Fantasies and superstitions in “Un monde in-tranquille”

(Meymac, France)

“Un monde in-tranquille” opens today at Centre d’Art Contemporain Meymac and is the third part of a series of exhibitions that explores contemporary art creation on the themes of utopia, dreams, burlesque and disenchantment of the world.  This year, the exhibition features 60 artists from all over the world (view the complete list below), including Maria Laet, nominated for PIPA Prize for the fifth time this year, and Pedro Motta, a PIPA Prize nominee in 2012 and 2013.

The group show presents works produced in different media –photography, painting, installation and video– and explores fantasies and superstitions in an ironic, parodic and offbeat tone. The resulting atmosphere is a dominant feeling that the universe is filled with a disturbing strangeness.
