Art Paris at the Grand Palais

From September 10 to 13, 2020

It is easy to forget the digital revolution around us with this exhibition by three artists in search of our origins and what defines us: Christine Mathieu, Fabien de Chavanes and Bertrand Robert.

 

Christine Mathieu through women in history. The result of hours spent poring over collections from various national museums in France, her photographs feature intricate needle lace, the humble labour of women whose names are lost to history.

 

 

Fabien de Chavanes through the history of mankind, explores how Man became a sign and unit of time – how sign and meaning, the definer and the defined, the person and the universe, inform each other.

 

Bertrand Robert through the intimacy of identity, shows how we struggle to communicate and define ourselves beyond our boundaries in an era of overcommunication.
