L'île Intérieure

From April 29th to November 5th, 2023, the Fondation Carmignac on Porquerolles presents L'île Intérieure exhibition at Villa Carmignac. As a mise en abyme of the insular location of the Fondation on Porquerolles, the exhibition explores an essential driver of creation, as powerful as it is common: the distancing of reality as to reveal an interiority.

In the beginning are landscapes and bodies, landscapes in bodies then, as dreams often like to produce, a tangle of situation, situations that are blurry, pleasant, and sometimes
disturbing. Faced with work acting as mirages, the gaze wanders.

While contemporary art has never been as political or engaged with the world as it is now, a whole section of creation, and particularly in painting, is seemingly breaking away from it in
order to offer vertiginous immersions into inner worlds and recesses. What is the significance of this current distancing from reality?
