Rachel Labastie : “In the air, flying machines”, Hangar Y, Paris Meudon


Rachel Labastie is invited by Art Explora to Hangar Y’s inaugural eastern explosion.
The exhibition pays tribute to the site’s primary function by choosing flying machines as its theme. Taking as her starting point the universal human fascination with flight and the many inventions that have made it possible to achieve this goal, exhibition curator Marie-Laure Bernadac, in collaboration with Blanche de Lestrange, has focused on how these means of elevation and transportation in the air, and their transformations over time, have inspired artists. While the beginnings of these innovations can be found as early as the Renaissance in Leonardo da Vinci’s sketches, and the advent of the first flying machines in the 19th century inspired the artistic avant-garde of the early 20th century as much as many later raw artists, the exhibition also brings together some 50 works of contemporary art produced over the last three decades.
