Exhibition. Mehdi-Georges Lahlou & Candice Breitz
This event has already passed
From 20 April to 24 September 2023 at the Centrale for contemporary art.
For this exhibition, envisaged as a space of celebration and encounters, Mehdi-Georges Lahlou presents a whole new body of works including sculptures, drawings, engravings, reworked archive photos, as well as installations and videos. At the Centrale, the artist continues to explore the representation of violence and its consequences on current geopolitical issues. He draws on war archives and ancestral history, as well as on his own experiences, both intimate and fictional.
Mehdi-Georges Lahlou has invited the artist Candice Breitz as a guest artist. A selection of Breitz's videos points to commonly conveyed identity clichés, reminding us that our identities are not set in stone.
