Daniel Buren’s work is well known, especially for his white or colourful stripes, and dialogues with its environment. In situ or in movement, they will be exhibited at the Picardie museum, until october 2015.


From June 20th to October 31st 2015 at the Picardie museum in Amiens.

Well known for his work and visual tools – alternatively white or colored straps of wall paper that always have an 8.7 cm width – Daniel Buren has created many pieces that he wants to make communicate with their environment. A rereading of the building or the exhibition site and its architecture through the artist’s work. The Jules Verne circus proposes a show in the three sheds drawn by the artist, the BurenCirque, on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of June at 9pm. In partnership with this event, the museum of Picardie will exhibit the Flèches (arrows), piece of work that is both in movement and in situ, that was created especially for the Grand Salon of the palais des Beaux-Arts of Amiens.

The invitation made by the Pôle National des Arts du Cirque et de la Rue of Amiens to the BurenCirque show (created by Daniel Buren, Fabien Demuynck and Dan Demuynck) is a beautiful opportunity to invite Daniel Buren to create an art piece specifically for the Grand Salon of the Picardie museum.

The common movement that unites circus and museum in favor of a constraint free creation finds its roots in the 90s, with the public orders that were made for Sol Lewitt and Ernst Caramelle.

The in situ and in movement work, the Flèches that were imagined by the artist for the Picardie museum, play with the presentation of the art works of the Grand Salon – the ultimate opposite of the white cube. To the abundance of paintings hung on the walls is added Buren’s work, that has a nomad status, a perpetual movement to it, and the quest for space in a frozen museum.
