Produced in partnership with Kamel Mennour (whose gallery represents Claude Lévêque), this exhibition expresses a vision shared by this key figure in the contemporary art world and Paul-Emmanuel Reiffers.
This artwork reflects a generous and genuine desire to share the emotions and challenges raised by artistic creation with the agency's teams and the general public. "Everyone should be able to express their artistic sensibility within the company," explains Paul-Emmanuel Reiffers.
Driven by the idea that creativity should be central to Mazarine – and its day-to-day operations, Paul-Emmanuel Reiffers is convinced that the agency should provide a permanent setting for contemporary art works, which are among the most accomplished expressions of human creativity.
Since 1982, Claude Lévêque has presented his work at such prestigious institutions as PS1 in New York, MAMCO in Geneva, Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and Art Tower Mito in Tokyo. He represented France at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009. Sentient and provocative, the artist creates works and installations as distorted reflections of contemporary society. The artist uses light, sound, objects and everyday situations to create whimsical and strange worlds that have an impact on their viewer. Rites of passage, these works allow the public to discover reality from a fantastical and disturbing angle.
