Organized by the ADIAF on the invitation of its Director Pierre-Jean Sugier, the Fondation Fernet-Branca is hosting the first exhibition dedicated to the women artists honoured by the Marcel Duchamp Prize who have responded to the enthusiastic project imagined by the young curator Alicia Knock.

2016 – Centre Pompidou, level 4
Exhibition “Under Shadows” : Melik Ohanian, winner of the 2015 Marcel Duchamp Prize :
Curator : Christine Macel
From 1st June to 15 August 2016
For his exhibition “Under Shadows” Melik Ohanian proposes a cosmic scenario halfway between poetry and science. He sets up an environment in which different dimensions are expressed, from the infinitely small to the infinitely large: two extremes where objects in the world around us fade into the background for the period of the exhibition. The central work in this environment, Modelling Poetry, is inspired
by a scientific conjecture announced by NASA, forecasting the collision of the Milky Way with the
Andromeda Galaxy in four billion years’ time.

Exhibition of Julien Prévieux, winner of the 2014 edition
from the 23rd of Septembre 2015 to 1st of February 2016
The Centre Pompidou has launched an invitation to the French artist Julien Prévieux, winner of the 2014 Marcel Duchamp Prize. For his solo show in the 315 space, Julien Prévieux has chosen to mix drawings, abstract sculptures and film around the themes of the recording of movement and the schematization of bodies. Julien Prévieux’s work questions our world and our everyday life from the viewpoint of work, the economy and politics. He takes an interest in controlling devices, cutting-edge technologies and management theories in order to disrupt their logic and reasoning.

2014 – CENTRE POMPIDOU, Paris
Exhibition of Latifa Echakhch, winner of the 2013 edition
October 8, 2014 to January 26, 2015
Latifa Echakhch has devised a specific project for the Centre Pompidou, which follows on from other exhibitions: «Latifa Echakhch. Goodbye Horses» at the Kunsthaus Zurich in 2011, «The scene takes place» at the Eva Presenhuber Gallery in 2013, and «All around fades to a heavy sound» at the kamel mennour gallery this year. In all these exhibitions, Latifa Echakhch explored an idea where circuses and shows become ghostly spectacles emptied of public and performers following «nobody knows» what kind of events or disasters.
With Espace 315, the artist once more places ideas about the stage, decorum and traces at the heart of her approach. The exhibition, consisting of several sculptural components, has a strongly unified feel. The artist seeks to build up a dramatic scene. By making play with the backstage area, the whole work suggests a wide range of meanings an d’interpretations ranging from a disappointing materiality to images of mental landscapes. Latifa Echakhch transforms the venue into a dense, dreamlike place halfway between earth and sky, frozen in a twilight world.
As they move around, visitors discover different fragments of history, objects that are almost derisory, and recollections of childhood drawn from the very depths of memory, then immersed in black ink.
