“TOI QUI CHEMINES IL N’Y A PAS DE CHEMIN” – BEIJING, CHINA
Journey exploring the artists of the Marcel Duchamp Prize
Exhibition at the Red Brick Art Museum from 26 April to 26 June 2019 in Beijing, organised with the support of the French Embassy in China and the Institut français, as part of the 14th edition of the Croisements festival.
Opening on Friday 26 April 2019.
This third exhibition of the Marcel Duchamp Prize in China offers a fresh look at the French scene through 14 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: Yto Barrada (2016 nominee), 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), Bertrand Lamarche (2012 nominee), Anri Sala (2002 nominee), Zineb Sedira (2015 nominee).
Curator : Annabelle Ténèze assisted by Daphné Mallet.
