MoebiusFrom October 12, 2010 to March 13, 2011, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain will present MOEBIUS-TRANSE-FORME, the first important solo exhibition in Paris devoted to the work of Jean Giraud, alias Mœbius. A legend in the world of comic strip art, a master of draftsmanship, an inventor of extraordinary forms, Mœbius has continuously moved beyond the conventions of his discipline. The theme of metamorphosis, which runs throughout the artist’s entire career, will be the central focus of this first major exhibition devoted to his work. Replete with shifting landscapes and characters that are continuously changing, the drawings of Mœbius explore the limits of the unconscious, revealing an imaginary and fantastical world. Through the often sudden and disturbing transformation of a character, Mœbius opens up the possibility that the forms in our environment may not be as stable as they seem.

Moebius 1Realized in collaboration with Mœbius Production, the exhibition at the Fondation Cartier will present original notebooks, comic boards and paintings as well as new, previously unpublished drawings. The exhibition will also feature two new films screened for the first time at the Fondation Cartier: a 3D animated film co-directed by Mœbius and BUF Compagnie and based on his comic strip La Planète Encore as well as a 52-minute portrait of the artist realized specifically for the show by Damian Pettigrew and Olivier Gal. Through a spectacular exhibition design showcasing over 300 drawings, the visitor will be provided with an unprecedented opportunity to discover the work of a highly influential artist who has continuously pushed back the limits of form in search of new horizons.

Guests of all ages can now feel what it’s like to be shrunk to the size of a toy and to become literally part of the Toy Story universe in Andy’s backyard. Guests venturing through the over-sized landscaping of Andy’s yard discover three play areas, each featuring an exclusive attraction. With Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop, Guests are invited to join Andy’s Little Green Army Men in a simulated fall from the sky. Guests of all ages can climb aboard Slinky Dog on Slinky Dog Zigzag Spin as our four legged friend chases his tail. And in Andy’s most dare-deviling set up, RC Racer will give a feel for what it’s like to zoom along a Hot Wheels half-pipe track.
