An initiatory journey between photography, sculptures and installations
It was with an undisguised enthusiasm that Sam Stourdzé, the director of the Rencontres d’Arles became the curator of this exhibition. During a year, he immersed himself in the collection, abounding, sometimes buried works, making an initiatory journey between photography, sculptures and installations, at the heart of the preoccupations of its architect. There came a cry: Vivre !!, become a title and a journey articulated in seven sections, like exclamations. Vivre ? It’s work! It is revolting! It’s love! It’s dancing! It’s living! It is youth, and then death. Far from constituting a collection of abstract art, Agnes (b) is fascinated by works dealing with the human, the other, the definition of self and the question of gender.
