I Am Your Father!
10.12.2017 – 14.10.2018
How do we give meaning to our actions, our judgements and our place in the world? The analysis carried out in 1979 by the French philosopher Jean-François Lyotard reminds us that this question, which has long been examined by the “Great Narratives” (Myths, Religions, Ideologies, etc.), remains unanswered still today; postmodern man lives and evolves in an era where direction and meaning have become problematic.
However, and since human beings are always in search for some meaning, it is not surprising to see that some current fiction is taking the place of the myths and religions of yesteryear. This abstract observation is at the very heart of the new exhibition at the Maison d’Ailleurs – “I Am Your Father!” – an exhibition which, thanks to the original approach of the thirteen international contemporary artists invited to Yverdon-les-Bains, deals with the aptly named modern myths, and in particular the most famous of all: George Lucas’s Star Wars.
