Exhibition at Palais de Tokyo explores the many fields of artistic creation

PARIS.- Can one make works of art which are not ‘of art’? Questioning as Duchamp did the essence of creation and its territories, the Palais de Tokyo explores interstitial worlds, at the borders of art, creation and invention.

The exhibition “Le bord des mondes” is an invitation to travel to the farthest reaches of creation by revealing the prodigious investigations and inventions of a number of visionaries, beyond the traditional realm of art.

From the giant beach creatures of Theo Jansen to Kawakami Kenji’s surprising chindogu or Carlos Espinosa’s poetical cloud traps, the exhibition encourages viewers to go down forbidden paths and bridge the gap that normally separates artistic creation and inventiveness.

Situated at the edges of art and invention, the exhibition shatters the borders between worlds, between identified artistic territories and parallel worlds outside of the art system, by exploring the fertile precipice that can bring them together. By questioning the foundations of a rationalizing modernity that isolates knowledge and practices from each other by excluding unclassifiable acts and ideas, the exhibition looks at original and surprising research.

Twenty-two creators – most of whom come from outside the field of art – develop visions and ideas that through their sheer beauty could certainly belong to it. Neither outsider nor naïve artists, no more than they are “eccentric,” these free spirits explore unknown forms and refresh our gaze, beyond cannons and disciplines.

These are like so many stories that, through their originality and inventiveness, renew our attention to the mysterious zones of creation, expressed in its most audacious form. Here, experience, reinvention and the overcoming of divisions prevail.
