Gallery Libby Sellers is showing a series of hand woven carpet designs by the French art and design duo M/M (Paris). Each in an edition of 12 +2 APs, the four carpets act like a condensed catalogue – or Carpetalogue – for M/M’s practice.
Michaël Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak originally established M/M (Paris) as a graphic design studio in 1992. Their close associations with the music, fashion and art worlds have led to their becoming one of the most distinctive and acclaimed creative voices of their generation, within graphic design and beyond. Their longstanding creative clients and collaborators include fashion designers Yohji Yamamoto, Givenchy and Balenciaga; musicians such as Björk, Madonna, The Micronauts and Kanye West; and artists including Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Sarah Morris, and Philippe Parreno + Pierre Huyghe, with whom they also designed the Etienne Marcel Café in Paris in 2001. M/M’s work is held in the public collections of Tate Modern in London, the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris.
The gallery is also hosting a special M/M (Paris) pop-up shop stocking a curated selection of their other works, including their new book, M to M of M/M (Paris), written by Emily King, designed by Graphic Thought Facility, with a foreword by Hans Ulrich Obrist and published by Thames & Hudson. We are one of the few stockists of this book right now, so best place your orders early.
