Artavazd Pelechian - The Nature
Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain
261 Boulevard Raspail
The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain is pleased to announce that it is presenting the world premiere of La Nature, the new film by filmmaker Artavazd Pelechian. Commissioned in 2005 by Fondation Cartier and ZKM Filminstitut in Karlsruhe, it is the culmination of fifteen years of work of a director whose filmography is as infrequent as it is celebrated. The exhibition includes an unprecedented dialogue between La Nature , his first film in twenty-seven years, and The Seasons, one of the director’s historic achievements—an ode to peasant life dating from 1975. It shines a light on this major figure of the seventh art, who remains too little known to the wider public, and pays a fitting tribute to a lyrical and sometimes prophetic body of work.
