FAIT OU DÉFAIT, C'EST IDEM
CURATED BY BENJAMIN KLEIN
JULY 12 2018 - AUGUST 25 2018
Galerie Deux Poissons is delighted to open our fourth exhibition, Fait ou défait c'est idem. The intention of this show is to explore the shifting boundaries in between individual and collective aesthetic activity and stability - allowing for the expression of an individual’s artistic voice, but also creating a platform for art forms that bring those voices together into visual corollaries to singers performing in duets, choirs, and medleys as well as solos. A representation is always an index of and to something else, as well as an incarnate thing-in-itself: these artists create in a self-aware manner, remaining in touch with the different possible perspectives on the meaning of their activities, with respect to context as well as creativity. The act of drawing is a central concern of this show, and the theme of ideas of “making” and “unmaking” being in flux. Far from constituting a certain dichotomy, these acts can exchange places and blur into one another easily depending on an artist’s procedure and notions. Both in technique and in content this exhibition demonstrates a range of ways to understand that “Fait ou défait c'est idem".
