« Une seconde d'éternité »
« Une seconde d’éternité » brought together some fifteen artists whose works are able to generate a space-time.
They are displayed throughout the Bourse de Commerce spaces, composing a landscape that enters into dialogue with the architecture, from the darkness of the lower level to the light of the upper galleries. This exhibition is inspired by the oeuvre of Felix Gonzalez-Torres and his work’s openness to tangible emotions, through a certain aesthetics of disappearance, and to new forms of connection and aes-thetic experiences.
With works from the collection: Larry Bell, Marcel Broodthaers, Miriam Cahn, Nina Canell, Liz Deschenes, Ryan Gander, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Roni Horn, Pierre Huyghe, Gustave le Gray, Sherrie Levine, Philippe Parreno, Anri Sala, Rudolf Stingel, Sturtevant, Wolfgang Tillmans, Carrie Mae Weems.
Curator: Emma Lavigne, Chief Executive Officer of the Pinault Collection with Caroline Bourgeois, curator to the collection, and Matthieu Humery, photography curator to the collection.

We have done everything to hide it from ourselves. We have done every-thing to get rid of it. Yet there is nothing purely mathematical about time. It is not the result of the interplay of abstract and immaterial quantities. There is no need to use numbers. There is no need to use clocks.
