"Never consent to be completely comfortable with your own certainties” - Michel Foucault
An “underdog” is a person who is usually expected to lose. The two Berlin-based photographers Laure Catugier and Maycec have exchanged their forgotten and residual pictures and taken a fresh look at these unused images: which can be considered losers. Indiscernible, unidentifiable, unstable, their meaning is cloudy. This is exactly the definition of noise: a rumble that exceeds logic.
Underdog is a dialogue to create free connections between unpublished disruptive images. If these connections seem dissonant, it is not because of the pictures themselves: it’s rather because our eyes are sometimes too accustomed to seeing only certain types of pictures, and our ears are too accustomed to hearing only certain types of sounds. The two artists disturb the familiar form and borders of their work through the publication of these photographs: they show a desire never to be comfortable with their own certainties.
This hybrid project is the meeting of different noises, the underdog pictures, sound art performances, and the curious visitors for whom the creation of something never comes without destruction or dissemination.
Underdog is a rumor that comes up from the ground.
