Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard in Paris presents Fertile Lands, and exhibition that reflects on the freedom of the artist. Fertile Lands focuses on artists’ ability to create a ground for experimentation that is still left open for outside forces.

The exhibition, curated by Alexandra Fau, refers to prior conditions in order to think the unthinkable. The works presented at the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard are the reflection of a moving thought process that oscillates between two poles of experience – seeing and doing.

“Fertile Lands dares to talk about the creative intimacy, spirituality, artistic and aesthetic adventure that, in the 1960s, enabled the emergence of projects that were outside-of-the-box in terms of their relationship to time, space and experimentation.,” says Alexandra Fau in her exhibition statement. “Through its confrontation with territory, a work of art becomes imbued with its volcanic force, its unstable and transitory character.”

The exhibition presents works from artists Lara Almarcegui, Rosa Barba, Sophie Bonnet-Pourpet, Tacita Dean, Nicolas Floc’h, Cyprien Gaillard, Vincent Lamouroux, Seth Price, Samir  Ramdani, Michael Riedel, Elodie Seguin and Pieter Van der Schaaf.

Exhibition Fertile Lands at Fondation d’entreprise Ricard in Paris, France, from 26 January–5 March 2016.

Breathing Heart is an installation by German multimedia artist Johanna Keimeyer that asks visitors to look inside themselves, literally. An inflated structure is matched by the sensorial qualities of light, sound, scent, and rhythm for full scenographic effect. First mounted during Art Basel, the project – captured in film – travels to New York this month.

Last weekend, Robert Wilson welcomed over 1,200 guests to the 24th Annual Watermill Center Summer Benefit, raising funds for the institution’s year-round programming. The event brought the creative and philanthropic worlds together for a night of performances, installations; an auction; dinner and dancing. Aptly, this year’s edition had a strong political focus.
