Conversation

Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster - David Lapoujade

 

Thursday 5 July 2018, 5 p.m.

Auditorium

In parallel with the In Tune with the World exhibition, a number of events will be scheduled at which artists, scientists, sociologists, anthropologists and philosophers come together for face-to-face encounters with the public.

 

This Conversation is broadcasted on the Fondation's website (in French only).

In what new ways are humans tied to their environment?

 

Each work of Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster reveals different “appearances”, ideal for the invention of identities that, according to the artist, opens new artistic spaces. Appearances-disappearances, reflections and existences are at the heart of the thoughts of these two speakers.

 

Today’s artists reflect and interpret the fascinating, leading-edge research being conducted to understand the oneness of the countless forms of life that form the tapestry of our world, blurring the distinctions between human, animal, plant and even mineral.

 

This In Tune with the World exhibition is based on a specific theme that explores current questions about mankind’s place in the universe and new approaches to how humans are tied to their environment and the realm of living things.

Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster

 

Since the end of the 1980s, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster has been exploring the relationships between reality and fiction in the form of environments, performances, photos, and films. Converging cinematic, literary, and musical recollections, each of her works is an opportunity of different “appearances”. Exceeding the notion of the individual, her works confirm through gestures the presence and form of anonymity.
