Abstract

Early Photographs from Billingham's series 'Ray's a Laugh' were included in the group exhibition 'Children of Saturn', 5th October - 15th December 2019, Musee D'Art Contemporain De La Haute, Chateau Rochechouart, Vienne, Austria. The exhibition comprised 85 newly donated works to the permanent collection from the Agnès Rein Collection and represents a significant addition to the museum’s holdings. The gifted works were varied in medium and typology and comprised 19 photos and photo installations, 12 paintings, 7 videos / films, 12 sculptures and 2 conceptual pieces that can be reactivated in situ. They ranged in period from the early 1990s to the present day and besides Richard Billingham included the following artists - Kasper Akhøj, John Armleder, Michael Assiff, Taysir Batniji, Francis Baudevin, Richard Billingham, Peter Coffin, Philippe Decrauzat, Sam Durant, Angus Fairhurst, Matt Franks, Jonah Freeman, John Issacs, Mirak Jamal, Elke Krystufek, Abigail Lane, George Henry Longly, Andrew Mania, Michael Manning, Marie-France & Patricia Martin, Matthew McCaslin, Anne Neukamp, Manuel Ocampo & Chris Oliveria, Albert Oehlen, Daniel Pflumm, David Renggli, Joe Scanlan, Gitte Schäfer, Anne-Marie Schneider, Seton Smith, Georgina Starr, Martine Syms, Barthélémy Toguo, Wawrzyniec Tokarski, Gillian Wearing, Marnie Weber, Jane & Louise Wilson, Graham Wilson, Paul Winstanley, Dena Yago and Thomas Zipp The three main themes of Landscape, history and imagination were adopted from the start as a guide to acquisition policies and before this new donation hosted a permanent collection of 350 works by international artists plus an exceptional reserve of 700 works by Dada artist Raoul Hausmann and archives of more than 20,000 related documents and ephemera. Seen in the context of the three main themes of Landscape, History and Imagination, the additional donated works introduce 51 artists who were not represented in Rochechouart up until now. The majority of these artists are absent from public collections elsewhere in France and open up new vistas on recent Anglo-American and German contemporary art. The donated works were displayed throughout the castle galleries.
