Kimsooja at MAC/VAL Musée d'art Contemporain du Val-de-Marne, Vitry-sur-Seine, France
Tous, des sang-mêlés,
April 22 - September 3, 2017

Through the voice of about sixty international artists and around one hundred artworks, the exhibition investigates the topics of cultural, national and sexual identities. They all revolve around the notion of being, yet some are obvious, others bring up –often passionate, always political- debates, and others call up memories of the past, sensitivity, experiences, and existence itself, from survival instinct to the notion of living together.

The works gathered in this exhibition tackle these topics from a real-life standpoint in a spirit of exchange and dialogue. If cultural identity is a fiction, artists have different ways to interpret, investigate and question it…while taking distance with the –all too reductive- identity perspective.

How do we shape ourselves in regard to our tongue, territory, family, History, story, and stereotypes?

The exhibition proposes several elements to establish a common ground on which alterities could develop together and in regard to one another.
