A duo show
Show from Jan 27th to March 10th, 2018
We are pleased to present the exhibitions by Mac Adams and Elina Brotherus.
Mac Adams, Empty Spaces and Parallel Lives
“I was fascinated by the way clues in a crime worked visually in space. The objects themselves offer only circumstantial evidence at the best; it is the relationship between these objects, that void that is highly charged. I began making abstract representations of mysteries that only when a strong light is played on what appear to be disparate objects from a very specific angle is a figurative image created and the image revealed.”
Elina Brotherus, Règle du Jeu
Winner of the carte blanche PMU 2017, Elina Brotherus creates a new project with her friend, the dancer Vera Nevanlinna, “Règle du Jeu”. Borrowed from the event scores of the Fluxus artists, the staging of these little solitary or duo actions explores the place of humankind in the vast and complex universe. Simple gestures are repeated and reframed, and achieve a nearly surreal or illusionary resonance. The images appear to scroll by like a narration that is both playful and serious. The ordinary becomes strange, the familiar turns threatening.
