Bianca Bondi
Bianca Bondi nourrit son travail de sciences naturelles et d’histoires, de culture religieuse, ésotérique ou magique. Avec une approche multidisciplinaire souvent spécifique au site, sa pratique implique l’activation d’objets. Les matériaux sont choisis pour leur potentiel de transformation ou leurs propriétés intrinsèques. En résulte des surfaces étranges et nouvelles.

For his first solo museum exhibition in France, Theaster Gates has initiated an entirely new project that explores social histories of migration and interracial relations using a specific episode in American history as his point of departure to address larger questions of black subjugation and the imperial sexual domination and racial mixing that resulted from it.

Comme à son habitude, Folkert de Jong utilise des sources historiques mais pour mieux les manipuler dans une histoire politique contemporaine. La manipulation est aussi bien formelle que symbolique.

THE EVIL EYE

altblog – Clement Cogitore
Avec l’installation The Evil Eye conçue pour le Prix Marcel Duchamp, Clément Cogitore aborde une relation aux images et aux grands récits fondée sur l’emploi de vidéos issues des banques d’images (Getty, Shutterstock…), grandes pourvoyeuses de formes destinées aux fins publicitaires et télévisuelles les plus diverses. Entièrement réalisées à partir d’images pré-existantes et tournées sur fond vert, les scènes anonymes de The Evil Eye opèrent une sommation de postures stéréotypées, de gestuelles génériques adaptables à l’envi sur des décors ajoutés en postproduction. En bas de l’écran, les numéros de référencement des images apparaissent tels des codes-barres.

Carte Blanche to Tomás SaracenoON AIR is an emerging ecosystem that hosts a choreography of multiple voices belonging to human and non-human universes and in which works reveal common, fragile and ephemeral rhythms and trajectories linking these worlds. ON AIR is comprised of the myriad presences, animate and inanimate, that meet and cohabit within it.

THE AESTHETICS OF CONTAMINATION

altblog – Anouk-Kruithof
La pratique d’Anouk Kruithof s’inscrit au croisement de la photographie, de la sculpture, de l’installation, du photomontage, des livres d’artistes, du texte, de la performance, de la vidéo et des interventions dans l’espace public. Son langage plastique et son utilisation peu orthodoxe des matériaux brouillent les contextes, produisant des associations déroutantes.

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)

Text by Sonia Dermience : She must be around 18. Her name is Casha. The baby, not yet walking, is eating crisps. In front of me in the train Warsaw-Vienne. The guy in front of me, Polish as well, started to speak right away as well about clubs next to Gare du nord in Brussels, where he works on construction sites… Sunny frisk November day, 7 hours train as a romantic old fashioned way of traveling. They left the cabin and came back. He is divorced with two kids, he showed me photos with his ex wife. He is going back to the village. His car is in Belgium, a black Audi i saw in photos with his tattoos on his breast, symbols of success and sexyness. He is cute. Young. You can feel cosyness in this cabin with them and one other girl who does not speak as she must feel ashamed of a possible closeness with unexpected encounters, random people. She speaks to give me wifi and i realize she just doesn’t want any contact with the others, who she must see as lower class. The young mother has a beautiful voice, elegant, dressed in black. The baby just made a mess with another pack of crisps that was next to my seat. He is sitting on the floor trying to eat them. Now strolling around with the mother who seems happy as much as the baby, both warm people. Looking through the window i think about contraception and abortion. The land is flat. Small trees. I type with one finger on my phone. Thinking about that photo i want to make of Jean-Pierre pissing on a car at night with the flash. A naked woman riding the bronze crocodile in Botanical garden would be too political maybe? Emeline could also just sit inside the car at night. A kind of Vogue magazine reportage flash night, colors, characters questioning belonging and possession of private spaces and people. This guy in front of me should be part of the shoot. He wears a green Adidas jacket with jeans perfect short hair shaped in the back. He just asked the name to the other girl i understood replied Sandra. She doesn’t want anything to do with a too young mother and a construction worker. The Guy just made a sign to Casha to go back to toilet but i don’t know if he mimicked blow job or cigarette. She puts lipstick on. He tries to sleep. The baby is learning English with the phone repeating ‘Hello, how are you?’ Then record her own voice repeat and laugh to finally switch to heavy techno. This pink pullover makes me look fat in association with that wool leather brown skirt. The grey leggings are ok with the boots and skirt, still the top ruins the ensemble. If i put lipstick they will think i want to have sex. Or that i am an old wicked lady. The baby is dressed in pink like my lipstick, that is very comforting, soft pink named rouge pure couture. I put it on and feel already so full of reassuring intimacy in this cosy warm cabin full of sun and beautiful people. I have to pee. I realize i am with the sexiest people of the train… Even if i ate lots of cakes in Warsaw and have my menstruation, i think about sex when i close my eyes. The guy is asleep. The baby as well. Sandra as well; can’t see Casha making photos of her pack of crisps. First stop: a city of houses and blocs, no one would choose to live here if you are not from here and still half of Polish population believe they have a problem with foreigners. Police in the train. Police is back. Two young guys.
