Palais de Tokyo
23 Oct → 3 Jan 2021
From Wednesday to Monday from 12 am to Midnight. Closed Tuesday.
There is no doubt that the current health crisis is leading us to reconsider our relationship with bodies. The risk of falling ill, the experience of lockdown and isolation, the use of social distancing: so many experiences that reinvent our way of living in spaces and of cohabiting with our peers. Conceived by the curatorial team of the Palais de Tokyo, the exhibition Antibody gives the floor to twenty French and international artists on the subject. In new works, A.K. Burns, Xinyi Cheng, Kate Cooper, Kevin Desbouis and many others think about the vulnerability of our bodies and the way we rethink our connections today, with all the barriers and concerns that this implies. They explore the registers of affectivity, presence and the exploration of the meaning of touch when it is impossible. Without making the current health crisis the subject, touch and distance are at the heart of their work, but also of the exhibition itself. The latter then stands out in the disrupted landscape of culture as an attempt to recreate connection by reinventing the being-together.
