Piste blanche curiosity
Kolkoz (Samuel Boutruche and Benjamin Moreau)
October 19th-25th, 2015
Berges de Seine, between L.S. Senghor and Pont de la Concorde
A snow-covered chalet made of an inflatable structure is installed on the Berges de Seine. Presented for the first time in Miami in 2013, Curiosity is an homage to the NASA Exploration Rover of the same name, deployed in 2012 on the planet Mars and can be considered the paragon of contemporary mobility. With this inflatable artwork, the Kolkoz duo (Samuel Boutruche and Benjamin Moreau) simultaneously pays tribute to the Martian pioneer craft and offers a pataphysical answer to what mobility (and even fluidity) might mean in today’s world, a notion particularly interesting for Chalet Society to rethink the art institution of tomorrow.
CURIOSITY was commissioned by Audemars Piguet, Courtesy Emmanuel Perrotin.
