On the surface, it appears that no other artist is fucking around with art history quite like Madsaki. The Tokyo-based artist’s most recent bodies of work have been reinterpretations of some of the most iconic works in art history, the pieces of art we are told are important, appear in every history book and become part of our collective visual language in the West. But Madsaki’s newest solo show, French Fries with Mayo, on view at Perrotin in Paris through September 22, speak to a larger conversation of the artist’s career of being born in Japan, having grown up in suburban New Jersey and return back to adulthood in Japan.
