JENNIFER CAUBET | Festival Le Nouveau Printemps de Toulouse

Hors les murs 31 May 2024 - 30 June 2024

Galerie Jousse Entreprise is pleased to announce Jennifer Caubet’s participation in the second edition of the contemporary art festival Le Nouveau Printemps de Toulouse from May 30 to June 30, 2024, curated by Alain Guiraudie.

Where do we scatter the ashes of the old world?

Jennifer’s Caubet looks at space, both in the occupation and representation of it, and explores it through sculpture, installations and drawings using a formal approach not far from minimalism. Imagining territory as a resource, Jennifer Caubet scoured demolition sites in Toulouse, and selected that of the headquarters of Airbus. For her sculpture, she took railings, ramps and doors, all elements that guided, protected or held back bodies within the built environment.  By transforming, displacing and redeploying those materials in another context, Jennifer Caubet creates for us a mazelike sculpture that visitors can grasp or even negotiate, gliding through,  settling in and perhaps playing with perceptions until they in turn feel the journey to which the artist has given shape: from ruin to utopia, from bygone world to new emancipation.

With the patronage of La Caisse des Dépôts and the participation of the firms Cassin, Métamo, Création Métallerie Toulousaine (CMT), Chronolaq and Zinq Toulouse.
Materials are sourced for re-usage as part of the European LifeWaste2Build program by Toulouse Métropole.
This project benefits from funding by the Ministry of Culture as part of its program to support art commissions.
