Third Mind at Palais de Tokyo


The exhibition Third Mind, curated by Ugo Rondinone, is what he considers a “way to harmonize exhibition of various works was to imagine, by a mode of self reflection, the global concept of organic chaos”. Basically means everything and nothing at the same time, giving way to an interesting assortment of artistic endeavours.

With many random abstract sculptures, installation rooms with nothing notable. The works I found the most compelling were the paintings Madonna, and Birch Trees by Joe Brainard, the photos installation CarPark by Sarah Lucas, and the illuminated room by Valentin Carron.
Carron space seemed to me an homage to Jesus, Dan Flavin and Louise Bourgois spiderwebs. Though the crosses look heavy and overbearing they are actually made out of Styrofoam. Genius!!!
