Bétonsalon - Center for Art and Research is pleased to present Position latérale de sécurité (Lateral recovery position), a collective exhibition that questions the place of violence and conflict in social and political spheres.

About

Position latérale de sécurité (Lateral recovery position) from 30/01/2019 to 20/04/2019 with Thelma Cappello, Xinyi Cheng, Nathanaëlle Herbelin, Liverpool Black Women Filmmakers & Rehana Zaman, Georgia Lucas-Going, Adrian Mabileau Ebrahimi Tajadod, Dala Nasser, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, Hamid Shams, Patrick Staff. 

The ten artists explore the connection between affects and violence, with an emphasis on how it is embodied in singular and intimate narratives. The exhibition presents new productions, as well as pre-existing works, which have been adapted to the space. It is the first time that the works of Liverpool Black Women Filmmakers & Rehana Zaman, Georgia Lucas-Going, Dala Nasser, Kameelah Janan Rasheed and Patrick Staff are exhibited in France.

Be it social or physical, violence is a controversial mode of discourse that highlights societies and individuals in conflict. Violence marks a break in the dialogue and the establishment of new relationships of strength, domination, and resistance that places its stakeholders in a position where neutrality is no longer possible. Be it violence through class, race or gender, one will always be a victim or an accomplice, but never an innocent witness. Artists aren’t above this relationship but are part of it, giving them a certain degree of responsibility.
