From  25 October, 2014 to 22 February, 2015 the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris presents two captivating projects to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its activity.

Musings on a Glass Box
Diller Scofidio + Renfro
In collaboration with David Lang and Jody Elff.

Musings on a Glass Box, is a new installation created  for the occasion by the internationally interdisciplinary design studio Diller Scofidio + Renfro.
The Fondation Cartier building, designed by Jean Nouvel, will be used by the designers as raw material for their work.  Musings on a Glass Box is a complex work occupying the entire ground floor of the Fondation Cartier, where a disturbance in the ceiling will trigger a surprising reaction. The result is an immersive environment, including an integral acoustic component by American composer David Lang and sound designer Jody Elff, that works with the building’s architecture to raise questions about transparency, perception, and one’s relation to space.

Les Habitants (The Inhabitants)
An idea by Guillermo Kuitca featuring Francis Bacon, Vija Celmins, Guillermo Kuitca, David Lynch, Artavazd Pelechian, Patti Smith.

The Argentinean painter Guillermo Kuitca presents an installation that illustrates the history of the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain and its unique way of establishing relationships between artists and artworks, inciting encounters of many kinds, and making connections from one project to the next over the years. Occupying the entire lower level of the Fondation Cartier, this work is entitled Inhabitants, borrowing from the film of the same name by Armenian filmmaker Artavazd Pelechian. Through this work created especially for the occasion, Guillermo Kuitca plunges visitors into a pictorial and sound environment, building an intricate network between his own art and that of David Lynch, Vija Celmins, Francis Bacon, Patti Smith and Artavazd Pelechian.
