(Past) new purchase by Louis-Dreyfus Family Collection
2016-04-13 until 2016-05-12

Exciting news! The Louis-Dreyfus Family Collection purchased two works of my brand new series Stretching Universe this month: Stretching Universe part 1, Coast and Stretching Universe part 3, Reflected Wetlands.

The last six months I’ve worked on my new series Stretching Universe, part…, for which I connect cinematic characteristics with “authentic” landscapes of breathtaking nature. Stretching Universe refers to the scientific fact that our universe is expanding, while at the same time people on earth have become less tolerant towards each other and in this respect the world thus seems to be shrinking due to narrow-mindedness.

from 4 november 2014 – 11 february 2015
Two compositions by Lukas Hemleb, selected works from the collection, based on a play from Jon Fosse “Je suis le vent” (I am the wind)
artists: Gilles Barbier, Christian Bonnefoi, Patrick Corillon, Olivier Debré, Edith Dekyndt, Christoph Girardet, Robert Groborne, Roni Horn, Lucas L’Hermitte, Odile Levigoureux, Henri Michaux, Bernard Moninot, Gabriel Orozco, Jean-Pierre Péricaud, Carmen Perrin, Ulrich Rückriem, Joel Shapiro, José María Sicilia, Renie Spoelstra

The wind gathers, rising up suddenly.

Two men on a fragile boat, a trip to sea – a few drinks, a bite to eat – when one of them decides to push on to the open ocean. Suddenly there they are: among the distant islands, the threatening fog and gathering swell of the sea, bound together on an odyssey into the unknown.

Jon Fosse’s work includes novels, poetry, essays and books for children. He is one of the most produced playwrights in Europe and his plays have been translated into forty languages.
