Manuel Vieillot, Home Theatre System COMÉDIES
From May 10th to June 10th 2023
Following a residency in 2020 at the Foundation, the artist Manuel Vieillot presents Home Theatre System COMÉDIES, an exhibition in three locations, at the Maison La Roche, at Le Corbusier’s apartment-studio and at Bagnoler, the artist-run-space that he co-manages in eastern Paris.
During his residency, Manuel Vieillot was able to observe “the traces of architectural language as they manifest themselves, weaving a web where the signs of a material present, as well as those of a fantasized past and a potential future, are taken and combined. Articulating themselves to each other, they express a power of meaning.
The result is two printed objects that accompany the visitor to the Maison La Roche and Le Corbusier’s apartment-studio. Their logic is to be deployed, by the look, between the surface of the wall and that of the paper.
In Bagnoler, he presents a monumental work, which displaces and reproduces the appearance of these signs, in order to give them to be seen and through the prism of his filter, as the image of themselves.
This exhibition is presented by the Fondation Le Corbusier, in partnership with the l’École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris.
