The podcast Creators facing Climate Emergency proposes conversations between artists and scientists to create new narratives, raise awareness and act in the face of climate change, using artists as mediators. For this second conversation of the 2022 season, the foundation invites the visual artist Adrien Vescovi and the philosopher Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent for a dialogue about our relationship to time.
These conversations also propose new ways of producing and disseminating art in the face of our fragile environment and accelerating technological change.
Thursday 27 January from 6 pm to 7 pm CET
Guests: Adrien Vescovi, artist, and Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent, philosopher.
Moderated by Stefano Vendramin, curator in art related to ecology.
Adrien Vescovi reexamines with a contemporary perspective the idea of a free-standing canvas and painting at an architectural and natural scale. He assembles temporalities, using colours sourced from the air, earth and fire. His painting is a form of sewing. Chance is his ally. In 2022, his work will be visible in a solo exhibition at the gallery Albarrán Bourdais in Madrid, at the Casino du Luxembourg, at the Yvon Lambert bookshop in Paris or in the streets of Ghent in Belgium for a project with 019 Ghent. In 2021, he participated in the 22nd prize of the Fondation Pernod Ricard and had a solo exhibition at the contemporary art centre Le Grand Café in Saint Nazaire, France. He lives and works in Marseille.
