Tyson / Monet. Unexpected conversations

For over thirty years of a diverse journey from sculpture and installations to painting and graphics, British artist Keith Tyson, Turner Prize winner, has researched, analyzed and questioned reality. His mission, which is not limited to one artistic style, is to challenge art and appeal to the public.

In the 1990s, when he was still a student, Tyson invented The Art Machine, a conceptual device that allowed him to expand the boundaries of the artist’s traditional role as creator.

Tyson’s refusal to consider the artist as the sole creator of the original work of art and the belief that the artist, on the contrary, is only an entity that coexists in a confused and interconnected form with the various elements that make up the world, gave him the right to participate in "Unexpected dialogs"in which twice a year contemporary artists are invited to surprisingly respond to constant work in the collection of the Marmottan-Monet Museum.

For this order, Keith Tyson chose two completely different works by Claude Monet, "European Bridge, Saint-Lazare Station" and "The Rising Sun, Bras de Saint, Giverny".
