On the occasion of the Art Élysées’s eighth edition, Baudoin Lebon will exhibit an installation of the Cuban artist Javier Balmaseda. In 2013, he represents the Principality of Andorra for the 55th Biennale di Venezia with the artwork “Fixed in Contemporaneity “. This installation consists of 10 horses of which legs have been cut, and are now fixed to jacks and other automobile elements.

The artist’s first intention is to create an image of contemporaneousness according to his own experiments, reflecting about life’s and art’s aspects. Through this installation, he questions — by means of a metaphor — a contemporary society overwhelmed by the loss of cultural identity. Hunger, precariousness, impotence, uncertainty, resignation and banishment are the triggering factors which incites him to manipulate this reality.
