It is in the closed and private garden of Belvédère Calonne de Sappel, located in one of the most beautiful villages of the Jura—Baume-les-Messieurs—that the third part of the exhibition takes place. An ensemble of sculptures by Daniel Dewar and Grégory Gicquel explore nudity in a very literal fashion. However, similar to Hans-Peter Feldmann’s work at La Maison de La vache qui rit, they do so in a form devoid of any sexual provocation or voyeurism, shielded by their reference to sculpture, both ancient and in its more contemporary forms, and whose codes they enjoy subverting with their customary irreverence.
Epilogue – Identities on Display
At the entrance to each of the three exhibition sites, a locker from Karin Sander’s installation Identities on Display offers yet another form of dematerialization and bareness: transparent lockers where clothing and personal accessories appear from individuals whose identities can only be guessed through these sociological markers. Visitors are invited to use these windows as a cloakroom during their visit and thus participate in the unveiling that underlies the entire exhibition.
