The exhibition at La Panacée, The Street. Where the world is made from June 08th to August 15th, offers substantial space to video, since it is through the screen—a sort of interface between the private and the public spheres—that we perceive the world today.
Hou Hanru’s project brings together 60 artists from all over the world, it offers a lively, poetic, and political panorama of this public arena.
Several street-centered themes:
►Politics, with drawings and paintings dealing with social or protest movements and demonstrations
►Everyday life (work, leisure, eating, etc.): artists now perceive the street as both an extension of the domestic space and as a locus of marginalization and social exclusion.
►Action: artists have been invading the street spaces since the 1960s. It is often felt as an ideal platform for experiments and actions that highlight the sense of depersonalization and loneliness inherent to the urban environment.
►A transitional space: favoring the osmosis between interior and exterior, the street is a place for shared, common experiences
►The street is finally the cartographical zone where traffic, commerce, entertainment, and lighting intersect to set up systems of hierarchy.
