From April 21-May 28, 2017, The Chimney presents a tall action is not a height, the solo exhibition of American artist Autumn Ahn, curated by Anissa Touati. Ahn’s performances operates similarly as a structuralist rite, both symbolic and disturbing. In her installation, she defies external and internal realities. The artist makes light of the movement of the spirit - the thoughts' creation and interactions, the sentiments and other psychological states and ultimately of her own body. Ahn walks on water and draws an ephemeral scar by making a mark on time: a visual alphabet.

Anissa Touati is an independant curator based in France, USA and Mexico. She works closely with Marc Olivier-Wahler, Chalet Society’s co-director in Paris. Touati has realized numerous exhibitions in unusual places from public spaces, disused buildings to outdoor sites.  She tries to forge links and interactions between artists and the exhibition space.
