UN MONDE COMMUN

05.03.2024 > 31.01.2025

A large part of the works presented in this new display are recent acquisitions with a significant number of donations from artists, collectors or « Amis du musée » which enable the collection to be enriched each year.

A particular look is given to artists whose proposals echoes contemporary issues, whether ecological, political or more poetic. They come from different parts of the world and all maintain a relationship with the present, while opening horizons allowing the construction of a common space, “the experimentation of possible forms of sensitive community*”.

Anna Boghiguian weaves a denim canvas, from Nîmes, with an Egyptian felucca sail to evoke trade in the Mediterranean.

Jumana Manna creates shapes reminiscent of Khabaya, architecture specific to the Middle East, seed storage spaces reminding us of ancestral practices and ecological emergencies.

Uriel Orlow in the Memory of Trees photography series evokes what the trees saw during the Apartheid era in South Africa.

Clemens von Wedemeyer thinks about the notion of crowd and individual using models linked to digital technologies.

An important place was given to the donation Lena Vandrey and her Musée des Anges, an artist of German origin who left post-war Germany for Paris then the Cévennes where she undertook work that could be called of repair. This singular work connects us to the ghosts of history, to the angels, to the paradise that the Cévennes may have been for her but also to her feminist commitments which brought her closer for a time to Monique Wittig or Niki de Saint Phalle.
