To celebrate their highly regarded and rare collaboration with sportswear giant Nike, Pigalle and Stéphane Ashpool created an exhibition to showcase various concepts centered around basketball. This was a tale of time passing seen through the eyes of a ‘basketball child’. ‘TIME OUT’ touches on the moods, materials, and meanings that are universal and specific to basketball, both on and off the court.
From the locker room to the playground, and from the playground to the street, this game celebrates all of life’s colours from around the world. The 11 artists invited here (Ward Roberts, Kent Skare, Nelvin Aladag, Ill Studio, John Ashpool Sr, Pennacchio Argentato, Evan Robarts, Michaël Camellini, Paul Hamy, Stéphane Ashpool, Brice Torres) have each, in their own way, communicated the poetry of basketball.
