“TOI QUI CHEMINES IL N’Y A PAS DE CHEMIN” – SHANGHAI, CHINA
Journey exploring the artists of the Marcel Duchamp Prize
Exhibition at the Minsheng Art Museum from 6 September to 20 October 2019 in Shanghai, organised with the support of the French Embassy in China and the Institut français.
Opening on Friday 6 September 2019.
This fifth exhibition of the Marcel Duchamp Prize in China offers a fresh look at the French scene through 12 laureate artists and nominees for the Marcel Duchamp Prize. Annabelle Ténèze, curator, has chosen to select the works with a focus on paths, i.e. on travels, journeys and discovery. Taking as its starting point a line by the Spanish poet Antonio Machado (1875-1939), “Toi qui chemines il n’y a pas de chemin” (travelers, there is no path, paths are made by walking), this project brings together works in which travel is as much a subject as it is a metaphor. Each work thus becomes an opening, a path of discovery.
The artists: Neïl Beloufa (2015 nominee), Michel Blazy (2008 nominee), Mohamed Bourouissa (2018 nominee), Ulla von Brandenburg (2016 nominee), Mircea Cantor (2011 laureate), Clément Cogitore (2018 laureate), Latifa Echakhch (2013 laureate), Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige (2017 laureates), Camille Henrot (2010 nominee), Anri Sala (2002 nominee), Zineb Sedira (2015 nominee).
Curator : Annabelle Ténèze assisted by Daphné Mallet.
