Isa Melsheimer

Del 20 noviembre 2021 Al 27 febrero 2022
Musée d'Art Moderne et d'art Contemporain M.A.M.A.C.
For almost 30 years, her work has questioned modern architecture as well as our natural environment. Isa Melsheimer was born in 1968 in Neuss, Germany. She lives and works in Berlin.

Descripción :

Sculptures, installations, paintings and textile works form a colourful, highly referenced microcosm, through which Isa Melsheimer explores highly topical issues such as the survival of humanity, its relationship to its environment and sustainability.

She works mostly in situ. Her practice crosses painting, embroidery, sculpture and integrates the plant world. Her work questions the complex and evolving relationship between humans and their environment.
Architecture plays a central role in Isa Melsheimer's work, particularly the forms and leading figures of modernism, notably Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier, evoked in the exhibition through the paintings he created in 1938-39 on the walls of Eileen Grey's Villa E-1027 in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin.

For her exhibition at the MAMAC, the artist delved into the rich history of the Côte d'Azur, a territory of experimentation in modern architecture which today leaves a legacy of villas, sometimes unsuspected, nestled in the heart of the hills and palm trees. This intertwined destiny of adventurous patrons, open to the innovations of their time, and innovative architects, intersects with the imagination of an eternal Riviera and its desirable landscapes. The palm tree, although introduced during the 19th century (massive plantations of tropical species date back to the 1860s), at the time of the development of international winter tourism, appears today as an indigenous plant and a symbol of the French Riviera.
The artist proposes a hybridization of this dreamed and fantasized Riviera and the transformation of the shoreline due to the infestation of palm trees by the red weevil.

The contemporary gallery is transformed into a dreamlike, metamorphic landscape in which ceramics of the insect's larva and evocations of modernist architecture intertwine, creating the perhaps fertile ground for a future story.
Many of the works, especially the ceramics, have been specially designed for the exhibition.
