Fertile Lands: Grounds of Experimentation
Exhibition Fertile Lands at Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard in Paris investigates the space of freedom and experimentation artists create for themselves. Until 5 March 2016.
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.
