Elina Brotherus — Carte blanche PMU 2017



Elina Brotherus
Carte blanche PMU 2017

Past: September 27 → October 22, 2017

For the 8th edition of Carte blanche PMU and the 3rd at the Centre Pompidou, Elina Brotherus, a Finnish artist, has chosen to take a look at the world of the game and offers to take us to an enchanted universe using, for the first time, a second character.

“The Laureate of Carte blanche PMU 2017, Elina Brotherus takes us with her new project to the enchanted world of children’s games — with one difference: two adult women are the inventors. Like two Alices in Wonderland, the artist and her dancing friend Vera Nevanlinna open the doors of new worlds in each photographic series and video. The keys to them are event scores — scenarios borrowed from Fluxus artists. A new proposition to extend the understanding of the word “game”. A word that evokes a hobby, the joy of chance, and hidden in the scenes invented by the two artists are both the playful and the absurd sides of everyday life”

Karolina Ziebinska-Lewandowska, Curator, Photographic collection — Centre Pompidou.
