Installation by artist Alicja Kwade on Place Vendôme, curated by Jérôme Sans with the support of Kamel Mennour, Paris and the Comité Vendôme, as part of the Sites de Paris+ program by Art Basel.
A palimpsest of power structures, designed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart, official architect of King Louis XIV, Place Vendôme, taken over by Alicja Kwade’s installation “Au cours des mondes”, becomes the scene of a paradox between human time and cosmic infinity. The artist thus resituates a furtive and fragile humanity seeking its place in an elusive universe.
