Tan­gled

Where Paris - - Art & Attractions -

The Mai­son Rouge-Fon­da­tion An­toine de Gal­bert is pre­sent­ing an in­trigu­ing ex­hi­bi­tion bring­ing to­gether Out­sider Art, rit­ual African ob­jects, works of sa­cred art, and con­tem­po­rary and mod­ern works whose com­mon theme is en­tan­gle­ment. The show, en­ti­tled Inex­tri­ca­bilia, brings to­gether works by 50 dif­fer­ent artists from a host of coun­tries, hori­zons and epochs but which use sim­i­lar tech­niques, ma­te­ri­als and cre­ative pro­cesses. Whether they are veg­e­tal, or­ganic or metal­lic, the as­sem­bled fi­bres are all in­ge­niously in­ter­twined, knot­ted by force, held to­gether in tan­gles that are in­ex­tri­ca­ble. The highly sym­bolic ob­jects are cou­pled with deep spir­i­tual prop­er­ties de­ploy­ing ther­a­peu­tic, pro­phy­lac­tic, tal­is­manic or apotropaic virtues, ex­or­cis­ing, lib­er­at­ing, heal­ing, pro­tect­ing or con­jur­ing up evil, but above all they as­tound. Through to Septem­ber 17 10 blvd de la Bastille (12th), 01 40 01 08 81
