Vision on Vision: The Lemaître Video Collection
This exhibition, curated by Hyunjin KIM, highlights the work of passionate moving image collectors, Isabelle and Jean-Conrad Lemaître.
The choice of this medium for the Lemaître couple was born from two passions: one for the cinema, the other for the contemporary art. For more than 30 years, this duo of enthusiasts, who defines themselves as "Passeurs", has made video, the favorite medium of their collection by gathering very recent works of young artists, French and foreign, who question the world and question the relationship of this medium to documentary and cinema. Each moment of discovery of a work is also an encounter with an artist, an expression, a will, a vision.
"Vision on Vision - The Lemaître Video Collection" at SeMA Bunker will present from December 7 to January 21, 2018 a selection of videos from 11 international artists.
Artists: Bartana Clement Cogitore, Keren Cytter, Yang Fudong, Beatrice Gibson, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Emily Jacir, Isaac Julien, Deimantas Narkevicius Catherine Sullivan and Superflex.
