Jardins

March 15, 2017 - June 24, 2017
Galeries nationales du Grand Palais, 3 avenue du Général Eisenhower
Paris, 75008 France

Jardins is a modest attempt to echo the words of Foucault, often quoted but no less important for that: «The garden is the smallest part of the world and the whole world at the same time.» The subject has been examined using its essential definition: an enclosure, a delimited area within a territory, an orchestrated area that is a window to the world. Presented at the Galeries nationales du Grand Palais, this multidisciplinary assembly of painting, sculptures, photographs, drawings, films…

Paris, 75004 France

Walker Evans (1903-1975) was one of the most important of twentieth-century American photographers. His photographs of the Depression years of the 1930s, his assignments for Fortune magazine in the 1940s and 1950s, and his “documentary style” influenced generations of photographers and artists. His attention to everyday details and the commonplace urban scene did much to define the visual image of 20th-century American culture. Some of his photographs have become iconic. Conceived as a retrospective of Evans’s work as a whole,…

They are monsters stiffened in rigor mortis. That is the colossally scaled sculptures, such as a 28 meter whale of almost unimaginable mass sited in a forest in Patagonia, for which the Argentinian artist Adrián Villar Rojas (*1980, Rosario, Argentina) has become well- known. Leaves falling from trees in the harsh autumn weather have transformed the sculpture into a soft russet color. The scarred aquatic fugitive lying in an abandoned forest creates a shocking impression, its loss of orientation and…
