Tout ira bien (rien de nouveau sous le soleil) — Marc-Alexandre Reinhardt
The Centre d’exposition L’Imagier invites you to the opening of the exhibition Tout ira bien (rien de nouveau sous le soleil) by Marc-Alexandre Reinhardt, on Friday, August 16, 2019, at 7:00 pm. The exhibition continues through September 29, 2019.
A multidisciplinary artist and researcher, Marc-Alexandre Reinhardt works primarily with sound, performance, text and video. For the exhibition, Everything will be fine (nothing new under the sun), Reinhardt presents a new project that is part of a larger research. As he explains, “(he) is interested in the perception of nature in an anthropocenic context with a particular focus on the exploitation, use and imaginary of salt.
The exhibition Tout ira bien (nothing new under the sun) brings together two videos, a low-power radio transmission, a sound sculpture and a photograph backlit by a light table. Marc-Alexandre Reinhardt’s practice takes into consideration different aspects of the environment. His research focuses on the history of places, the narratives that surround them and the ambiences that emerge from them by creating conceptual and sensitive devices. Reinhardt invites the visitor to poetically experience the sound and luminosity of the exhibition space itself, making the body on the lookout.
Discussion / September 15, 2019, 2 p.m.
