Je déballe ma bibliothèque # 2
 
De la collection.
 une proposition d’Anne Laure Chamboisier et Christophe Daviet-Thery
 du 27 au 30 mars 2014 de 11h à 18h –  Etude Cornette de St Cyr, chaussée de Charleroi 89 -1060 Bruxelles
Je déballe ma bibliothèque, en écho à l’ouvrage de Walter Benjamin, est une proposition autour de la bibliothèque comme lieu de rencontre, de dialogue et de confrontation
de tous les savoirs, laquelle faisait dire à Jorge Luis Borges ” J’ai toujours imaginé que le paradis serait une sorte de bibliothèque”. À bien des  égards, ce projet, articulé autour de la bibliothèque, est d’ailleurs littéraire. Par son titre, emprunté à Walter Benjamin, mais aussi, sa mobilité qui fait penser au professeur Peter Kien d’Elias Canetti dans Auto-da-fé qui emportait toujours sur lui une parcelle de sa bibliothèque. Et enfin, par sa nature, la bibliothèque, qui évoque inévitablement Jorge Luis Borges.
 
Appelé à se déplacer et ainsi à être réactivé, le contenu de cette bibliothèque varie, s’enrichit au gré de ses déambulations et du contexte; en l’occurence un hôtel de ventes, lieu de présentation et de dispersion d’objets d’art. Ainsi déballée, cette deuxième bibliothèque s’articule autour du thème de la collection qui devient matière de l’oeuvre comme chez Christian Marclay ou Allen Rusperberger, ou son sujet lorsqu’elle est appréhendée sous l’angle de l’accumulation dans une volonté encyclopédique évoquant les cabinets de curiosités avec Mark Dion ou Battia Sutter.
Si la collection se compose d’objets, elle évoque également les notions de convoitise, de désir, de frustration et de fétichisme, ironiquement pointées par Stefan Brüggeman avec sa sentence This Work Is Realized When It Is Bumed qui exhorte le collectionneur à détruire l’oeuvre ou encore Yann Sérandour et son Incomplete Open Cube.

Unpacking My Library # 2
 
De la collection.
  Anne Laure Chamboisier  and Christophe Daviet-Thery
 from  27th to  30th March,  2014 from 11 a.m  to 6p.m –  Etude Cornette de St Cyr, chaussée de Charleroi 89 -1060 Bruxelles

Unpacking my library, echoing Walter Benjamin’s book, is a proposition revolving around the library as a meeting place, a place of dialogue, where all knowledge is compared, which caused Jorge Luis Borges to say: “I’ve always imagined that paradise would be a sort of library”.

In many respects, this project organized around the library is also literary. Through its title borrowed from Walter Benjamin.

Through its mobility which calls to mind Elias Canetti’s professor Peter Kien in Auto-da-fé, who always carried on him a piece of his library. And  lastly, through its nature, the library which inevitably conjures up Jorge  Luis Borges.

Required to move and therefore to be reactivated, the content of this library varies, is enriched depending on its wanderings and of the context in which it appears, in this case an auction house, a space where art works are exhibited and scattered.

Presented in this manner, this second library is structured around the theme of collection which becomes the substance of the piece as seen with Christian Marclay or Allen Ruppersberg…  or its subject when it is perceived as accumulation with an encyclopedic intent, reminding one of Mark  Dion or Battia Sutter’s curiosity cabinets.If the collection is composed of objects, it is also evocative of notions such as envy, desire, frustration and fetichism, which are ironically pointed out by Stefan Brüggeman in his sentence This work is realised when it is burned  exhorting the collector to destroy the work, or Yann Sérandour and his Incomplete Open Cube .

Matthew Brannon

March 21, 2014

Hors d’oeuvres, 2014 

Scrennprints by Sarah Shebaro, Brooklyn Binding by Clara Gevaert, Brussels.

55,9 x 50,9 cm – 8 pages.

Edition of 25 copies numbered and signed by the artist + 7 A.P + 4 H.C

Published by christophe daviet-thery, Paris.

Price upon request.

Matthew Brannon’s images are purposefully seductive and immediately identifiable to the point of assimilating themselves to archetypes.
Indeed, what better way to represent a platter of crayfish, an ice-bowl or an Oscar ? Matthew Brannon ‘s aesthetic is influenced by the graphic
arts, the advertising world; an aesthetic infused by the outdated elegance of the 1950′s. His images work like ” visual signs” that condition our very reading of them.
Yet, beyond these surface images a darker world is hidden away, revealed here by a letter from a producer to an author, creating a tension between what is to
be seenand what is to be read.
I there a better parable of our contemporary society than Hollywood, which Matthew Brannon invites us to observe through a keyhole ?

