To celebrate the opening of the Théâtre de Verdure at the end of the summer, the CACC has invited Guillaume Aubry, an artist whose theoretical research focuses on the sublime as found in the sunset. His work is rich and varied, including films, performances, video pieces, and photos, as well as sound recordings of the sunset. During the confinement, the artist collaborated with a mixologist (expert in mixing drinks) to create a series of cocktails that visually evoke the sunset.
It is with this latest poetic, visual and gustatory performance that he will come to perform a few days before the fall equinox. The lucky audience of the Théâtre de Verdure will be offered Equinox Sunset, a cocktail evoking the sunset…
BIOGRAPHY OF GUILLAUME AUBRY
An artist and architect, Guillaume Aubry studied at the Ecole d’Architecture de Paris-LaVillette (DPLG), at the University of Tokyo in Japan and at the Beaux-Arts de Paris (La Seine post-graduate program).
He has presented his work at Mains d’œuvre, at the Beaux-Arts de Paris, at the Cité des Arts, at the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard, at the Friche de la Belle de Mai and at the Casino du Luxembourg…
He has also been invited to participate in events such as Nuit Blanche in Paris (Satellite program), the Lyon Biennial, the Lulea Biennial in Sweden, the Salon de Montrouge and Jeune Création. Today, he is an artist-researcher for the RADIAN PhD in creation, preparing a thesis on the aesthetic experiences of sunsets. As part of this doctorate, he did a research residency at the Villa Medici in Rome (Medici program) in 2019 which led him to design a stage adaptation of “The psychoanalysis of fire” by Gaston Bachelard at the Théâtre de Nanterre-Amandiers. The show “What noise does the sun make when it sets on the horizon?” was created in November 2020 but has not yet been presented to the public.
