Unlike other so called “stable or balanced” matters, the turbulent processes are extremely touching, irreversible and unpredictable. The works presented in this exhibition were crossed by fascinating streams and demonstrate the art of playing with turbulence.
The works presented in this exhibition were crossed by fascinating streams and demonstrate the art of playing with turbulence. Far from the threatening turmoil of the constantly announced chaos, they present “turbines” which generate several processes, structures and shapes in the making. The order and the disorder, closely related here, propose a fruitful, dynamic, poetic and captivating universe.
The Espace culturel Louis Vuitton, partner of the exhibition
Louis Vuitton has always kept a close relationship with art. This particular interest led to the opening in 2006 of the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton in Paris. The journey – main theme of the Maison is the guideline for the exhibitions, which give the opportunity to discover new sceneries and new international artists. In this respect, the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton is giving its visitors an unique artistic adventure.
Among the various subjects at the heart of the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton we find: children, music, space discovery and the confusion of senses. The Turbulences exhibition is framed in this context offering not just a simple walk through, but an unique and playful experience. Scrolls of smoke, wakes and washes of ships, turmoil of torrents and waterfalls, the movement creates turbulence.
This is how David Rosenberg and Pierre Sterckx curators of the exhibition introduced the exhibition in Paris in June 2012.
By hosting this new version of the exhibition, called Turbulences II, the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton starts a new cooperation with the Boghossian Foundation.
We have been given an exceptional opportunity by the Espace culturel to spread the exhibition Turbulences from the Villa Empain, a masterpiece of the Art Deco architecture in Brussels.
Moreover, this refined outstanding building enriches this exhibition with the participation of around twenty different artists. Headquarter of the Boghossian Foundation, the Villa Empain is the center of art and dialogue between the cultures of the East and the West.
Spreading from one culture to another and from country to country, the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton joins the movement and invites visitors to discover this new outreach escape, stated Eléonore de Boysson, Director of Réseau Magasins and Marie-Ange Moulonguet, Director of Espace culturel Louis Vuitton.
