(The Forges Courtyard)
14 May - 23 September, 2018 Open 11 AM - 7 PM
Luma is pleased to announce the commission of a new iteration of the site specific large scale installation entitled DO WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY by conceptual artist Rirkrit Tiravanija and Frankfurt based architects Nikolaus Hirsch and Michel Muller on view this spring and summer at the Parc des Ateliers, Arles. The project was previously presented under similar forms at the first Aros Triennial in Aarhus (Denmark) in 2017 and Art Basel in Basel (Switzerland) in 2015.
The installation conceived as an outdoor shelter made of modular bamboo and steel is an extension of the project The Land, a model of sustainable development initiated in 1998 by Tiravanija and Kamin Lertchaiprasert near Chiang Mai, Thailand.
The work in Arles will be comprised of an open-air kitchen, an herbal garden and a communal dining area where visitors can eat, drink, and relax in a convivial atmosphere, while engaging in discussions and investigations about practices of sustainability, the geopolitics of food, and building technologies in the era of the Anthropocene.
