Galerie Romain Rolland, Alliance Française de Delhi
On the occasion of the Francophonie anniversary from East to West, 17 internationals selected artists (INDIA, FRANCE, GERMANY, AFGHANISTAN, SOUTH KOREA, JAPAN) cross their fields of experimentation through the variety of their artistic practice (Street Art, Performance, Installation, Photography, Dance, Video Art, Painting ) to present a cutting-edge program of original exhibitions for the first time in India.
“Man is a social animal” explores Pierre Bourdieu (French sociologist, 1930-2002) in ‘La distinction’, what is the meaning of this quote in a country of over a billion people and made up of 35 States?
Relationships between people, men and women, generations, different social conditions, compared to the environment, this exhibition program seeks to explore these interactions, live acts, links, trade, exchanges, the differences that make us interested in the other as a subject of another possible ‘me’
We cordially invite you to discover the diversity of these emerging artists on the occasion of ‘SOCIAL ANIMALS’ GROUP SHOW, ‘EAST-WEST’-Art Festival.
‘EAST-WEST’ Art Festival is an ambitious project of sharing experiment through the eyes of the next generation artists who, for the time of an exhibition, invite you to discover an alternative view of our world. As Enora Lalet (France) and her ‘cooking faces’, culinary and olfactory performances, where the spectator becomes consumer, Dirk Baumman’s (Germany) squeezed man who is devouring by consequences of actions that he himself instigated, Ema Kawango (Japan) who in her series ‘Salaryman’ introduces us to different aspects of the Japanese society or Green Riot (France) who explores human ecosystems through his green graffiti (recently presented in New Delhi)…and many more artists to discover through the exhibition ‘SOCIAL ANIMALS’ showcased at Alliance Française de Delhi.
