In a Chinese-Hispanic hyperspace on the border between Mexico and the U.S.A., populated by shops, restaurants and Chinese industriousness, a tangle of tubes and tunnels creates a kaleidoscopic vision of our globalized society. The new work by the Argentine artist Mika Rottenberg, presented at the 2017 Skulptur Projekte in Münster.
A hallucination under the L.A. sun: the brazen freedom of a group of adolescents, the liquid sensuality of the animal world, the decay of nature, the indifference of solid matter. Opposites which attract each other, instinct against identity in the new work by the Franco-Belgian artist Laure Prouvost.
Paris is in the grip of protesters and the police, but at the Hotel Occidental a game of suspicions and tension is playing out between a gay Italian couple, the owner who thinks they are thieves, the clumsy North African bellhop, the ditzy receptionist and the policemen. In the new work by the Franco-Algerian artist Neil Beloufa, the hotel is like a geopolitical micro-universe which makes clichés implode and the tensions of contemporary society explode.
