Vincent Tavenne’s exhibition was scheduled to open on March 27th. Global events made this impossible. After two months of lockdown Radio Athènes opens again with a solo exhibition of a French artist who lives in Berlin. Organized by his former art dealer and friend Giti Nourbakhsch currently living in Athens, the exhibition is an elegy to inner spaces, magical objects inspired by the natural world, alternative ways of approaching sculpture and dwellings.
The titles he selects for grouping his work— “Univers”, “Stratosphère”, “Ether”, “Beginning”, “Black Hole”— suggest a reflection on the origin and development of the cosmos. As he notes: “My interest in the cosmos, the universe and so on, gives me the pleasant feeling of just being a tiny crumb of a bigger picture. That’s nice. All is changing, unstable at all times.”
