Ismaïl Bahri: Instruments

Jeu de Paume

13 Jun 201724 Sep 2017

The Tunisian artist is having its first major show within an art institution. The artist mainly works with photography and video art, taking inspiration from simple things of everyday life.

On this occasion, he presents a selection of his principal works along with two new works. This set of eight video works reflects the main themes running through his oeuvre; such themes as fundamentals, duration, scale, and transformation, but also visibility and invisibility, mystery and solving the mystery. The exhibition seeks to develop a movement of progressive enlargement, starting with the intimate and leading outwards to landscape, light and a certain sort of abstraction.
