The Dislocations exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo brings together fifteen artists of different generations and origins (Afghanistan, France, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Libya, Myanmar, Palestine, Syria, Ukraine) whose work is marked or informed by the experience of exile, of being torn between here and elsewhere, between past and present. Their practices combine ancestral know-how and contemporary technologies, humble gestures and poor materials. The aim is to pay homage to the vital necessity and intensity of artistic creation through fragmented narratives that combine displacement, imprisonment and war with resilience and reparation.
