Festival Young Creation

«En Être», is the title of the 70th edition of the Jeune Création association, which will take place from September 12 to 26, 2020. More than 190 artists of all generations take part in this exhibition circuit in four venues: the Cabane Georgina in Marseille, the Espace Niemeyer in Paris, the Jeune Création gallery in Romainville and the Thaddaeus Ropac gallery in Pantin.

?En être" (In Being) echoes desire, simplicity and doing things together. The responsibility of today?s world belongs to us. This ritual recreation, rich of 72 years of history, will sing the joys and anxieties of the world, its deaths and its rebirths. We will be fairies and we will be witches. With bits of string, it is possible to weave, create and gather what is scattered. The history of art, uncertainties, testimonies, transmissions, attempts, successes, mistakes confront dreams and reality. In what, with whom, how and for what reasons? The future will tell us.

For the occasion, Vincent Lemaire will present two installations at the Thaddaeus Ropac gallery that will connect the human body to the infinitely large and the infinitely small. The last three days of the exhibition (September 24, 25 and 26), visitors will be invited to participate in two creative protocols and to produce with the artist the extension of the works presented.
