La galerie de la Biennale

Jimmie Durham is showing two works. The first, created for the Biennale, brings a scaffolding and CCTV cameras together in an unexpected pairing of objects with opposed uses and symbolism. The first is gleaming and factory-fresh, the standard equipment you see adorning walls being built or refurbished. The second is usually hidden, being intended to keep us under surveillance. Together they add up to a strange system: who’s building what, who’s spying on whom? Further along Durham offers "Thinking of You": a perch with an aluminium vulture on it. The bird of prey’s silhouette stands out haughtily against the light, playing the guardian of the established order more surely than all the cameras in the world.

Schools

Customised guided tours will run throughout the Biennale at La Sucrière and the Museum of Contemporary Art, tailored to audiences ranging from the last year of nursery school up to higher education.
These experiences allow real interaction between group and mediator.
The discovery trails are devised to sharpen the eye, awaken sensibilities and hone the critical faculties, while exploring the latest work and developments on the contemporary-art scene.

For primary-school pupils...
