Ben Russell
La montagne Invisible

Past: January 23 → April 5, 2020

The frac île-de-france presents the first exhibition in France dedicated to the American artist Ben Russell. As an artist, filmmaker, and curator, Ben Russell’s work exists primarily at the site of projection, resulting in an embodied and hallucinatory experience of the documentary image.

La montagne invisible is a multi-screen installation conceived as a journey into the infinite: an immersive multi-channel AV installation that transforms the material of a Finnish wanderer’s secular pilgrimage towards a utopian summit into an infinite video labyrinth of beginnings, endings and disjunctive in-betweens.

Exhibition curator: Xavier Franceschi

  • Opening Wednesday, January 22 at 6 PM
