SOUND aND VisiON
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 ).
