Bêtes off

Claude d’Anthenaise

Collection "Catalogues d'exposition"

An original encounter between contemporary art and cultural heritage in a magic forest filled with imaginary beasts.
35 contemporary works (sculptures and installations, videos, prints and drawings) by 60 artists including Markus Hansen, Christian Gozenbach, Laurie Karp, Sheila Concari, Gavin Young, Agathe David, and Maro Michalakakos.

As winter approaches, strange creatures are coming to Paris to spend the season. Imagined by contemporary artists, they fill the mysterious forest that has sprung up in the Conciergerie. By venturing into this wild space and the accompanying book, the public will make strange encounters. On themed pathways, they will discover surprising works: objects of fantasy, mirrors reflecting our failings and weaknesses or alarming witnesses to major environmental issues.

In the general introduction, Claude d’Anthenaise broaches the place and various roles of the animal figure in the imagination and practice of today’s artists. The second part will enable the reader to travel to the thirty-five monuments where, during the summer of 2011, the sixty or so artists produced original works. The Parliament of Fowls, The Big Herd, and Utopias for a Dog are some of the themes tackled.
