From 14 January To 11 February 2023


From 14 January To 11 February 2023

Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche invites you to discover, during a workshop visit, the artworks of Sangam’s exhibition , of the artist Subodh Gupta, with Les Récrés of Le Bon Marché. 

For this new exhibition at Le Bon Marché, a host of metal objects are assembled to take the form of a traditional Indian pot and a seal, both hanging on either side of the central escalator. On the second floor, an incredible hut made entirely of age-weathered kitchen utensils invites the visitor to an aesthetic and meditative break.

The theme? Sangam! Like the sound of copper pots clashing. Sangam! Like the point where the three most sacred rivers of India meet. Sangam! Like a place of confluence where visitors from all over the world meet around a universal language, art.

À propos de cet événement

Indian contemporary artist Subodh Gupta presents his iconic sculptures made of metal kitchen tools. Les Récrés offers children a guided tour of the exhibition with a mediator, then an artistic interpretation using recycled items. A reflection of subverting the use of everyday objects, their accumulation, and their symbolic load.

Who is Subodh Gupta ?

Exhibited around the world for over 20 years, Subodh Gupta is one of the leading figures in contemporary art. The aluminium and stainless steel that make up the kitchen utensils become the raw materials for monumental installations, whose brilliance fascinates the artist. His work is based on many stories, both personal and universal.
