Angelika Markul: Terre de départ [Land of Departure]

 

14.02.2014 – 12.05.2014

 

PALAIS DE TOKYO

Level 0 – Galerie Basse

 

To reflect on the destiny of humanity, Angelika Markul’s work combines the forces of nature with the upheavals caused by the actions of mankind. Videos, sculptures and environments form landscapes that oscillate between zones of meditation and zones of turbulence. The artist leads us to our most inner depths, where ecological preoccupations and questions that have perplexed humanity for time immemorial, a fascination with technology and a contemplation of the vastness of nature resonate. A complex set of forces is at play within the artist’s hands as she summons the specters of a multitude of natural or industrial catastrophes. We stroll through the exhibition as we might explore a complex scenario, where each work startles, shakes up our memory: “I reconstruct a memory by associating actual remembrances with other images, which I encounter and film,” explain the artist. “My relationship to memory stems from my obsession with death and with my own history.
