David Maljkovic — In Low Resolution
In Low Resolution
Past: October 20, 2014 → January 11, 2015
Palais de Tokyo invites one of the most important Croatian artists, David Maljković, who has chosen to confront us with a present that cannot be defined. He explores the effects of time — be it historical time, technical time, or the time of the work itself — and puts them into action. In such relationships and gaps, the erosion of memory and the corruption of information are exposed, thus confronting the visitor with the wearing down of meanings as well as the destabilisation of feelings.
For his exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo, entitled In Low Resolution, David Maljković has conceived an ambivalent setup. Two plinths have been expanded until they become actual platforms. The platforms obscure the spaces as much as they reveal them, suggesting at once burial and excavation.
The titles of some of his works evoke a temporality “post-”, of long duration, and a hazy historicity : Afterform, A Long Day for the Form, Undated, for examples. Among other procedures David Maljković unfolds reproduction and dissemination techniques by playing off their discrepancies. The exhibition In Low Resolution explores individual memory and the collective imaginary as much as the temporality and representation of the experience.

Inside offers visitors a passage to the interior of the self, for which the exhibition space serves as a metaphor. This immense odyssey, invites us to walk through two floors of the Palais de Tokyo that have been transformed by artists in such a way that, from one installation to the next, we remain constantly immersed in the works.
