Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre: The Ruins of Detroit
Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre: The Ruins of Detroit at Edwynn Houk Gallery. "...Detroit, Michigan, has become a symbol a deindustrialization, where a former industrial capital for the majority of the twentieth century has suffered an unprecedented rapid decline. Its civic halls, schools, train stations, working-class homes, and hotels have been crumbling over the past 50 years, as the manufacturing that peopled and financed the city halted. Seeing ruins as 'visible symbols and landmarks of our societies and their changes, small pieces of history in suspension,' Marchand and Meffre set out to fully document over a five year period the city center’s disintegration."
