Robert Breer, Order From Chaos That Includes Chaos

Exposition personnelle
Robert Breer
gb agency
9 Mars - 4 Mai 2019


gb agency est heureuse de présenter Order From Chaos That Includes Chaos, 6ème exposition de Robert Breer à la galerie consacrée à une proposition implicite de l’artiste à imaginer une société harmonieuse, faite d’individus libres et contradictoires.
Le titre de l’exposition provient d’un texte intitulé “Alphabeta”, dans lequel Robert Breer (1926-2011) raconte son rapport au monde, sa vision discontinue de la réalité et sa relation à autrui. Pour Robert Breer, “la vie avance, mais de travers, pas obligatoirement tout droit […]. C’est une illusion de croire que l’on va quelque part”. Son œuvre tout entière inclut l’autre, sollicite chaque degré de notre conscience et de notre inconscience, éprouve nos seuils de perception. Order From Chaos That Includes Chaos met en lumière cette dimension sociale du travail de l’artiste aussi bien dans une approche individuelle que dans sa projection collective à l’intérieur de la société.

The title of the exhibition is from the text Alphabeta in which Breer (1926-2011) examines his place in the world, his fragmentary sense of reality, and his relationships to others. For Breer, “Life keeps going but sideways, not necessarily ahead… It’s a disillusion to think you are getting anywhere.”

Breer’s entire oeuvre takes others into account, calls on every element of our conscious and unconscious, and tests the limits of our perception. Order From Chaos That Includes Chaos underscores this social aspect of the work, as much when it focuses on the individual and the personal as when it is projected onto the broader society.

An artist of movement, disruption, and noncompliance, Robert Breer still endures today. A humanist, Breer believed that if we acknowledge the other, we can maintain harmony. His gaze, at times vigilant, malicious and kind, continues to be with us in an era when fear of the other is inflamed.
