Three exhibitions open this September at CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux, and we are very proud to host in October two unique (sold out) live performances by Alejandro Jodorowsky inside the major retrospective on view until October 31, 2015 at our institution. Other parallel events will include a performance of Swiss choreographer Alexandra Bachsetzis’s solo Gold, and a lecture on Jodorowsky’s invention of Panic Theatre in the 1960s by French scholar Marielle Pelissero.
Album, a project by Gintaras Didžiapetris
with Elena Narbutaité and Rosalind Nashashibi
Album features a group of works by Gintaras Didžiapetris together with selected works by Elena Narbutaité and Rosalind Nashashibi. The exhibition’s title riffs on albumen prints, a photographic printing method invented in France which became the most widely used printing technique in the 19th century. Since then, collections of images (or songs) are known as “albums.” Similarly, this exhibition functions as a set of images, with Galerie Ferrère becoming a single open space where visitors can walk through. Didžiapetris understands this flattened space similar to a hand fan, a device that allows one to open and show the images all at once through a single gesture.
Curator: Agar Ledo
This exhibition is co-produced by MARCO, Museo de Arte Contemporánea de Vigo and CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux. With the collaboration of Pavilion, Leeds.
Khvay Samnang, Rubber Man
Khvay Samnang’s multidisciplinary practice prompts new interpretations of history and contentious current affairs, often through intentionally futile gestures. With Rubber Man, Khvay responds to the colonial legacy of land use and its effects on Cambodia’s indigenous forests and culture today. Rubber Man is set in the rubber plantations in the northeastern highland province of Ratanikiri, where deforestation threatens the longstanding practices of diverse indigenous populations who entrust nature and ancestor spirits with subsistence cultivation cycles. Khvay’s three-channel video installation confronts this contested landscape with poetic resistance. As the ancient forests and communal lands are lost to private cash crops, Khvay asks, where will the spirits live?
Curator: Erin Gleeson
This exhibition is co-produced by Jeu de Paume, Paris, F.N.A.G.P. and CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux. The Friends of the CAPC contribute to the production of the artworks in this programme.
a selection of artists’ books from the library collection of the CAPC musée
Artists’ books have always offered a good measure to reconsider conventional modes of creation and diffusion of art by proposing a wide panel of published forms and concepts. Since its emergence in the 1960s, it constitutes a work of its own. From the moment the CAPC musée started back in 1973, the book object has had a privileged place in its library. The exhibition Hors Texte gathers and displays some of the inescapable items of our collection.
