Xavier Veilhan “Chemin Vert”
This event has ended.
From his immersive installation, La Forêt, presented at CCA Kitakyushu in 1998, to La Statue de Harajuku permanently installed in Tokyo last year, Xavier Veilhan has maintained an ongoing conversation with Japan and its culture. It is here that he directed his ﬁrst ever ﬁlm in 2002, Le Film du Japon, and staged his exhibition “Free Fall” in 2011 in the Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo, not to forget his portraits of architects Tadao Ando and Kazuyo Sejima displayed in the garden of the Chateau de Versailles in 2009.
Within this context, Chemin Vert presents the principal elements of the artist’s oeuvre to the Japanese audience: one pillar being the statuary and the representation of bodies in space – a notion that he implements here both in two and three dimensions – as well as two important series from his explorations into abstraction – the Mobile and Rays installations. The show also introduces the artist’s most recent foray into marquetry and a selection of new drawings made during the Covid-19 conﬁnement.
