Artist's gallery

Paolo Uccello may well have been the first Renaissance artist to give form to sound with his Battle of San Romano, which sounds like the galloping and neighing of horses and the clash of spears. Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, the new "Paul the Birds" of our technological Renaissance, made his name by entrusting mandarin birds with the task of triggering electric guitar chords by landing on them. Fighting against the sea of decomposition, he offers to contemplate trees that move and hum at the French Pavilion in Venice, before transforming the Palais de Tokyo in Paris into a televised trip to the beyond.
