Céleste Boursier-Mougenot: Acquaalta
Palais de Tokyo
13, avenue du Président Wilson, 75 116 Paris, France

This summer, Palais de Tokyo sees its exhibition spaces fundamentally transformed when it welcomes a major installation by Céleste Boursier-Mougenot (born 1961, lives in Sète).

This singular artist of the French scene represents at the same time France at the Venice biennale (9 May – 22 November 2015).

Acquaalta is the annual flood in the Venetian lagoon. In summer 2015, this same phenomenon takes over the spaces of Palais de Tokyo. Céleste Boursier-Mougenot creates a lakeside landscape which leads visitors into an experience, at once tactile, visual and auditory, which changes their perception of the space: “It is good to worry the visitor sometimes, to give him or herself a coded image. People love seeing themselves disappear.” (Céleste Boursier-Mougenot)
As they move across this flooded space, visitors enters a stream of images which set the scene for an imaginary journey, a voyage through their own psyche.

A publication edited by Palais de Tokyo goes with the exhibition.

Curator: Daria de Beauvais
