Rendez-vous : sortie de mon corps

Past: October 10 → December 7, 2013

The contemporary era forces us to put the importance of the fairytale of the West into question — even more, it forces us to rethink the subject and its construction.

Meeting point: beyond my body probes into a territory in which new subjectivities appear, by imagning a multiple body, an object containing History, and at the same time a surface on which history is inscribed.

In this exhibition, the body becomes a territory spoken through by a multiplicity of voices; a place where struggles of the past, forgotten narratives and actions reappear; a paradoxical meeting point between biography and fabulation, between personal history and the projection towards unknown bodies. Instrumentalised or constrained by social norms, this possessed body suddenly explodes beyond its boundaries, revealing its presence beyond its physical existence.

It imposes itself as a necessary heritage of modernity’s dystopias, but also, paradoxically, as the only territory where geography and History are shared. It is this body that comes out of the dark, strangely familiar but also penetrated by narratives that are not its own, a witness and actor of contemporary history, a history in the process of inventing its form.
