Life is a movie, BEN and his guests at 109
Editions In Fine is publishing, as part of “Nice 2019, L’Odyssée du cinéma”, the catalog of Ben’s exhibition at 109 “La vie est un film” (June 15 – October 19).
The exhibition brought together more than 500 works by Ben as well as those of his 64 guests (poetry, painting, drawing, installation, video, performance, sculpture, graffiti).
Constructed according to the sections established by Ben in his exhibition, the catalog offers a retrospective reading of the artist’s work, presenting successively his historical and contemporary career as well as his collection, of which 92 works were presented for the occasion. A double-page spread is also devoted to each of the artists, including their answers to the questions posed by their host (What are the limits of art?, What are the limits of truth?, What are the limits of cinema?) as well as a view of their work in situ.
