Black and White Animals
Curator Chiara Parisi
13 March - 19 June, 2011

The exhibition Black and White Animals, Bethan Huws’s first monographic exhibition in France, presents a broad overview of her work in all the spaces of the Art Center and also in the sculptures’s wood. The welsh artist interweaves her various inspirations from her childhood memories in Wales to her experience on the Plateau des Millevaches.
Bethan Huws also creates a promenade for the visitors. They could stroll on the island while listening to the sounds of the animals recorded during the opening performance made with around thirty black and white animals.
Bethan Huws’s works, in their obvious and first appearance of fun, are the fruit of a long reflection both on her own practice and the work of other artists in the history of modern art.
Bethan Huws’s work has been presented in the most prestigious institutions and contemporary art venues around the world including the Kunsthalle Bern, the Tate Modern or at the Whitechapel Gallery in London.
