  • Ida TURSIC & Wilfried MILLE - The Back of the Sign, 2007


    Prix Fondation d'Entreprise Ricard 2009

    Centre Pompidou, Paris, france
    starting October 13th

    Every year since 1999, the Prix Fondation d'entreprise Ricard has been awarded to an emerging artist on the young French art scene featured in an exhibition designed by an independent curator. Awarded by a jury of art critics and collectors (friends of the Centre Pompidou, the Palais de Tokyo, the Jeu de Paume...), the Prize consists in the purchase of a work from the winner, a work then donated to the Centre Pompidou and exhibited in the collections of the Musée national d'art moderne. Ida Tursic and Wilfried Mille's The Back of the Sign, which won the Prix Fondation d'entreprise Ricard in 2009, will thus be shown at the Centre Pompidou starting October 13 and on.

  • Ida TURSIC & Wilfried MILLE, Centre Pompidou in the State Hermitage Museum

    The Antechamber, the Nicholas Hall, the Hermitage Theater

    From 5 October to 14 November 2010 the new project Centre Pompidou in the State Hermitage Museum intended to
    demonstrate the variety of the Pompidou Center's forms of work with modern art will be presented in the State Hermitage within the framework of the year of France in Russia. The purpose of the project Centre Pompidou in the State Hermitage Museum is to pay special attention to the form of demonstration of modern artworks and discussion about them, which will become a continuation of a long-term interaction and mutual enrichment of Russian and French cultures. Holding the project in the primary parade halls of the Winter Palace will enable the opening of a multi-level dialog of styles and ages that is meant to become a smooth artful account on transformations of modern art.

    There is always a cup of sea to sail in

  • Tatiana TROUVÉ


    South London Gallery

    October 1rst – November 28, 2010

    Tatiana Trouvé’s work spans drawing, painting and sculpture, often brought together in precisely-scaled architectural installations which suggest the possibility of underlying narratives. For the SLG she creates a new installation in the main gallery incorporating three interlinking spaces interspersed with drawings and sculptural objects.

    Trouvé reconfigures and modifies spaces, never completely obscuring their original form but introducing shifts in scale and detail which transform our understanding and experience of them. Taking a set of drawings in her most recent artist’s book as a point of departure, for the South London Gallery Trouvé divides the single volume of the main exhibition hall into three separate but interlinking chambers, each one offering glimpses into the next, the original architecture being altered but not completely denied.

    As visitors make their way through spaces of differing dimensions and ceiling heights, components from the source drawings are gradually revealed. Carefully placed sculptural objects, drawings on canvas, burn marks made directly on walls, as well as the spaces themselves, have all been derived from the original images through various processes of transfer, from one measurement, material or surface to another. Coils of rope are fashioned from copper, bags are made of wax and suspended from copper threads and a small bronze cushion is squashed between a pillar and a wall. These and other elements suggest a complex web by which they are connected, hinting at the possibility of a hidden narrative to explain their presence as well as at the processes of mutation behind their creation.

    Trouvé was winner of the prestigious Marcel Duchamp Prize in 2007, has exhibited widely internationally, including at the Venice Biennale, and had a solo show at the Centre Georges Pompidou in 2008, yet this is her first major solo show in the UK.

  • Katja Strunz - Canopy Curtain


    Kunststation Sankt Peter Köln, GERMANY

    04.09.10 - 10.10.10

    In the courtyard of the Kunst-Station Sankt Peter in Cologne, a "piece of heaven" will fall down: Katja Strunz' large-scale sculptural folded works which she is known for and which are usually vertically positioned on the wall, are reinterpreted and shown as a lying down horizontal sculpture. Inside the church, an installation is presented on the gallery combining lamps, found objects and instruments which thus creates a "garden of reception".
