This summer 2018, La Kunsthalle Mulhouse hosts Negative Knots , a monographic exhibition by Étienne Chambaud. For this project, the artist builds a device that ties the ruins of a zoo cage and a series of sculptures, collages, paintings and video.


Negative Knots is a quasi-fractal exhibition. It is composed of several strata of exhibitions that share the same space or compete for it. Neither a simple sum nor a subtraction of one by the other, they suggest a more complex combination which does not reveal itself a priori. They act as many parallel dimensions, sometimes facing one another, sometimes overlapping, merging or coinciding, creating a common space or conversely mutually excluding one another and coexisting without any shared boundaries.

The main focus of Étienne Chambaud's work is an "Ecology of Separations", an on-going research on frontiers and borders between forms, objects, gestures and discourses. In his work, various spaces, scientific fields, modes of capture, conservation and of transmission merge, overlap or intersect.
