In cosmology, the parallel world is defined as a universe with its own measurements of space and time. If such worlds existed, they would logically have to be separated from ours and governed by different laws, thus reversing the fundamental principles that we thought were absolute and immutable.
Based on works currently being acquired or recently entered into the museum's collections, this exhibition is a series of monographic presentations of artists whose works are striking in their singularity, thus constituting autonomous universes. Although each representing a very personal world, the seven artists gathered here –
Marie Bourget (1952-2016),
Helmut Federle (1944 -),
Hélène Garache (1928-2023),
Hubert Kiecol (1950 -),
Charlotte Rampling (1946 -),
Anne-Marie Schneider (1962 -)
and Pierre Weiss (1950 -)
– have in common an uncompromising requirement in their relationship to reality and to their art, some have rarely, if ever, been exhibited.
Through their productions, these artists invite us to broaden our habits of perception, generally rooted in the visible world, in order to transport ourselves to a parallel, poetic and emotional universe. To do this, they rely on different approaches: some play on the variety of forms and signifiers with multiple reversals; others develop precise rituals, making them resonate with invisible forces.
