EVA NIELSEN & MARIANNE DERRIEN - INSOLARE - LAUREATES OF BMW ART MAKERS
BMW - OFFICIAL PARTNER
Each year, the bmw art makers program nominates an artist/curator duo to lead an innovative project in the visual arts and its implementation in space.
With INSOLARE, Eva Nielsen explores climatic and geological phenomena, bringing back the spectra of both rural and industrial reality. She crosses her road-trip trajectories with those of the territories at the gateway to Arles, where the Camargue begins. In a visual confusion, the artist creates a play of resonances between photography, silkscreen and painting. Contrary to any official cartography, the paths taken trace a subjective geography tinged with hydro-feminism. The sedimentation of these solar and liquid landscapes gives rise to a horizon of experience, a feminine gaze where body and water connect.
In collaboration with BMW, Eva Nielsen and Marianne Derrien have created a scenography with the help of Ghosthouse that minimizes the environmental impact of their project.
