    Projet pour un musée sans bAtiment, 2017

    Hula hoops
    Various dimensions
    Jérôme Poggi, Paris

    Yona Friedman was born in 1923 in Budapest in Hungary. He lives and works in Paris.

    In partnership with the Rochechouart Musée d’art contemporain and the CNEAI (National Centre for Contemporary Art) in Pantin, he installs a large Iconostase on Avenue Winston Churchill. Iconostases are modular structures or “Space Chains”, which have been developed since the 1960s and - due to a flexible approach to improvisation - can continue to be developed indefinitely. Following London, where the Serpentine Gallery invited him to build a Summer House in 2016 (now installed in front of Windsor Castle), and Venice, where he built a Montagne for the most recent Architecture Biennale, he now erects another pop-up structure made of thousands of coloured hula hoops in Paris, his city of adoption since 1957.

    Thank you to Philippe Chiambaretta Architecte for his support.
