David Altmejd: Flux
PARIS  •  Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris  •  10 October 2014 - 1 February 2015

The Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris presents Flux, the first French retrospective of the work of David Altmejd. The exhibition includes unshown and older pieces, together with his most recent and certainly most ambitious monumental sculpture, The Flux and The Puddle (2014).

The exhibition takes the form of a work in its own right, with creatures sometimes combining the anthropomorphic and the animal: half-vegetal, half-mineral hybrids that make play with the architecture of the museum as they spin out their arachnoid labyrinths. David Altmejd's approach to sculpture is characterised by its wide variety of materials and a longstanding interest in the natural sciences and architecture.

Born in Montreal in 1974, David Altmejd lives and works in New York.

Twenty Years Later In Rwanda

Dorothée Munyaneza recreates today the dance of the surviving bodies.

She emanates ease, poetry in her whole being, a childlike fluttering.  A mysterious presence, which fails to reveal a deep wound named Rwanda. There, in her youth, Dorothée Munyaneza met the terrifying genocide. Twenty years later, she can tell the facts without yielding to the pathos of a witness’ account, but rather by giving life to the dead, to the memories of old times, against a background of a radio programme that broadcast musical pieces from somewhere else, a music that had people sing and dance.

Luigi  Pirandello: Six Characters in Search of an Author

Unexpectedly the characters come, impose themselves on a director and his comedians, and impose their plottings and conflicts, which collide with the problems of this troupe, which is supposed to give them reality. Thirteen years after a first version, Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota is back, surrounded by his family of actors, whose plottings and conflicts are described by the masterly Italian playwright.

Translation: François Regnault
Directed by Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota
Scenography, lights: Yves Collet
Music: Jefferson Lembeye
Costumes: Corinne Baudelot
