Inspired by the documentation modality used to describe an art work through its details, "Assiette ou Virage et Dérapage" is a project anchored to the idea that the Minor Circumstance of such images often exhibits the most material and fulfilling aspect of the object, letting visual pleasure have the best on the imaginary / imaginative concept of the artwork.
Obliged to relate to a restricted space, cynically sensual already, seven artists dialogued with the exhibition space cannibalizing an aesthetic that we all know and which we has been influenced and sometimes distracted in these years.
The hateful, common, coarse, and deplorable mistakes that inspired this project are essentially two:
How does an installation view reveal of the project, the curatorial thought, and the gallerist ambitions?
And how often does it only show the depressing interior designer ability of the curator and the proud complacency of rampant estate owner?
And when it comes to the artist: sure to choose from the dozens of photos of details the one that can best express the concept of the work, he is instead distracted as a child by the twinkle of a chromed metal, excited by the curve of a a form that reminds us some car advertising .
The art works are the center of any topic that interests art, but they are often misunderstood and then chosen for the most simplistic and approximate reasons.
The operation is simple and mocking. The viewer is made responsible.
Will he stop on a superficial and consolatory reading? Let him. Everything is in order and prepared for this to happen, because he does not bother too much and convinces himself that everything is fine.
Perhaps he would prefer to feel cuddled by those images he recognizes and loves. That he needs.
