In collaboration with the municipality of Bordeaux, it was decided to bring back to life the Temple des Chartrons, an iconic place for the inhabitants of the French city. The exhibition “Merci” is a site-specific project developed during four month of residency.
The exhibition is an immersive proposal that questions our complex and contradictory relationship with nature, through a displacement of vegetal elements in contraposition with the symbolic architecture of a temple that has been closed to the public for more than thirty years.
Painting, sculpture, video, sounds and projections enliven the space. Through a series of juxtapositions of images using different media, perspective games and changes in spatial and temporal scales, a path both sensory and metaphysical prevents a single reading.
The installation is acquired by the CAPC Musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux.
