JEF GEYS PARTICIPATES IN ‘TO THE MOON VIA THE BEACH’

Posted in To the moon by gvd on May 22, 2012
At the invitation of the LUMA Foundation, twenty internationally recognised artists will come to Arles this summer to produce new work at the Roman Amphitheatre in the centre of the city. This important historical site will host an exhibition under constant transformation. At the start of the exhibition, visitors will encounter an arena covered in tons of sand. Over the course of the exhibition, the terrain will slowly be transformed from a beach to a moonscape by a team of world-class sand sculptors.


This unusual exhibition offers a foretaste of the future programme of the new centre for production and exhibition dedicated to contemporary culture that the LUMA Foundation will build at the Parc des Ateliers in Arles. This connection is also manifested in the re-use of the sand brought into Arles to create this shifting landscape. After the exhibition, all the sand will be moved to the Parc des Ateliers, where it will be accessible to the general public as part of a temporary playground before being re-used once again in the foundations for the building designed by Frank Gehry.

For this new collaboration Philippe Parreno and Liam Gillick (artists) together with Tom Eccles (Bard College, New York), Hans Ulrich Obrist (Serpentine Gallery, London), Beatrix Ruf (Kunsthalle Zurich) and Maja Hoffmann (LUMA Foundation) have conceived an exhibition for Arles that takes visitors to the moon, via the beach.
