Manfred Pernice: fiat(lux), Villeurbanne, France
This solo exhibition at the Institut d’art contemporain (IAC) near Lyon, features over 50 works by German artist Manfred Pernice, representing more than 20 years of work. The show’s title alludes to 1997 piece, FIAT, which has been combined in a number of ways since and is the first piece encountered by visitors to this show. Pernice creates sculptures using everyday materials such as chipboard, concrete and bricks, frequently combining them with found objects, texts and video which often reference the history of East Germany.
