la maison rouge

Tous cannibales
"We are all cannibals. The simplest way to identify with another is still to eat them." Claude Lévi-Strauss, La Repubblica, 1993.

Until May 15th, la maison rouge is staging an exhibition on anthropophagy and its representations in contemporary visual art.

The exhibition's curator has chosen pieces for the most part by young artists working independently of each other on the concept of incorporation. A body of contemporary works (photography, video, installation, sculpture, drawing and painting) finds echoes in a historic perspective (photographic document , illuminated texts, engravings and ritual objects). Together, they show how the theme of anthropophagy has persisted and evolved through time and place.

Curator: Jeanette Zwingenberger

Chiharu Shiota, home of memory
La maison rouge presents the first major exhibition in Paris of Chiharu Shiota, a Berlin-based Japanese artist, for which she has produced two large-format installations a work composed of suspended dresses in a web of black threads and a totally new piece composed of suitcases From Where We Come and What We Are. The exhibition also shows a video piece and a selection of drawings.


Stéphane Thidet, vie sauvage

Each winter, les amis de la maison rouge produces a work specifically for the foundation's patio. This year, members have chosen the artist Stéphane Thidet.

Stéphane Thidet uses paradoxes such as games and rituals, absence and doubt, disquieting familiarity and the reversal of temporal factors. For the patio, Stéphane Thidet imagines a menagerie, like the ones we might visit in zoos. Seeing that the patio is surrounded by glass, as is a menagerie and in particular the ones that house primates, the artist transposes a zoo environment inside the foundation to reveal the numerous parallels that exist between zoos and galleries, both of which exhibit.
