Opening Saturday, January 14 at 6 PM

La Maison des Arts, the contemporary arts center of the city of Malakoff, is giving carte blanche to artists whose work was the subject of solo exhibitions. Thereby, Aude Cartier, the director, entrusted Renaud Auguste-Dormeuil, who personally wished to invite Anaël Pigeat as co-curator, the conception of an group exhibition which will take place from January 14th till March 4th, 2012.

Time Capsule is based on a notion that we find in the medieval painting: several temporalities are collected in one work. Two faces (the same person) are juxtaposed inside the same image, become then an architecture of time. This principle that art historians call “simultaneous story” will be investigated through the prism of contemporary works of young or experienced artists. The exhibition will collect at the same time videos, objects and pictures.
