Espace culturel Louis Vuitton
A new horizon opens with “Perspectives”. For the first time, the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton is concentrating on two artists. Two women, two French citizens, two different and complementary offerings. Odile Decq is an established architect who has just completed the extension and fitting of the MACRO (Rome); Camille Henrot is a 31-year-old visual artist pre-selected for the Prix Marcel Duchamp 2010. The meeting of their two visions gives the “Perspectives” exhibition all of its meaning.
Sixteen works, which are creations for the most part, offer an attempt to understand space and the world by means of a twofold view. Perspective is a way of seeing and foreseeing, a trompe l’oeil, an oblique way of representing objects in order to better reveal them.
