Kewenig congratulates Christian Boltanski on his retrospective exhibition at Centre Pompidou in Paris, with more than 50 works are on display, 35 years after his first exhibition at the French museum. Conceived by the artist himself as one site-specific installation, 'Faire son temps' takes the viewer on a journey through five decades of Boltanski's oeuvre.
“The more you work, the less you exist. I believe that the artist is like someone carrying a mirror in which everyone can look and recognize themselves, so that the person who carries the mirror ends up being nothing.”- Christan Boltanski
