MOUNIR FATMI
Recyclage/Surcyclage
Fondation Villa Datris

June 20 – November 01, 2020

For its 10th exhibition in 2020, the Villa Datris Foundation has chosen to explore recycling in all its forms in contemporary sculpture and to question our relationship to objects.
In our time when sustainable development has become an absolute priority, contemporary artists are seizing with particular acuity this fundamental question. They also find there a rich source of inspiration to recreate a new world.
Deliberately, by conviction or by choice, artists use waste as an artistic material in their own right, renouncing the acquisition of so-called "noble" materials to create or compose their works.
