Contenu

In Automn 2020, the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Lyon hosts Edi Dubien for his first solo museum exhibition.

The artist has been making a name for himself over the past number of years with his accomplished drawings of an impressive psychological depth: in particular, his representations of taciturn children and teenagers. Their gaze is absent, elusive, at times direct, but always imbued with emotion and humanity.

Often accompanied by animals, translated into sculptures for this exhibition, conceived as a garden, these young figures subtly embody some of the fundamental questions connected to the construction of one’s identity and the freedom of self-expression. Particularly in today’s world, both public and private, where violence, whether physical or mental, has been normalized or rendered banal.

Curator: Matthieu Lelièvre

More information

Texte En savoir plus : Gauche

The Musée d’art contemporain de Lyon is pleased to host the first solo museum exhibition of artist Edi Dubien. The exhibition is conceived as a love song dedicated to nature, praised through a bucolic and poetic narrative. L’homme aux mille natures gathers sculptures, shown in relation to hundreds of drawings and large paintings.

Texte En savoir plus : Droite

In this ensemble, composed by the artist, visitors find several recurring themes from his previous pieces, including the figures of the young man and the child, sketched both vigorously and delicately, with a look often absent, yet immersed in the world. These young boys, sometimes inspired by photographs, evoke hundreds of faces of individuals who may have existed and appear frozen in time.
