SAM Art Projects - 2011

Inci Eviner
Broken Manifestos

14 January – 3 April 2011

Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris
Room 18 in the permanent Collection.

In residence at Villa Raffet as part of SAM Art Projects since August 2010, Inci Eviner is a Turkish artist who lives and works in Istanbul.

One of the most prominent artists on the contemporary Turkish scene and represented by Galeri Nev, Inci Eviner has taken part in numerous biennales including in Istanbul and in Busan, South Korea, in October this year. In 2009 she was awarded a residency at the MAC/VAL in Vitry-sur-Seine where she presented the New Citizen project, and showed the Harem installation at Istanbul Traversée in Lille.

For her exhibition in Room 18 of the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, thanks to SAM Art Projects, Inci Eviner will present a series of three installations. The first space is filled with drawings produced during her residency at Villa Raffet. Taking inspiration from current events and miscellaneous documents, this is a world that is part Bruegel, part Surrealism. It forms an antechamber, a subliminal state that leads to the vast video panorama in the next space. Fifteen metres long, like a frieze or wallpaper, it shows small figures in the act of demonstrating, dancing, moving in a burlesque or solemn way. It surrounded by a special designed sound. Produced by SAM Art Projects and shown for the first time, it uses HD picture-in-picture techniques and sets the stage for the third and final installation, Parliament.

A catalogue will be published.

Winner of the SAM Prize for contemporary art 2010

Thursday December 16th, the jury of SAM Art Projects has announced the winner of the SAM Prize for contemporary art 2010: Laurent Pernot

Born in 1980, Laurent Pernot lives and works in Paris. Graduated from university and from Le Fresnoy National Studio of Contemporary Arts, his path has brought him to travel around the world for a series of exhibitions and artist residences.

By using photography, digital images, sound and installations, Laurent Pernot experiments with a variety of temporal, poetic and immersive processes. The project “Rush to Perdition” explores the history of the Gold Rush in Brazil, from the early 17th century, in the mines of Minas Gerais. The artist will work on location, particularly in the city of Ouro Preto, in order to focus on this period of the past where thousand of hopes were born, and which was affected not only by a region but by the geopolitics of the entire world, a place where dreams meet illusions, miracles and despair, humanism and cruelty. The aim of this project is to produce a film and an installation, to immerse the viewer into this collective imaginary and memory in the depth of the mountains, among the ghosts of this fascinating history.

This project will be exhibited at the Palais de Tokyo in December 2011 and a catalogue will be published.

Fourth resident choosen by SAM Art Projects Committee.
Indonasian artist, he will arrive at Villa Raffet in September 2011 and will prepare a show at Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris for January 2012.

SAM Art Projects was founded in April 2009 by Sandra and Amaury Mulliez to promote, support and defend contemporary creation in the plastic arts through a dialogue between France and the so-called “emerging” countries.

1. SAM Art Projects awards two annual residency grants at Villa Raffet in Paris to artists from the so-called “emerging” countries.

2. The SAM Award for Contemporary Art is presented each year to an artist living in France who has a project intended for one of these countries.

Each of these three artists benefits from an exhibition at a prestigious venue in Paris and a publication.
