• CHRISTIAN BOLTANSKI – ANIMITAS - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
From November 11, 2017 to March 31, 2018, the Espace Louis Vuitton München is honoured to present Animitas, by French artist Christian Boltanski.

Since the 1970s, famous French artist Christian Boltanski has developed a highly personal oeuvre that largely consists of photographic and light installations combined with conceptual art. 

From November 11, 2017 to March 31, 2018, the Espace is honoured to present Animitas, one of his most ambitious recent projects: creating outdoor installations in deserted places, using bells and haikus to echo the configuration of stars on the night of his birth: September 6, 1944. 

Conceived in the framework of the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s “Hors-les-murs” program, this exhibition displays two video installations from the Collection, Animitas (2014), shot in the desert of Atacama (Chile) and Animitas (Blanc) (2017), filmed on Quebec’s Île d’Orléans (Canada), and brings together, in a meditative atmosphere, four pieces questioning the passing of time.
