For its Fall exhibition, Jérôme Poggi has invited the curator Sasha PEVAK to conceive a two-part project, which will be jointly presented at the gallery and at the Grand Palais for the 45th edition of FIAC.
Entitled ‘The Border is a State of Mind’, the exhibition gathers the work of seven artists : Babi Badalov, Eric Baudelaire, Bady Dalloul, Nikita Kadan, Kapwani Kiwanga, Sophie Ristelhueber and Société Réaliste.
This collective project revolves around the notion of a territorial border and the symbolic implications it contains. In the exhibition’s founding statement, Sasha Pevak puts into perspective the unachieved utopia of the XXth century, a possible ‘world without borders’, and the state of our present world, in which erecting walls seem to be ‘promises of a safer and more prosperous future’ from the standpoint of certain politicians and media. ‘Instruments of colonization, borders represent a symbol of violence endured by the colonized nations thoughout History, bearing witness to past and present conflicts’, states the curator.
