(Cinet)- An installation exhibition featuring posters and wacky objects by two Swiss artists, including Plonk &Replonk, took place at French Cultural Centre L’Espace, 24 Trang Tien street, Hanoi on March 24th on the occasion of International Francophonie Day.
 
Plonk and Replonk group was established in 1995 by artist brothers Hubert Froidevaux and Jacques Froidevaux. They are popular in Switzerland and known for their absurd humour and wicked wit, which borders on the sarcastic and mischievous.

By turning ordinary objects, habits and events upside down and inside out, Plonk and Replonk ask people to see reality in other ways.

The photos, measuring 420cm by 600cm, are created from those owned by the National Postal Museum of France, the Museum of Lyon History and private collections.

Under each photo, the artists write both critical and lighthearted captions that deal with globally relevant topics such as environment, globalisation, education and consumerism.

Additionally, the exhibition themed “Smile! Temporary Art” is set to take place at Manzi Art Space, 14 Pham Huy Ich Street from March 26-April 26.

The exhibition will run untill April 12
