In 2011, the Centre Pompidou-Metz invited Daniel Buren to take over one entire floor at the museum designed by architects Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines. Daniel Buren proposed two installations: “La ville empruntée, multipliée” (“City Borrowed, Multiplied”) and “Cabanes éclatées, imbriquées” (“Cabins, Exploded View, Nested”). Each questions, in its own way, this new museum space. Daniel Buren and Hélène Guenin, deputy manager of Programs give new directions for thinking about how we view these works. Laurent Le Bon, director of the Center Pompidou-Metz tells us how the artist rebounded to create a third proposal in dialogue with the architecture of the Center.
