Dorian Gaudin — Rites and Aftermath



Dorian Gaudin
Rites and Aftermath

Past: February 3 → May 8, 2017

Palais de Tokyo is presenting the first solo show by Dorian Gaudin in an art centre. The artist, whose work has recently been shown at the off-site exhibition organised by Palais de Tokyo alongside Manifesta 11, in Zürich, will produce an original immersive installation, animated by a precise score and mechanism.

Dorian Gaudin appreciates the play of correspondences connecting or separating various elements, from a jet engine to a minimal sculpture, or butchered meat to a mechanical organ. His works are often animated by their own, sometimes chaotic motion, thus bringing together unity and fragmentation, or centrifugal and centripetal forces.
