Last week to catch Our Labyrinth, a performance piece by Lee Mingwei for the 1st annual MOVE events at Centre Pompidou, Paris, on view from June 2 - 26, 2017! As visitors walk among the galleries, a dancer will sweep a mound of rice through the space, along a labyrinthine path of their choosing. This dancer may encounter obstacles along the way, but will navigate these silently and mindfully. This project is a gift from the performers to the visitors, the providing of a "pure" space, both physically and spiritually, as they explore the sacred space created by the projects.

An artist discussion on the amateur in dance, performance, and contemporary art will take place June 23, at 7PM.


Lee Mingwei (b. 1964, Taiwan) is a participant in this year's 57th Venice Biennale: Viva Arte Viva, curated by Christine Macel. Two of his projects, The Mending Project (2009-ongoing) and When Beauty Visits (2017) are on view in the Arsenale and Giardini, respectively. Lee Mingwei works in relational aesthetics, utilizing performance and participation to interact with an audience, often evoking the ephemerality of daily life or exploring unexpected moments of beauty within the human condition.  Both of these projects explore the relationships formed through interaction, and allow the viewer to generate their connections and conclusions through a personalized experience.

Jane Lombard Gallery is excited to share that today Michael Rakowitz was announced as a winner of the next commission for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square, London.
The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist is a project begun by Rakowitz in 2006 that attempts to recreate over 7,000 archeological artifacts looted from the Iraq Museum during the war or destroyed in its aftermath. For the Fourth Plinth Rakowitz will recreate the Lamassu, a winged bull and protective deity that stood at the entrance to Nergal Gate of Nineveh from c 700 B.C. In 2015 it was destroyed by ISIS along with other artifacts in Mosul Museum. The Lamassu will be made of empty Iraqi date syrup cans, representative of a once-renowned industry decimated by the Iraq Wars.
