Catalan Pavilion by Martí Anson
The model of this “Catalan Pavilion,” built by the artist Martí Anson at the center of Palais de Tokyo, is borrowed from a holiday home constructed by the artist’s father himself in the 1970s. This statement, a contribution to the workingman’s autonomy, becomes a sculptural project, both an homage and a pledge. The construction of the Pavilion will stop once available funding is exhausted, highlighting the limits of the institution and questioning our society capitalist systems of production.
On view at Palais de Tokyo through September, 9th 2013.
