Press Release

Hall 2.0, Booth D5

Hall 2.0, Booth E4

The Unlimited sector will feature works by three artists from Galerie Lelong & Co. who each encourage and foster a human connection in unique ways: Alfredo Jaar, Yoko Ono, and Barthélémy Toguo. Curated by Gianni Jetzer, Unlimited provides a platform for large-scale projects that transcend the classical art-show stand.

Viewers are invited to participate in Yoko Ono’s Mend Piece (Galerie Lelong version) (1966/2018). The installation is composed of fragments of broken cups placed on a table for the audience to mend with tape, string, glue, or other materials; the metaphor of mending and healing are close. Alfredo Jaar will present A Hundred Times Nguyen (1994), which employs multiple images of a young girl that Jaar met in a detention camp for Vietnamese refugees seeking asylum in Hong Kong. In a media landscape saturated with images, Jaar hopes that the concentration on the humanity of an individual can communicate a larger story. In 2014, 20 years after the Rwandan genocide, Barthélémy Toguo created Rwanda, 1994, to offer an image of hope and peace returning. The painting features a proliferation of vegetation that conveys the energy of indestructible life always capable of regeneration.
