Hotels-Paris.co.uk - See Dennis Oppenheim Videos in Paris

Fans of Dennis Oppenheim can see a collection of his videos
during their stay in one of the fine hotels Paris has to offer.
Running from October 5th to 31st 2010 at the Musee Rodin, the exhibition showcases
four creations by the American artist, with the focus of the display being the hand.
Each one of the videos shows a different situation in which Oppenheim has involved
his hand, with one seeing him crush a fern, another shaking hands "compulsively"
and a piece that sees the body part covered in natural elements, the venue observed.
"At the crossroads of land art, conceptual art and corporal art, the work of Dennis
Oppenheim (born in 1938 in the USA) questions the process of artistic creation and
the mark of the artist's gesture upon it," added the organisers.
In a passage quoted on Oppenheim's official website, Eleanor Heartney describes how
his work was at different stages heavily related to the body, machinery and finally "the triumph of irrationality and chaos".
The cost of entering the museum is €6 (£4.90) and this pass will allow visitors to
see the videos in question.
Opening hours are from 10:00 to 17:45 local time every day, except for Mondays when
the art space is closed.

venue on +33 (0)1 4418 6110.
