The Last One Before The Break
Friday September 21, 2012, 7–10pm
Nicolas Carrier (FR), Jolien Kramer (NL), Flora Moscovici (FR) and Yuya Suzuki (JP)
The Last One Before The Break is a one night exhibition that brings together the work of Duende’s current artists-in-residence with that of invited artists Jolien Kramer and Flora Moscovici. The exhibition explores our relations to imagination and fiction through minimal gestures. From installations that shift the architecture of this old school to videos that play the memories of childhood again, this exhibition presents new works created for this context of a summer break.
Nicolas Carrier (FR) directs videos that explore the possibilities of fiction during dead times. He is inspired by isolated and abandoned places that he uses as set and where he creates a moment for boredom, roving and games. By the use of minimal actions and repetitions performed during a light and brief shoot, he introduces some poetry and a new temporality cut from our quotidian world.
The work of Jolien Kramer (NL) revolves around the following sentences: When there is no space, no landscape, then what does this data mean? What surrounds me is what I am. I want time without time. Distance from our own thinking makes us always alone. I was so deep in my time that I now feel misplaced without me.
For the exhibition in Duende she will show installation of paper and drawing, that consumes the space.
Flora Moscovici (FR) transforms places via site-specific interventions that are based on how a given space’s architectural particularities sparks her imagination thereby instigating a fantasised space. She creates a second skin of colour for the architecture, playing with movement to express emotions and imagine the walk of the visitor. The relation of scale between the artwork, always adapted to the size of the building, and the visitors permits them to enter a state of reverie.
Yuya Suzuki (JP) mainly uses drawing and video to make works that establish a space in which the viewer and the world around them are in dialogue.
