“Do works of art have the power to modify, by displacing them, our points of view on the contemporary world?” Such is the problematic, eminently political question posed by this exhibition, exploring the impact (visual and environmental, ecological and ethical) of images made by artists to allow us to see the world, such as they […]



Elementary colors, elementary forms, flattened spaces, confusion between form and substance, space and object, base and work, art and design… It is to a clever mixture of genres and a joyful mishmash of forms that Nathalie Du Pasquier, since the 1980s, likes to confront us in upside down spaces. For the French artist and designer, […]



“Making the invisible visible”, showing the imprint of time by capturing on blank canvases stretched over matrices installed in nature the micro-organisms deposited by the wind and rain by leaves, dust, insects… Resulting from a slow process based on the concept of “laissez-faire”, Clément Borderie ‘s canvas-pieces give abstraction the density of life. In her […]

 LORIS CECCHINI : Non-elementary particles


Loris Cecchini, a leading artist born in 1969 in Milan, explores in a playful and highly decorative way “a reconfiguration of our sense of space and our contact with the environment”. A “reconfiguration” which, on the first floor of the iconic sailboat-shaped tower rising above the artificial sands of Dubai, in the Pop-Up exhibition space […]

MICHAEL HEIZER : The lyricism of the masses

With an assertive anti-academism, replacing the elaborate, polished, finely sculpted work with earth or raw stone, and the grace and lightness required since Antiquity with the mass and chaos of voids, the vertigo and dichotomy of spaces, Michael Heizer shows us the clash of the Titans, that of stone against steel, in Rock/Steel, a series […]


James Turrell

Like Michael Heizer, Robert Smithson, Robert Morris, and the other pioneers of the Land Art adventure started at the end of the 70s, James Turrell moves immense masses of earth, models them to transform desert sites into sculptures, or rather, into cosmic theaters intended to make man hear the heartbeat of the earth, from its […]

WANG KEPING: Metamorphoses

Wang Keping

Evoking some archaic goddesses from the depths of time, Wang Keping ‘s monumental wooden sculptures fascinate by their density and sensuality. Maternity, Origin of the World, Cyclops Woman… half-figure, half-totem, they appear frozen in their metamorphoses, suspended between form and formlessness, incarnation and abstraction… Carved in hundred-year-old trees, these hieratic figures seem to come from […]


Alberto Biasi

In 1965, Alberto Biasi (a founding member of Gruppo N, the Italian branch of lumino-kinetic art) took part in the historic exhibition The Responsive Eye at MoMA in New York. Since then, he has continued to deepen his “optico-dynamic” experiments and their retinal reception by the viewer. The concept of “motor eye” gives the viewer […]

SOPHIE CALLE : The Ghosts of Orsay

Sophie Calle

Interweaving past and present, reality and fiction, memories and fantasies, Sophie Calle weaves troubling tales with little nothings, vestiges of ordinary life doomed to decay or oblivion. A virtuoso affabulator, the queen of micro-fiction who, from true-false reports to pseudo-true stories, has been luring us for forty years, returns to the origins of this process […]
