Kevin Rouillard, "Le Grand mur" - Winner of the Sam Prize for Contemporary Art 2018
February 21 - May 17, 2020
Essentially sculptural, Kevin Rouillard’s practice is set in a process of recuperation. His large assemblages of metallic panels and flattened canisters are a way to evoke the world of workers and the circulation of goods. The winner of the Sam Art Prize in 2018, he conceived his exhibition in Mexico, during a journey that allowed him both to encounter pre-Colombian sculptural imaginary and the political reality of a country sharing a frontier with the USA. Entitled the “Le Grand Mur”, this new project makes this singular context resonate with his recent production.
