JÉRÉMY GOBÉ AND ANDREA MASTROVITO
Curator: Fanny Robin, artistic director of the Fondation
The Fondation Bullukian supports creative acts wrought in the complexity of encounters between artists and scientists. Its art centre on Place Bellecour in central Lyon helps foster the emergence of novel and plural forms, conducive to an evolving culture.
For the 15th Lyon Biennale, artists Jérémy Gobé and Andrea Mastrovito metamorphose the Fondation Bullukian’s spaces with engaged and immersive projects.
Jérémy Gobé’s work directly addresses the issues of our age. His artistic practice translates a vision of art connected to contemporary society. Following a residency at the Saint-Gobain Weber France company, he creates Anthropocène for the garden of the Fondation Bullukian: a work that connects contemporary art, science, industry and sustainability. Jérémy Gobé shows us a new and virtuous ecosystem where art is a vehicle for, by turns, raising awareness of today’s challenges and inspiring tangible solutions.

LE MONDE EST UNE INVENTION SANS FUTUR
Andrea Mastrovito is an artist whose output spans diverse media: drawing, performance, video, sculpture and installation. For the Fondation Bullukian, he has devised four large, site-specific installations that immerse the spectator. Drawing on his reflections on landscape, its displacement and shifts, Andrea Mastrovito offers a rereading of the present, characterised either by the melancholy of an inescapable fate or by the enchantment of a life that is always born out of its own destruction.
