BMW Group France annonce le nouveau duo lauréat du prix BMW ART MAKERS, son programme de mécénat dédié aux arts visuels et à l’image contemporaine. L’artiste Eva Nielsen et la curatrice Marianne Derrien ont été choisies par le jury pour leur projet « Insolare »

Insolare est un projet commun des deux lauréates conçu spécialement pour le programme BMW ART MAKERS.Démarche à la fois poétique et scientifique mêlant images, peintures et architecture afin d’interroger le temps à travers la sédimentation du paysage urbain Camarguais : territoire, géologie et architecture. Les mutations de l’environnement causées par l’homme sur les paysages urbains, industriels ou naturels sont évoqués avec l’utilisation d’outils numériques. L’intérêt se porte en particulier aux interzones entre villes et campagnes, espaces abandonnés pour certains, terrains de jeux pour d’autres ou encore parfois zones de survie.

« Être lauréates du BMW Art Makers, c’est pour nous l’opportunité d’activer ce nouveau projet qui invite à renouveler le regard sur une œuvre sédimentée par l’image – hybridation entre peinture, photographie et sérigraphie. C’est également le fait de mettre à l’épreuve la relation entre image, peinture, architecture toujours en dialogue avec un espace, un territoire – zones vivantes – modelées par la main humaine que nous souhaitons approfondir dans notre projet. »


Curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, the 16th Lyon Biennale manifesto of fragility proceeds with the announcement of its curatorial framework, participating artists and institutional partners that will come together to realize the Biennale’s multifaceted exhibitions and programs. 

manifesto of fragility emphasizes the importance of individual encounters in gaining insight into the circumstances that shape our contemporary realities. Many of the artists share an awareness of the architectural and historical specificities of their surroundings. This sensitivity allows for rigorous points of contact between coexisting identities, communities and histories that can activate dynamic societal changes. Seeking collaborative actions that can bridge divides and build communal responses to global conditions, the 16th Lyon Biennale engages an expansive network of artists practicing in cities across the globe, including: Abu Dhabi, Amsterdam, Basel, Beirut, Berlin, Bogota, Brussels, Cape Town, Casablanca, Copenhagen, Cork, Dhaka, Dubai, Geneva, Ghent, Guadalajara, Helsinki, Jeddah, Lagos, Lisbon, London, Los Angeles, Lyon, Madrid, Marrakesh, Marseille, New York, Oslo, Paris, Riga, Riyadh, San Francisco, São Paulo, Seoul, Shanghai, Stockholm, Strasbourg, Toulon, Vienna and Warsaw.


Eva Nielsen’s paintings are at once cinematic, architectural and geological: fragments of built environment, desolate landscapes and utopian architecture are interwoven in her compositions through superimposed layers of opacity and transparency. Multiple scales and perspectives coexist, negate and displace one another in the dynamic indeterminacy of vanishing lines and fragmented projections, focusing the eye and the mind of the viewer simultaneously on the material density of the painting itself and on the affective matter of contemporary experience.

The artist has consistently focused her gaze on the interstitial zones of suburbia as liminal non-places, remnants of once utopian projections: landscapes in motion seen through obstructed windows and grids, empty playgrounds, fragments of infrastructure, abandoned wooden sheds and secondary homes. Combining screen-printing techniques with oil, acrylic and ink on canvas, Nielsen’s process is one of consecutive fragmentations, concealments and revelations, positioning the final work as both reserve and residue in search for a pictorial fiction capable of holding multiple narratives and temporalities. Rendered through a superimposition of photographic capture, genre painting and techniques of assemblage, these subliminal landscapes offer a kaleidoscopic view over the modernist project in all of its contradictions and achieve a semblance of arrested motion. An alternative history of land use and built environment emerges, touches our most intimate memories and borders on the sublime.

Every year since 1999, the Pernod Ricard Prize has rewarded an artist on France’s emerging art scene. The Prize exhibition is entrusted to a curator or artist who offers a forward-looking perspective on today’s art in France.


The exhibition trilogy THE ARCHITECTURE OF, curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, presents diverse artistic standpoints at the intersection of art and architecture. Each of the three parts links directly to the evolving history of the building, which was originally built as a camouflaged air-raid shelter during the Second World War, then used as a postwar internment camp and finally converted into a residential and office building in 2014. This third and final part of the trilogy, entitled "The Architecture of Transformation", takes inspiration from the recent conversion of the building and looks at architectural transformation in the context of broader social discourses.
