Straddle the line between form and function

Past: June 17 → July 25, 2015

With Hadrien Gérenton, Micah Hesse, Rachel Koolen, Irina Lotarevich, Julien Meert, Loup Sarion

“The artists taking part in this group exhibition blur the boundaries between form and function, they act with transformations: not as “metamorphosing banality” but as the objects’ decline to banality, their power to mobilize and generate worlds. The object is thus reduced to what it is as it is, up to the lowest point near reality: this damaged life that we want to hide under a veil of decency. Here the return of a flat ontology is at stake, where sacred and secular, real and virtual, backstage and onstage would be indifferently embraced without hierarchy or value, though not exhausting its capacity to fascinate. (…) For all, this is not about working against and because of a material basis which would regulate our behaviors, but with it and thanks to it. The artists present here pure logistics from these diverted looks, what makes things what we envisage them to be, acquiring their “essence” by the singular use of what we can make with it.”
