Autres habitants

On the occasion of the Cities theme week of the Dubai World Expo, Art Explora is exhibiting the works of eight internationally renowned French artists. Questioning the place of ecosystems in the urban environment, these works are presented simultaneously in several urban spaces, in Dubai as well as in Paris, in order to share the artistic program of the World Expo with as many people as possible.

Artwork presented in front of the French Pavilion at the Dubai World Expo. 



Eat me is a protocol and contextual work. On local, seasonal, exotic fruits a poem by Audre Lorde is industrially engraved, like a tattoo. The engraving alters the fruit, which carries a message beyond its own finitude - to ripen, rot, die. It traces the genesis of a memory in the manner of an offering and becomes a place of perishable memory.


Biography of the artist

Gaëlle Choisne was born in Cherbourg (France) in 1985. She lives and works in Paris and London. The artist grapples with the contemporary concerns of disasters, exploitation of resources, and the vestiges of colonialism in her artworks, which combine esoteric Creole traditions, myths, and popular culture. Her work has been exhibited on numerous occasions, in France and abroad, and notably at the Beirut Art Center for the thirteenth Sharjah Biennial (2017), at the CAFA Art Museum, Beijing (2017), or the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2020), and will be shown at the Triennial of the New Museum from October 2021. She was the 2021 winner of the AWARE Prize. Gaëlle Choisne is represented by the Galerie Air de Paris (Romainville) and Nicoletti (London).
