BIPEDS, QUADRUPEDS AND PAINTING ON EASEL (TRIPOD)
Along with the Hunting Scenes in Germany exhibition, Rayski / Baselitz, the museum is interested in the relationship between man and nature through what he inspires in an artist of Germanic origin. Born in Germany, where she lived until moving to France in 1977, Gloria Friedmann uses various modes of artistic expression - performances, installations, painting or sculpture - to highlight the way we perceive our ecosystem. Do we not think of nature as a whole distinct from ourselves, on which we could act, but which would not act on us?
In her living paintings as in her sculptures, Gloria Friedmann questions this apparent discontinuity which characterizes modern thought. By bringing together elements of everyday life that are a priori incompatible - natural elements, living animals affixed to products of human industry - it introduces questions on our way of life.
For the first time, all the videos documenting the performances produced by the artist throughout the 1990s are presented in one place. A few installations, some of which have never been seen, complete this committed work.
