The Chimney presents Collision by French artist Kevin Rouillard, his first solo exhibition in the United States. Inquiring on objects’ relationship to context and value system, Rouillard’s artistic practice resembles that of a researcher, an excavator or an archeologist. He collects, classifies and assembles objects he encounters to redistribute and liberate them in order to explore their dynamic potential.

Inside The Chimney, Rouillard covers the walls with his latest series of “Extrait –Tôle Choc” that constitute assembled puzzle-like shipping barrels originally used between France and Cap Verde to transport commodities. The space becomes a duplicate site where different geographies and times coalesce - the existing walls of a 20th century power station intersect the commercial sphere of a now global Africa.

Support for this exhibition is provided by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States.
