contrepoint louvre 2006 paris

For its second edition, the Contrepoint initiative is ambitious and strange:  to insert in the meanders of the Louvre some works of quite alive contemporary artists. What goes completely against the vocation of the Louvre, sublime cemetery of art in eternal not-evolution. Ten artists thus scattered ten work in the most unforeseen recesses of the Museum. Jean-Michel Alberola, Christian Boltanski, Marie-Angel Guilleminot (which presents also Absalon), Susan Hefuna, Gary Hill, Cameron Jamie, Ange Leccia, Jean-Michel Othoniel, José-Maria Sicilia and Xavier Veilhan chose themselves their sites and their works, while obviously exploiting the contrasting effects with the worthy permanent boarders.  The teddy bear of Boltanski in the Louvre Middle-Age answers the old local archaeological excavations.  Cameron Jamie tells us the festival of Halloween in the area of Arts of Africa and Oceania. The small dog Laïka, first animal of the conquest of space, joined the gallery of famous men by Xavier Veilhan. Jean-Michel Othoniel pays homage to the goddess babylonienne Ishtar, while installing, in front of her, a huge two meters height collar, made of balls of glass of Murano in colours of ochre and pink.  The objects remain discrete but have the merit to break a art score with a rhythm measured so perfectly.
