

La Gaîté Lyrique, Public Domaine from June 18 to 9 August
