For his first solo exhibition in France, British artist Ian Kiaer is proposing a reinterpretation of the art centre’s architecture, designed by Aldo Rossi and Xavier Fabre in 1986–88 and built on Vassivière Island in 1989–91.
In a group of new works all designed specifically for the centre, Kiaer reconsiders the visionary aspect of the building, drawing a parallel between the thinking of Aldo Rossi and the utopian projects of 19th-century architects like Claude-Nicolas Ledoux and Étienne-Louis Boullée.
