Tomaszewski, Yan

b. 1984 Seclin, France; lives and works in Paris, France

Module, 2011-2012. Art Fair stand at the Salon de Montrouge with works by Kevin Kaliski (2011), variable dimensions

Proposition pour un musée sur une île déserte, 2009. HD video, 11 min. 44 sec 

Yan Tomaszewski’s work analyses built environments, distilling and playing with their constituent elements. His projects have focused at different scales, toying with the grammar and lexicon of architectural space, as well with the macroscopic processes of designing cityscapes. With Proposition he formulates a proposal for the redevelopment of the iconic Renault site on Île Seguin in Paris. The video follows the artist as he hikes through the ruins of the former industrial site, climbing over rubble, wandering around like an adventurer. All of a sudden the explorer becomes an architect with big plans, drawing the outlines of a generic museum with blue chalk on the sand. In 2011, Tomaszewski reconfigured the space of the Salon de Montrouge, which he re-landscaped from within by lending his 20 m² exposition space to Kevin Kaliski, a 14-year-old collector of artefacts and stories related to the coal mines in northern France. By giving his exhibition module to someone else, he ‘abstracted’ from his position as young emerging artist and from the symbolic value of the booth, in both its artistic and architectural forms. MM
