Somewhere else

Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton

For its 14th exhibition, the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton is offering a new variation on the theme of travel and has chosen to showcase the “Ailleurs” of eighteen artists known as “expeditionists”. Or the expedition as an artistic practice….

An increasing number of artists are choosing this work environment: it is a matter of relocating creation to qualify it differently, leaving, installing the work of art or producing it outside its conventional living space. The nature of the expedition to which they are dedicated can be very diverse. In the displacement, the artist finds in the encounter with new spaces, with other humans – sometimes distant, sometimes close but always “other” – the opportunity of a singular creation whose first characteristic is the eccentricity.
