Changing Hands: Objects on the Move is a symposium curated by Akram Zaatari at Centre Pompidou, Paris.
The one day event examines how objects change function, value and status over time, the nature of the museum, and the idea of perpetuity. Participants include Bénédicte Savoy, Jean-Christophe Bailly, Amie Siegel, Rayyane Tabet, Patricia Falguières and Avi Mograbi.
The event features Amie Siegel’s ‘Provenance’, (2013), a three part installation focusing on an emblem of mid-century design – the chairs, desks, and furniture designed by Swiss architects Le Corbusier and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret for the controversial modernist, post-colonial city of Chandigarh, India.
After an introduction by Zaatari, Siegel will screen and discuss the elements of her work ‘Provenance’.
