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.

Musicians: Philippe Ollivier, Yannick « Jeanno » Jory
Mise en piste: Le P’tit Cirk

With Patrice Wojciechowski, Camille Kerdellant, Dominique Chevallie

Within the P’tit Cirk, trapeze artists and acrobats engage in dialogues with their whole body, without uttering a word. In this manner they tell us about their lives, with passionate energy immersed in friendly humor. It is not always simple. Generation conflicts, cultural gratings, causes for disagreement are not rare, neither are opportunities for reconciliation.
