Manège² @ Ppromotion + Data Rhei, Dec 1 – 4

30 November 2016

The Manège² group exhibition is on at Paris’ Ppromotion and Data Rhei on December 1.

The ‘installation-situation’ and edition is conceived as and shared between two ‘domestic spaces’ which are transformed into art run ones at night, at both ends of Rue de la Roquette, 75011. It stems from a statement in the next related publication, Un-Resicencies, where it calls the home a place of ‘asylum’ or ‘shelter’ from the hostilities of a new state where socioeconomic conditions have led to a deterioration of the notion of ‘authenticity’: 

“The intensification of the neoliberal phenomenon of acceleration seems each day to make our perception of the world look a little more like the Uncanny.”   

The two shows will present a selection of motifs and recurrences that occupy a conceptual or physical place and feature other French and international art spaces and collectives, including Deborah Bowmann, Diesel Project Space, Rinomina, DOC, Kunsthalle Tropical, and Ultrastudio among others. The focus is on the modalities of claiming artistic territory, where lease agreements, conditions of use, logos and texts act as a corpus of signs of being and inhabiting.

Les Fausses dents du prince @ Deborah Bowmann, May 25 – Jul 9

24 May 2016

The Les Fausses Dents du Prince group show is on at Deborah Bowmann, opening May 25 and running July 9.

The project space, which is just outside of Brussels, will host artists also mostly based in the Belgian city: After HowlStéphane Barbier-Bouvet, Martin Belou, French duo, Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel —who make large figurative and sculptural scenes like two large hippos made from sand and part disintegrated —Cyril Debon, Romain Juan, Hector Latrille and Margaux Schwarz.

The show, whose title translates to The False Toothed Prince seems to be a collection of artists that spin delicate craft with histories of architecture and sculpture.

See the Deborah Bowmann exhibition page for (limited) details.**
