Juergen Teller and Pawel Althamer working on “La Vie simple – Simplement la vie” at Vincent van Gogh Foundation, Arles

Juergen Teller and Pawel Althamer working on “La Vie simple – Simplement la vie” at the Vincent van Gogh Foundation, 35 Rue du Dr Fanton, 13200, Arles.

Conceived specially for the exhibition or rarely seen before in France, the works in La Vie simple – Simplement la vie evoke the different aspects covered under the term “simplicity” – such as alternative forms of living, for example, and humankind’s relationship with nature and animals. The contributions by living artists also serve to deconstruct the myth of the simple life as one of calm and purification. The exhibition includes works by Juergen Teller, Oscar Tuazon, Jonathas de Andrade, Pawel Althamer & Marcin Kalinski, Yto Barrada, Andrea Büttner, David Claerbout, Sanya Kantarovsky, Jean-Francois Millet, Nicolas Party, Dan Perjovschi,  and Vincent van Gogh. 

On view until April, 2nd 2017.
