About the publication

With texts by Pascal Rousseau, historian of contemporary art, and Olivier Schwartz, virologist, as well as two conversations with the artist: one with anthropologist Bruce Albert and the other with philosopher Emanuele Coccia.

From December 8, 2022 to April 30, 2023, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain presents an exceptional exhibition devoted to the French artist Fabrice Hyber. Bringing together some sixty paintings, including almost fifteen works produced specifically for this exhibition, Fabrice Hyber creates a school open to all hypotheses and all forms of learning at the heart of the Fondation Cartier. The catalog published for the occasion shows a large selection of paintings created by the artist. It also reveals the Valley, a forest he has sown in the Vendée department in the 1990s that has become today a work of art in itself. Through numerous photographs of the Valley and Fabrice Hyber’s studios, archival images, texts, and interviews, the reader has the unique opportunity to dive into his personal universe. Finally, videos of Fabrice Hyber presenting his paintings are accessible through QR codes reproduced in the book.
