Limits is a relative term. Like beauty, it is often in the eye of the beholder." Chris Burden Gagosian Paris presents works by Chris Burden, his first exhibition in Paris in more than twenty years. Since the 1970s, Burden has channeled the daring spirit of his early life-threatening performances into sculptures that embody technical feats on an imposing scale. Toys (figurines, train sets, Erector parts) are used as the building blocks for expansive scale models, cities, and battlefields, while actual vehicles (ships, trucks, and cars) are suspended or set in motion in surreal and improbable ways. The exhibition will be on view until July 24th at Gagosian Paris, 26 Avenue de l'Europe, Le Bourget
