Why you will love it?

Certainly, you have already seen pictures of the most ludicrous Japanese inventions: shoes with tiny umbrellas, chopsticks with a built-in fan… Well, we have a right to question them. Are these products inventions or works of art? This is the idea behind the exhibition “Le Bord des Mondes" (At the Edge of the Worlds), which will be exhibiting the craziest of creations until May 17th. A surprising visit to the limits of art. Enjoy! Parisianist

Our Insiders' Article

Le bord des Mondes

Stones stacked up defying gravity, tears seen through a microscope, whistling as a language, a robot that imitates human facial expressions, “swiss army gloves”. These are only a few of the curiosities, technologies, and inventions on display at the Le Bord des Mondes exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo. But do these objects have a place in a modern art museum? In other words, is it possible to create works that are not works of art? The opinions are split. It’s up to you to go see these curiosities and decide for yourself.

Theo Jansen

The exhibition, which is currently underway in the basement of the Palais de Tokyo, opens with a beautiful defiance of the laws of gravity. Before your eyes, a woman stacks up stones in a very surprising manner. Other curiosities of the first part of the exhibition include Espinosa’s mist-traps, a passionate architect’s spider webs, and original clothing creations. But the most impressive work is one of Theo Jansen’s beach creatures, an immense structure that sways peculiarly in the wind on Dutch beaches.

Kenji Kawakami

After passing through a small walkway through the raw and gutted part of the Palais de Tokyo, you will find yourself in the second part of the exhibition. It is here that the inventions of the Japanese Kenji Kawakami are on display. Upon seeing these curiosities, almost everyone will have the same reaction: “That’s funny, but not totally idiotic!” You will also find there a robot hit by reality, sculptures made of hair, and a trick for making an imaginary escape from prison.

Conclusion

The exhibition Le Bord des Mondes is highly recommended for everyone, even those who do not enjoy contemporary art. Because here, the exhibition deals little with artists. It is more about inventors or people who never really intended to create works of art. No totally bizarre concepts, no artists with overgrown egos, just works of art that will not fail to fascinate you or make you smile.
