13th Biennale de Lyon
La Vie Moderne (Modern Life)
Place: La Sucrière, 47/49 Quai Rambaud – La Confluence – Lyon 2e
Interesting and informative guided tour, but only an hour, so just time to skim the surface:
1. (1st level): Mohamed Bourouissa: "The Hood". Photos on car hoods, during his time in Philadelphia.
(1st level): Mike Nelson: "A7, Route de Soleil". Anything but sunny. Burnt out, torn and smashed-up tyres. A bit depressing.
3. (2nd level): Magdi Mostafa: "The Surface of Spectral Scattering" : Cairo represented in lights.
4. (2nd level): Michel Blazy: "Pull Over Time": displayed on x 2 balconies and "Running Al Fresco"
5. (Ground floor): Andreas Lolis: "Permanent Residence". 50 Marble elements put together to resemble a garden shed. Cardboard and polystyrene aspect.
