Christian Boltanski is considered as one of France’s most famous and influential living artist. On the occasion of the gallery’s 12th anniversary, Marian Goodman, Paris, has invited Boltanski to present his latest work. Conceived as a complete installation, Faire-part is a meditation on disappearance and the passage of time. Boltanski subtly weaves the different temporalities of his life and work to produce two large installations: a labyrinth of veils suspended from the ceiling and a contemplative piece composed of a video projection and a bed of hay and cut flowers.
