Le Centre Pompidou invite, pour la première fois, les quatre finalistes du Prix Marcel Duchamp à exposer dans ses espaces : en 2016, Kader Attia, Yto Barrada, Ulla von Brandenburg et Barthélémy Toguo. Avec cette présentation collective, l’ADIAF et le Centre Pompidou donnent au prix Marcel Duchamp un nouvel élan. Cette formule permet aux artistes nommés d’exposer – parfois pour la première fois au Centre Pompidou et donne l’occasion au public le plus large de découvrir leur travail. Cette première exposition commune fait saillir les sujets et démarches partagés : regard porté sur l’actualité...

Barthélémy Toguo : Beating the virus!

“I’m creating an installation to celebrate the enormous research effort going into combatting two great scourges, two viruses currently threatening Africa and the world: AIDS and Ebola. I wanted to pay tribute to the scientists involved in it. First, I spent time at the Institut Pasteur research laboratories and at their sister organisation in Dakar, to meet the scientists and gain inspiration from the work they were doing. I’ve produced a group of eighteen very large porcelain vases decorated with drawings. For me they emblematically represent vessels for water – purifying and revivifying ...

Kader Attia : “A precisely judged and intimate relationship with the viewer”

“The new format of the Prix Marcel Duchamp offers all the short-listed artists the opportunity to show their work to a very broad public. The Centre Pompidou attracts a very diverse range of people, whom we can address emotionally, politically and poetically through a personal aesthetic statement. The 100 to 120 square metres we have each been given motivates us to emphasise the essential, the poetic, and to develop a precisely judged and intimate relationship with the viewer. A space in which we have no right to make mistakes, unless the mistake is part of the scenario, and in Art, everyth...

Yto Barrada : A Fondness for Magic

“I’m fascinated by the complex figure of Thérèse Rivière, a French ethnologist who undertook missions for the Musée de l’Homme, notably in North Africa, returning with a very large collection of objects and images, before being committed to mental hospital with agitated depression. It’s her fondness for magic and the poetic force of her work and of the things that caught her eye (wild flowers, toys, drawings, etc.) that underlie the development of this piece, which I envisage as a rebus. The installation I’m working on will take a form that’s new to me, while also bringing together a numbe...

Ulla von Brandenburg : In Colour

“To view It Has a Golden Sun and an Elderly Grey Moon, visitors are invited to climb a set of stairs that are also an immaculate architectural platform. The exhibition at the Centre Pompidou sees the film presented for the first time in France and offers the opportunity for a new scenography. The film itself is a sequence-shot in Super 16 mm, joined end to end, without any editing, featuring dancers who have worked together for years. The idea was, first of all, to make a colour film about colour. The dancers handle coloured pieces of fabric that are exchanged and incorporated into ceremoni...
