MATHIAS BENSIMON AU MUSÉE D’ORSAY – PASTELS XXL
March 16 – June 29, 2023
On the occasion of the exhibition “Pastels, de Millet à Redon“, Mathias Bensimon created in front of the visitors alongside seven other students of the Beaux-Arts de Paris, a vast panoramic pastel drawing ten meters long. This live performance will take place in the Seine gallery (Level 0) until June 29, 2023, at the rate of one session per week.
The students of the Beaux-Arts de Paris will intervene on a paper support (224gr/m2), in a panoramic format 10 meters long by 1.50 meters high.
From this original intervention, a real dialogue with the works presented in the exhibition, will be born, over the weeks, a giant pastel allowing the public to appreciate all the varieties and subtleties of the uses of this medium.
This performance will take place every Thursday evening from March 16 to June 29 from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and on Saturday May 13 during the European Night of Museums.
