UNLIMITED BODIES presents an exclusive show of 30 international sculptors. Representative of several generations, these artists will move into the 1000 square meters of the hypostyle room in the Palais d'Iéna for twelve days.

UNLIMITED BODIES explores contemporary scuplture in a one-on-one confrontation with its public, revealing an art that its deeply rooted in the present moment. The scuplture-bodies of the show are of a human dimension and emphasize the formal analogy between scupture and the human figure. The metaphorical and allegorical transformations which happen to the body when it is treated as sculpture are highlighted by the exhibition. The social and political dimensions of human beings are also part of sculpture's ambition. The displayed works directly question the place of the human being in today's world.
