Continuing its exploration of different contemporary practices in sculpture, Le Grand Café welcomes Elisabeth Ballet from 8 February to 22 April. Recognised as an important artist of her generation, she has been invited by the art centre for a new large-scale solo project.
Look up; see into the distance. At Le Grand Café, Elisabeth Ballet’s proposals effectively surpass the architecture; the site becomes a material upon which sculpture works. The seven pieces making up the exhibition function as an ensemble of combinations, of language games, within which the ideas of splitting and repetition are operating. They evoke effort, making reference to the world of work (manual, industrial, intellectual), but also its counterpart, idleness and reverie, as metaphors of the creative process.
