The exhibition Solides Fragiles brings together different generations of artists for whom the intrinsic quality of an artwork lies in its aptitude to resonate with the exhibition space. Environment, atmosphere and light are not merely external factors but are essential elements of the work. As ambient and active substances, they reveal the artwork. Reciprocally, the artwork in turn unveils the space, making us aware of unexpected aspects.
The exhibition will be displayed in the two huge galleries on the first floor of the museum – the beautiful volumes, which benefit from zenithal light –, and will therefore be concerned with the experience of the tangible through the notions of appearance and disappearance, absorption and reflection, as well as vibration and gradation.
