Crater-Miguel Fernandez De Castro-Lydia Ourahmane


Working across a variety of mediums including sculpture, installation, photography and video, artists Miguel Fernández de Castro and Lydia Ourahmane both generally address place and landscape, usually the sites of their respective origins; Fernández de Castro’s the Sonoran Desert in Northern Mexico and Ourahmane’s the regions surrounding Oran, Algeria. Some of these sites are visible here through the video in the main gallery and the photographs in the back gallery.

SONG

As an exhibition, Song carries a particular tempo, closer to the time of reading than the time of looking. Alejandro Cesarco creates rhythm in his work by incorporating silences and withholdings: here the moving image works are presented sequentially, gently introducing a pace and flow to the installation and immersing the viewer in an aesthetic that the artist has elsewhere characterized as “muted melodrama.”

A Circuit presents a group of interlocking works by Sam Smith that circle around two Modernist villas built in the 1920s: Le Corbusier’s Villa Le Lac (1923-24) and Eileen Gray’s E.1027 (1926- 29). The video and sculptural works dissect components from the architecture of both waterside houses, utilizing their plans as a means of uncovering the design convergences and history of conflict between the two creators.

Au sein de la pratique de Charlotte Moth, les réflexions héritées du conceptualisme et des travaux in situ nourrissent une forme joyeuse, poétique et atmosphérique à l’opposé de la rigidité de leur apparence initiale décrite par l’histoire de l’art. (© photo: Aurélien Mole)

“In every of their songs – besides fancy clothes, money and trips – they rap above all else about their routine hard w ork. All day everyday standing at the street corner, selling, making calls, turning the street into an office ; stranded couches into office chairs ; dealing is like working at the factory ; it comes down to helping the family ; in the summer going away on holiday then coming back and starting all over again.” — Antoine Donzeaud, October 2016

THE FUTURE OF DRY

« The Future of Dry
, (Le Futur du Sec) première exposition personnelle de Laura Porter à la galerie Escougnou-Cetraro, s’ouvre sur des images tirées d’une brochure distribuée à des sujets dans le cadre d’études scientifiques visant à quantifier leur consommation de graisse à partir de standards de mesure. Outre des figures schématiques numérotées, on y trouve notamment des représentations abstraites d’« amas » (mounds) de différentes tailles. Elle a choisi de reprendre ces figures et de les marier à d’autres quantifications, comme une pièce de monnaie-étalon permettant d’évaluer la taille réelle de plantes sur des photographies (Penny Perspective) ou un fauteuil divisé en boudins (Like Farming). » Valentin Lewandowski
