BIPEDS, QUADRUPEDS AND EASEL PAINTING (TRIPOD)
In parallel with the exhibition Hunting Scenes in Germany, Rayski / Baselitz, the museum is interested in the relationship between man and nature through the inspiration of an artist of Germanic origin. Born in Germany, where she lived until she moved to France in 1977, Gloria Friedmann uses various modes of artistic expression - performances, installations, painting or sculpture - to highlight the way we perceive our ecosystem. Don't we think of nature as something separate from ourselves, something that we can act upon, but which does not act upon us?

In her live paintings as well as in her sculptures, Gloria Friedmann questions this apparent discontinuity that characterizes modern thinking. By bringing together seemingly incompatible elements of everyday life - natural elements, living animals affixed to products of human industry - she introduces a questioning of our way of life.
For the first time, all the videos documenting the artist's performances throughout the 1990s are presented in one place. A few installations, some of which have never been shown before, complete this committed work.
