« The Magnets’ Poles by Sarkis » at the musée du Château des ducs de Wurtemberg, Montbéliard.
The exhibition presents a meeting of celebrated figures who influenced the history of France and unknowns who vanished a century ago, having shaped local history.
Sarkis pursues his project, developed in 2000 that focused on a specific Parisian monument. Neon signatures of famous personalities brought a new inspiration to the Pantheon dome. He gives also them a second life in entirely new surroundings. For this first solo exhibition in Montbéliard, like a seismograph mindful of the history of places and objects that he discovers, Sarkis registers stories, digs into archives and personal, collective memories and intertwines these elements in a desire to recreate.
Until 4th January 2015.
