Private screening “The Messengers” by Ivan Argote
Mk2 Madame cinéma - Palais de Tokyo24.10.2014 #art
A few months after winning the Audi talents awards in the contemporary art category (chaired by Ora-ïto, Thierry Marx, René-Jacques Mayer and Xavier Veilhan), Ivan Argote presented his film ‘The Messengers’ at the Palais de Tokyo MK2 cinema.
This project shot in “white villages” in Colombia and Spain was made possible thanks to the Audi talents awards program, which accompanies the winner throughout the year by giving him the means to achieve his artistic process.
Result? A sublime video work in which performances, musical composition and sculpture mingle for a purpose in the form of winks: to establish a parallel between what the discovery of America represented for Europe (economically, politically) and the current situation (decline of Europe and emergence of former colonies).
Ivan Argote is represented by the Perrotin gallery.
