Benoît Maire à l'atelier Ozenfant
For its new edition in partnership with Villa Medici, the French Academy in Rome, Genius Loci is presenting in Paris, in a historic landmark of modern architecture, a series of "Roman" works by the interdisciplinary artist Benoît Maire.
The exhibition, curated by Marion Vignal, comprises a selection of paintings, sculptures, furniture designs and a video created by Maire during his residency at Villa Medici between 2021 and 2022.
These works will be on view at the Ozenfant House, built in 1923 by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret for the painter Amédée Ozenfant, and open to the public exceptionally for this event.
Conceived as a journey from Rome to Paris, the exhibition evokes a reflection on measurement and time, echoing Maire's artistic process as well as the essence of this unique building, a veritable manifesto of the "new spirit" in architecture.
