Eric Baudelaire, A Flower in the Mouth, film still, 2021.

The filmmaker and artist Eric Baudelaire (*1973 in Salt Lake City/US, lives and works in Paris/FR) will present the whole range of his work at Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen. Pressing issues of the present, such as redistribution and the climate crisis, form the thematic bracket for the new productions of the artist, who was awarded the ‹Prix Marcel Duchamp› in 2019. Baudelaire is particularly interested in the creation of images through artistic language that are capable of illustrating complex systems. For the exhibition he plans to develop a machine that makes statistical data on economic realities sculpturally visible in the space. To this end, a film installation documents the mechanical processing and cold chain of the industrial production of cut flowers.

The exhibition by Eric Baudelaire is supported by Jubiläumsstiftung der Mobiliar Genossenschaft.
