Vincent Lamouroux's 'Par nature' at Fondation d'entreprise Martell

Vincent Lamouroux
Par nature
October 15, 2016–January 31, 2017

The Fondation d’entreprise Martell displays Par nature (By nature) by the French artist Vincent Lamouroux on the ground floor of the building until January 31, 2017. This immersive artwork, which occupies more than 600 square-meters, is curated by Nathalie Viot, the foundation's director and produced by Less Is More Factory, offering an enticing glimpse of the future cultural schedule of the Fondation.

Vincent Lamouroux’s installation is an artificial terra incognita, a mineral and botanical landscape that is—by nature—white. This work, as a form and as a field of experience, offers the possibility of an infinity of viewpoints. It invites visitors to wander along the extraordinary undulating walkways whose elevation speaks to and stimulates the adventurous of spirit.

The white halo fades out around the edges of the work as the sand is spread by visitors’ footsteps. Thus, the imprecise contours offer a choice of entering the landscape or observing from a distance, allowing all to embark on a journey in space and time. The artist has cultivated, down to the finest detail, the appearance of a wild landscape, fixing the dunes and considering the unstable properties of matter. The white veil he has cast over the work is as much the sign of an effacement as the evocation of a beginning. Par nature suggests the power of patient forms whose movement is beyond time.

“The Fondation d’entreprise Martell will be curious, open and transversal. Its mission is to become an original space in Cognac which stimulates pleasure and curiosity, and nurtures creation and innovation. It will bring together, around projects of variable dimension, artists and artisans, new technologies and traditional savoir-faire. The Fondation d’entreprise Martell will be fluid, adaptable, visible and accessible. Visitors will experience diverse environments, materials, skills and artistic approaches. They will come to hear, to see, to feel, to make, to invent, to read, to dream," explains Nathalie Viot, Director of the Fondation d’entreprise Martell and Curator of Par nature.
On October 13, 2016, the House of Martell launched a new corporate foundation in Cognac with a cultural and multidisciplinary vocation. Envisioned as a creative ecosystem, the Fondation d’entreprise Martell will offer a rich and varied schedule of events promoting the discovery and experimentation of culture and savoir-faire, as well as nurturing exchanges and collaborations on a local, national and international scale.
Located in the historic Gâtebourse building, whose modernist architecture makes it a landmark in Cognac, the Fondation d’entreprise Martell just openned with its first exhibition as a preview of the future schedule of events. An ambitious program of improvements will then begin on the interior of the building, with the ground floor and roof top terrace reopening to the public in spring 2018, followed by a gradual opening of the other floors as the work is completed. The entire 6,000 square-meters of the Fondation d’entreprise Martell will be accessible in 2020/2021.

To date, over 500 Green Patriot Posters have been collected. See a selected collection and enjoy the film with us on October 19, 2016 at 6:30pm CT at Xavier, a new apartment building in Cabrini Green.

Art/Act: The Canary Project featuring POST NEW BILLS (Berkeley, CA)

The David Brower Center is pleased to present its eighth annual Art/Act Award and Exhibition, Art/Act: The Canary Project honoring the prolific arts initiative The Canary Project.

The exhibition provides a multimedia overview that shows the kaleidoscopic nature of its work over time. Supporting didactics, archived images and graphics trace how the work connects to the environmental movement and is informed by a theory of change. The exhibition includes selected works from the past ten years, including A History of the Future—a series of landscape photographs taken in places around the world affected by climate change; Eclipse — a video piece about the extinction of the passenger pigeon made in conversation with New Yorker writer, Elizabeth Kolbert; and Green Patriot Posters — a design campaign centered on posters that encourage all U.S. citizens to build a sustainable economy. Also included are photographs and video from Water Gold Soil: American River, a project that examines the water issues of California through the lens of a single flow of water, and also raises deeper political and philosophical questions underlying California’s present ecological crisis.

It is on view September 23, 2016 – February 9, 2017 with an opening reception on Friday, September 23 from 6:30 - 8:30pm.
The creators of The Canary Project, artists Susannah Sayler and Edward Morris will discuss their work in a public lecture presented as part of the opening reception on September 23. The exhibit as a whole will present a strong statement of the many possibilities for art, design and education to contribute vitally to environmental movements.

SEYMOUR X JASMIN BLASCO - extended through Sept 30 (Paris)

We are pleased to announce our collaboration with multidisciplinary artist Jasmin Blasco.

Inspired by his visit to the SEYMOUR+ space, Jasmin has created a site-specific project for our visitors to experience. The interactive module will be accessible at SEYMOUR+ until July 31st, 2016.

THE PROJECT TRANSMISSION 5: Is an audio recording in the form of a guided meditation (RT 5m54s). It will be presented via headphones in the reception area of our space. This special proposition is in consonance with Jasmin’s project: The First Human Born In Space.

BACKGROUND K_XYZ: The First Human Born In Space is a transmedia project primarily composed of short films written and directed by Jasmin Blasco, produced by Pico Studio in partnership with Creative Migration.

Flipping the pioneer narrative on it’s head, K_XYZ tells the story of the Native Astronaut through a series of fictional journal entries authored by a theoretical entity: The First Human Born In Space.

In a series of transmissions, The First Human Born in Space examines the long term effects of the condition of outer space on the human subject, mind and body. The orbital perspective of the native astronaut provides an alien vantage point on Earth from an environment of pure technological mediation. For more info: www.jasminblasco.com/The-First-Human-Born-in-Space

ABOUT THE ARTIST Jasmin Blasco is a multi-disciplinary artist who approaches time-based media as the site where sound, image, and language conspire to generate the fictional. Through a process of research, abstraction and fiction, his practice stages the individual in problematic narratives. He lives and works in Los Angeles.

Blasco holds a BFA in Music Technology from the California Institute of the Arts. He is a graduate of the Media Design Practices program at Art Center College of Design(MFA). His current research project examines the project of space exploration in its symbolic and cultural dimensions.

With the collaborative research platform The NOISE INDEX, he explores the topicality of informational hunger within a framework that runs counter to expected display strategies. The works Convergence and Horizon have been exhibited in Paris and New York at Cutlog, through Fragmental Museum. He also hosts Speak My Language, a monthly show of curated music on the internet radio collective Dublab.
