Château La Coste is delighted to present an expansive exhibition of works by artist Conrad Shawcross. Situated at three sites spread across the grounds, the works on display explore the artist’s continued relationship with geometry and philosophy, physics and metaphysics. United in their aesthetic, the abstract works appear akin to scientific models, further pushing Shawcross’ enquiries into notions of time, entropy, order and disorder. For Shawcross, an aesthetic of the designed, scientific and the rational serves as a device to cloak more poetic and philosophical themes. Grappling with complex theories the exhibition challenges the very building blocks of our reality and pre conceptions.
From the 1st of March to the 19th June 2020

This exhibition is a perambulation into space and time of our memory. It presents works from different periods that we have united together for their links to each other and to the space. They are imaginery construction inspired by the real archaeological sites that we visited during our lifes of “archeologist, architects”. We are since the beginning of our carrer passionated about archeology, cities in ruins and through it about architecture as we were feeling the close relationship between archeology, architecture, memory and psyche. That’s how we understood that architecture in ruin or not could be a metaphore of the memory and psyche. The purity of the space created by Renzo Piano led us to select white architectural works, color chosen to evoke the idea of Utopia, whites architectures itself in a white architecture, which is a mental space.
From the 5th of April to the 4th of June

A multidisciplinary artist working in video, photography, installation, drawing and embroidery, Mounira Al Solh is invited to take over the chapel of the Pablo Picasso national museum in Vallauris. The artist addresses the challenges of displacement on the scale of Europe and the Mediterranean, and in particular the crisis of the Syrian refugees, at the origin of several series of works since 2012.
Combining collective and personal stories, Mounira Al Solh’s work draws on collected stories, as so many ways of evoking resilience in the face of contemporary conflicts. Her work has recently been exhibited at Documenta 14 in Athens and Kassel (2017) and in solo exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago and at Mathaf in Doha (2018).
