From 12 October 2019 to 19 January 2020, the South Korean artist Kimsooja will surround the City of Poitiers on the occasion of the first edition of Traversées
, a new international artistic and cultural event, closely linked to the destiny of a major building, the Palace of the Dukes of Aquitaine, and its neighbourhood, historical and heritage heart of the city. Kimsooja welcomes other artists, with whom her work resonates, and invites them to look at the city and create new perspectives. From India to Morocco, via South Korea, Peru or Japan, Traversées / Kimsooja
is an invitation to a kaleidoscopic trip around the world, punctuated by installations, concerts and performances. Text in English and French. Published to accompany an event at Poitiers, Palais des ducs d'Aquitaine taking place between 12 October 2019 and 19 January 2020.
