This unprecedented exhibition stems from the power, radicalness and the artistic affinities of two major figures of our contemporary age, Roni Horn and Felix Gonzalez-Torres.
Developed around four iconic artworks from the Pinault Collection, exhibited for the first time to a French audience – "Untitled" (For Stockholm) (1992) and “Untitled” (Blood) (1992) by Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Well and Truly (2009–2010) and a.k.a. (2008–2009) by Roni Horn – this exhibition emphasises the notions of doubling up, duality, complexities within repetition, and identity at work in the artists’ respective artistic practices.
Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Roni Horn, both conceptual artists, established radical practices with often minimalistic means that contributed to a redefinition of the exhibition as a medium for including the viewer and had a major influence on an entire generation of younger artists. They strive to grasp the inexpressible, the immeasurable.
