AGENCY - ASSEMBLY (GESTURES OF THE MIND)

- November 7th - December 13th 2014 - Opening : November 6th 2014 - 6 to 9 pm

La Verrière - Fondation d’Entreprise Hermès - Brussels

Curated by Guillaume Désanges

Agency is the generic name of a Brussels-based collective initiative that was founded in 1992 by Kobe Matthys.

For Assembly (Gestures of the mind), Agency calls forth a selection from its list of things, speculating on the question : “How can commons get included within art practices ?” Many practices get classified as common. The "craftsmanship" or design of useful articles, no matter how satisfying, get exempted of copyright protection as works of art. Intellectual property law defines useful article as “having an intrinsic utilitarian function that is not merely to portray the appearance of the article or to convey information.” The craftsmanship or design of a useful article is considered artistic only if, and only to the extent that, such craftsmanship or design incorporates pictorial, graphic or sculptural features that can be identified separately from, and are capable of existing independently of the utilitarian aspects of the article. A selection of things will convene an assembly at Gestures of the mind in order to bear witness to this question.

Le côté obscur de la forme -

- September 28th 2014 - 08:30 pm

In the continuation of "A History of Performance in 20 minutes", "Vox Artisti, his masters’ voices", and "Signs and Wonders”, three experimental conferences interrogating, in ideas and in acts, some recent history of art, "The Dark Side of the Form" is a new project. The idea is to explore, from a recent position of art critic and curator, the hidden, repressed or even ashamed part of the mechanisms that brings someone to contemporary art. For that, I made 5 sessions with a psychoanalyst, asking her to adapt her dialectical practice, folded only on one topic : a past and present specific relationship to contemporary art. A relation that has always been and remains problematic, indefinable, irresolute. It tackles questions of fascination and repulsion, fantasy and disappointment, social and intellectual ascension, will and sexual projection ; but also love, astonishment and cruelty.

Dans la suite de "Une histoire de la performance en 20 minutes", "Vox Artisti, la voix de ses maîtres", et "Signs and Wonders", trois conférences expérimentales interrogeant, en formes et en actes, certaines histoires récentes de l’art, "Le côté obscur de la forme » est un nouveau projet. Il s’agit d’explorer, à partir d’une position récente de critique et commissaire d’exposition, la part occulte, refoulée voire honteuse, d’une relation spécifique à l’art contemporain. Dans cette perspective, j’ai réalisé cinq séances avec une psychanalyste, focalisées sur mon rapport passé et présent à l’art contemporain. Un rapport qui a toujours été et reste problématique, ineffable, irrésolu. Il y est question de fascination et de répulsion, de fantasme et de déception, de volonté d’ascension sociale et de projection libidinale ; mais aussi d’amour, d’étonnement et de cruauté.
