N°5 CULTURE CHANEL — 2nd Part!

Jean Cocteau
, le retour de mademoiselle Chanel, Le nouveau Fémina, N°1, Mars 1954.

From 5th May to 5th June 2013


Friday, May 3rd, 2013

Centred on the longstanding ties between CHANEL and the arts, N°5 CULTURE CHANEL, imagined by Jean-Louis Froment, reveals the artistic, timeless and iconic essence of the fragrance CHANEL N°5. Built on a subtle interchange of correspondence, this exhibition elucidates CHANEL N°5 and showcases the connections it has to its era and its avant-garde movements. The works of art, photographs, archives, books and diverse objects featured in the exhibition expose some of the multiple inspirations that fuelled the universe and imagination of Mademoiselle Chanel: whether it be her favourite places or creations of her artist, poet and musician friends such as Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Guillaume Apollinaire, Igor Stravinsky, Francis Picabia and Pierre Reverdy. N°5 CULTURE CHANEL reveals a new vision, both intimate and diffuse of the birth of this unique fragrance.

Gardens always go hand in hand with perfume, and so a garden fittingly provides the introductory setting to this exhibition. This novel garden concept is a poetic evocation of N°5, seen through the eyes of Piet Oudolf who here signs his first project in France. A leading figure in the New Perennial movement, Piet Oudolf’s projects are characterized by their strong pictorial relationship to a garden’s composition and layout. Compositions which play largely on the colors and heights of each species selected, express the particular vision of natural planting which underlies all his creations and in particular, his recent projects including the High Line in New York and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.The walk through the garden leads visitors onward to the exhibition entrance. The garden has been created with the support of CHANEL and will be on display throughout the remainder of 2013.

Report to be continued with the best moment of the exhibition… very soon!

John Giorno “the wall’s shout”

Monday, April 15th, 2013

In the new spaces of the Palais de Tokyo, John Giorno presents a new chapter of his Poem Paintings, so extending his research. On the surface of canvases as well as in the monumental scale of the place, he balances his short, spontaneous, powerful poems. He exploits the very specific material and surface of the walls of the Palais de Tokyo, to stencil large letters, which through an interplay of colors and forms give the words back their full intensity and their expressive strength. With “the words of these drawings” – Thanx 4 Nothing, Life is a Killer, A Hurricane in a Drop of Cum, Just Say No to Family Values, Chacun est une Déception Totale– which in the context of the Palais de Tokyo are isolated and magnified, John Giorno yet again succeeds in stirring the poetic imagination and the benchmarks of writing. Recognized as one of the most influential poets of his generation, John Giorno has constantly made his work spill over from the book. For a few years now he has been creating visual poems entitled Poem Paintings from short fragments taken from his texts. Using a very special typography and layout, these elliptical, enigmatic aphorisms or brief sentences are projected on to the surface of a canvas or a wall. These poetic and visual art experiments thus take the poem off the page, confronting it with new contexts. This visual poetry that makes the acidity of the word resonate in strident colors in turn becomes the pictorial space. The writing now becomes a drawing, and the word becomes an image.

Born in 1936, John Giorno was a major figure in the New York underground of the 1960s, a friend of Andy Warhol(who filmed him sleeping in his famous Sleep, 1963) and Robert Rauschenberg as well as of William Burroughs, Allan Ginsberg and Brion Gysin, leading figures of the Beat Generation. In contact with them, he fed into his poetry using the cut-up method, a montage of found texts, and composed his first sound poems. He also thought up new extensions for poetry to make it accessible to everyone. As early as 1965, he founded Giorno Poetry Systems, a label that has issued around 40 albums. In 1968, he created Dial-A-Poem, a telephone poetry service offering audio poems. Dial-A-Poem 2012 retrospective is currently at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Dans les entrailles du Palais Secret…

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Jeudi dernier, le Palais de Tokyo inaugurait une oeuvre collective au sein de ses coulisses encore méconnues du grand public. Lek, Sowat, Dem189 et tout un tas de trublions issus de la scène graffiti se sont emparés de ce lieu sous terrain, froid et jusqu’alors inhabité. Le résultat est sidérant. La visite se fait sur rendez-vous et en petit groupe ce qui renchérit la dimension mystérieuse de cet espace déjà énigmatique. Les artistes se sont exprimés sur le moindre centimètre carré, du sol au plafond, laissant quelques surprises aux spectateurs les plus observateurs.Ce projet confronte des univers très différents où la violence rencontre quelques notes de douceur qui elle-même s’opposent à des représentations comiques ou ludiques. Les fresques s’entremêlent, se répondent et ne laissent pas indifférents. Alors que certains utilisent la craie ou le crayon, d’autres tapissent les murs de peintures à l’extincteur ou à la bombe. Cette oeuvre, dont on ne connait pas encore l’évolution (disparition ou mutation ?), fait échos à un autre projet de 2010 mené par Lek et Sowat, intitulé le Mausolée. Il s’agit d’une résidence artistique clandestine d’un an dans un espace de 40.000 m2 de ruines d’un supermarché du Nord de Paris. Ces deux artistes mènent en commun la pratique de l’Urbex, l’investissement de lieux en friche, chargés d’histoire – non sans rappeler le Palais de Tokyo, qui les accueille licitement.
