Pascale Marthine Tayou presents three artworks: Empty Gift, an installation already presented at the “Love is Colder Than Capital” exhibition at Kunsthaus Bregenz (2013); Favelas, an installation of nesting boxes which produce murmuring sounds, as if each little house was inhabited; and Court Circuit, a work about the connections between people (the tables and chairs are there for them) and between objects (the electric wires link all the parts).
Jérémy Gobé exhibits La Liberté guidant la laine, a gigantic installation between a knitted object and a fleece that pays homage to work that is forgotten or which remains hidden; Le propre de l’homme, a furniture which is partly or completely covered in knitting and attempts to give a second life to a lost object, restore its body, and find a phantomatic owner for it; with Chairs Gobé occupies some of the Centquatre’s furniture, covering the seating with reclaimed clothing.
