The exhibition brings together videos, installations, and drawings by Bertille Bak, an artist originally from Arras, who was a resident of the Pinault residency in 2020. She is known for embodying in her work a blend of picturesque documentary and poetic fiction, focusing on local themes, popular and community cultures, as well as mining heritage. Symbolic of the beginnings of her artistic practice, Bertille Bak revives the video ‘Faire le mur,’ shot in the late 2000s in the housing estate known as ‘cité n°5,’ where her family lived.
From demolished mining communities to displaced populations and children deprived of their innocence, POWER CORON then shifts towards recent projects: with the exceptional installations ‘Mineur Mineur‘ and ‘This Mine is Mine‘, she revives the current reality of child labor in the mines. Without idealism or compromise, the exhibition tackles themes of disappearance, inequalities, and injustices. Each artwork presents a new language of protest, closer to a grand fair than an assault.
“LES GALERIES DU TEMPS”
As part of the Nouveaux commanditaires initiative led by artconnexion, the museum’s neighbors have called upon artists Bertille Bak and Charles-Henry Fertin to create a work connecting the museum to their neighborhood. This participatory artwork involves all stakeholders in the Lens region and offers visitors the opportunity to participate in a collective creation workshop.
This project has received support from the Cercle Louvre-Lens.
