VOGUE Hommes International (English) - - DON’T MISS -

Strongly in­flu­enced by the avant-garde writ­ing of Sa­muel Beck­ett, marked by his dis­cov­ery of the Dada move­ment, and close to artists such as mu­si­cian Steve Re­ich and chore­og­ra­pher Mered­ith Monk, Bruce Nau­man has been a ma­jor fig­ure in con­tem­po­rary art for the past forty years. Hav­ing de­fied gen­res, his pi­o­neer­ing ap­proach to­wards mul­ti­me­dia in­stal­la­tion sig­nif­i­cantly in­formed the work of later gen­er­a­tions of con­cep­tual artists. “I want my work to be ve­he­ment and ag­gres­sive be­cause it forces peo­ple to pay at­ten­tion”. The ve­rac­ity of this state­ment will be put to the test at the Fondation Cartier, which is stag­ing a ret­ro­spec­tive of Nau­man’s most com­pelling pieces with videos and sound in­stal­la­tions that ex­plore the voice, the

body, spir­i­tu­al­ity and the en­vi­ron­ment. 13th March — 21st June 2015 at the Fondation Cartier (Paris 14th ).
