The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain is honored to present a major solo exhibition of American artist Bruce Nauman’s artwork, the first in France in over 15 years. For the occasion, the artist made a careful selection of recent works never before shown in France, along with some earlier installations, created from a wide array of media that he has explored throughout his career. This exhibition reflects his continued interest in linking his works to their environment and intensifying the audience’s physical and emotional experience of his pieces. The immersive works on display were thus chosen for their resonance with the Fondation Cartier building, and emphasize the contrast between the transparency of the ground floor and the enclosed lower level.Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain is honored to present a major solo exhibition of American artist Bruce Nauman’s artwork, the first in France in over 15 years

The Exhibition

Presented for the first time in France at the Fondation Cartier, this thoughtful selection of multimedia installations, sound and video works, and sculptures reflects the multifaceted nature of Bruce Nauman’s artistic practice. The artist plays with notions of transparency and immateriality on the ground floor, where the spaces and their surroundings are seemingly almost empty, but contain three powerful recent works. In the garden, the sound piece For Beginners (instructed piano) (2010) invites

visitors to listen to the musician Terry Allen as he plays the piano. The score is composed from a set of instructions by Nauman, which direct the placement of the pianist’s hands on the piano keys.

The artist’s most recent work, Pencil Lift/Mr. Rogers (2013), is on display in the large gallery. This video is presented in dramatic proportions on a large LED screen, allowing the images to almost float in space. A continuation of his exploration of hands and physicality in previous projects, Pencil Lift/Mr. Rogers transforms simple actions – tricks performed by fingers and pencils in the artist’s studio – into ambiguous signs and optical illusions, playing with sensations of tension and balance.

In the adjacent gallery, visitors hear Nauman’s voice tirelessly repeating, “For children.” Despite its simplicity, the meditative sound piece For Children (2009) is unexpectedly complex, as various associations emerge related to play, education, and pushing mental and physical limits. For Children has been adapted by the artist especially for this exhibition, and will be premiered here in both English and French.

This exhibition, specifically created for the Fondation Cartier, provides the opportunity to discover some of Bruce Nauman’s most striking works of the last two decades. It also reveals the often unexplored parallel between the artist’s abstract video and sound works, which focus on his exploration of the human voice and body, and his monumental installations, rich with spiritual and environmental references.
