INFILTRÉES - 5 MANIÈRES
D'HABITER LE MONDE
"INFILTRÉES – 5 manières d’habiter le monde" is the second group exhibition of the Reiffers Art Initiatives 2023 Prize.
The exhibition "Infiltrées - 5 manières d'habiter le monde" highlight the artistic process of five emerging artists from the contemporary scene: Meriem Bennani, Han Bing, Bianca Bondi, Binta Diaw and Ser Serpas.
The exhibition invites the five artists to take over the Acacias Art Center - whose new architecture will be revealed on this occasion - to display works that are almost entirely new. Artists who are not content to simply engage with the world, but who work just as hard to reconfigure it aesthetically and conceptually to propose other visions and other ways of making the world, together. At the end of the exhibition, one of them will be awarded the Reiffers Prize. With the support of Mazarine Group and La Mode en Images.
Reiffers Art Initiatives is a foundation created to support young contemporary creation and cultural diversity.
Reiffers Art Initiatives’ mission is to support France’s new art scene and give it international visibility. It finances and gives exposure to thirty emerging artists every year, who will influence tomorrow’s contemporary art scene.
YOU ARE MY PETROL
Acacias Art Center by Mazarine is pleased to welcome You are My Petrol, My Drive, My Dream, My Exhaust an exhibition by Laure Prouvost. FIAC 2018.
You are My Petrol, My Drive, My Dream, My Exhaust was born from a collaboration between curator Martha Kirszenbaum and the artist Laure Prouvost, selected to represent France at the 2019 Venice Biennale.
Laure Prouvost's immersive films, installations, drawings and wallpapers, combining the representation of desire, onirism and a fantasized description of nature, jeopardize our relationship to language and understanding through the intrication of complex narratives and surrealist moments that feed her unusual approach to the conventions of cinema and image.
The artist gives particular importance to language and its representation, and brilliantly masters this way of playing with words.
It strives to make visible the unimportant objects, those that the consumer system that governs our daily lives has left behind: residues, rubbish, broken or dysfunctional objects, unloved. You Are My Petrol, My Drive, My Dream, My Exhaust reveals the two sides of the same coin, through a diptych of videos that were presented through a resin-based installation, objects such as relics, a motorcycle, an LED or a vodka bar evoking the two environments, one rural and French, the other urban and American.
