Second episode : Marie Lund
16.11.2017 – 19h30
For this new episode of L’Homme aux cent yeux(revue), we welcome Danish artist Marie Lund. For the event at the plateau, her proposal is entitled Hip Height, a text she has written presenting a virtual tour of an exhibition she did in Mérida, state of Yucatán, Mexico, in 2016.
Through a reading of the text, Marie Lund leads us through the space whose outline and atmosphere takes progressively shape, objects materialize, and lines are drafted little by little.
Marie Lund (b.1976 Copenhagen) lives and works in London. Recent solo exhibitions include Legumes at Holstebro Kunstmuseum, Scout at Jose Garcia, mx, Merida, PIT at Croy Nielsen, Berlin, Flush at Badischer Kunstverein, and Drums, Museo Marino Marini.Her work has been featured in exhibitions at Palais de Tokyo, Paris, Tate Britain, London, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Extra City Antwerp, Kunstmuseum Krefeld, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Cologne Kunstverein, Kunsthalle Mulhousse, De Vleeshal, Middelburg, Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis, The Swiss Institute, New York, CCA Wattis San Francisco amongst others.
L’Homme aux cent yeux (revue)
The new “revue” (show) L’Homme aux cent yeux * – in a nod to its glorious ancestors of the 30s and to the spirit of the Music Hall – proposes an annual programme of live interventions, open to all kinds of artistic creation (acoustic, filmic, choreographic, etc.), by artists invited to occupy the exhibition spaces in two phases. The first (la revue) will consist in evening events during the ongoing exhibitions, with a performative play specially created by an artist for each occasion. The second (la grande revue) will take place once during the year, in between exhibitions, when the spaces are empty and awaiting the next installation. For this event – the acme of the “revue” – all the invited artists will gather and propose a follow-up to their first intervention.
These two forms of intervention will enable the invited artists to experiment with new pieces in different contexts and in direct relationship with the public.
* L’Homme aux cent yeux (revue) is a reference to Argus, the all-seeing giant in Greek mythology with a tragic – and beautiful – destiny.