Les images de Matthew Brannon sont volontairement séduisantes et immédiatement identifiables jusqu’à  s’assimiler à des archétypes. En effet, quelle autre représentation d’un plat de langoustes, d’une coupe à glace ou encore d’un Oscar pourrait-on avoir ?
Matthew Brannon emprunte son esthétique aux arts graphiques, à l’univers publicitaire; esthétique teintée de lélégance surannée des années 50.
Et pourtant derrière ces images de surface, se cache un univers plus obscur, ici dévoilé sous la forme d’une lettre d’un producteur à un auteur, créant une tension entre ce qui est donné à voir et ce qui est à lire.
Quelle meilleure parabole de la société contemporaine qu’Hollywood que Matthew Brannon nous invite ici à observer à travers un trou de serrure ?

__________________________________________________
En 1974, Georges Pérec, tente pendant trois jours d’affilée et à différents moments de la journée de saisir tout ce qu’il voit place Saint-Sulpice où il s’est installé. Cette «Tentative d’épuisement d’un lieu parisien’ qui sera publiée en 1975 sert de point de départ à cette proposition qui s’articule autour de la notion d’enregistrement et de représentation de l’espace urbain.

 Alors que l’étymologie du mot représentation désigne “l’action de replacer devant les yeux de quelqu’un”, ce qui tend à donner à la représentation une définition restrictive, cette proposition s’attache au contraire à en confronter les différentes formes que cela soit par l’image, le mot ou encore le son.

Ce projet multi facette s’inscrit dans l’espace même de la ville autour d’un point fixe, un lieu d’art contemporain Cruce dans la rue Docteur Fourquet. Cette exposition s’articule autour des travaux photographique de Benoît Fougeirol, Nicolas Aiello, des livres de stanley brown, On kawara, Daniel Buren, d’un film de David Lamelas et d’un environnement sonore de Gauthier Keyaerts à partir de différentes sources : Scanner, Edgar Varese, Bill Fontana, Steve Roden, Rainier Lericolais…

Deux projets ont été commandés à Matt Mulican et Steve Roden, lesquels se glissent dans les interstices de la ville par une dissémination d’affiches, réalisées par eux même, ici et là. Une manière de poser ainsi la question de la place de l’art au sein de l’espace public et des formes qu’il doit prendre.

En écho, Tentative(s) d’Epuisement se développe au sein de l’ARCO en prenant part à la section As tables are shelves afin d’étendre l’espace urbain dans un contexte artistique sous forme d’une librairie avec des projets de livres de Yona Friedman, Jorge Macchi, Ingo Giezendanner, Gabriel Basilico , Toine Horvers, Christian Marclay, Matt Mulican, Francis Alys, Beat Streuli, Andrea Branzi, and Archigram.

—————————————————————————————————————–

In 1974, for three days running and at different moments of the day, Georges Perec tried to record everything he could see in Place Saint-Sulpice, where he had set up home. This Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Paris, which would be published in 1975, acts as a point of departure for this proposition, organized around the notion of recording and representing the urban space. While the etymology of the word representation gives “the act of replacing (something) before someone’s eyes”, which tends to give representation a restrictive definition, this proposition strives, on the contrary, to tackle its different forms, be it through image, word or sound.

This polymorphous project is incorporated in the actual space of the city around a fixed point, a place of contemporary art, Cruce, in Rue Docteur Fourquet, and is organized around a piece by Claire Morel and two in situ works by Benoît Fougeirol and Nicolas Aiello, which are echoed  by books by stanley brouwn, Daniel Buren, Peter Downsbrough, and On Kawara, a film by David Lamelas, and an acoustic environment by Gauthier Keyaerts based on different sources: Scanner, Bill Fontana, Steve Roden, and Rainier Lericolais…

Like an extension in the city’s actual space, and slipping into the city’s interstices, a poster commission was organized with Steve Roden. A way of thus raising the issue of art within the public place and the forms it should take.

Like an echo, Attempt(s) at Exhausting  is being developed actually within the ARCO, as part of the section As Tables are Shelves, in order to bring the urban space into an artistic context in the form of a bookshop with titles by Francis Alys, Andrea Branzi, Peter Downsbrough, Yona Friedman, Ingo Giezendanner, Toine Horvers, Jorge Macchi, Matt Mulican,, Beat Streuli …

Daniel Gustav Cramer

November 14, 2013

Christophe Daviet-Thery would be delighted to welcome you to the next exhibition

Seven Works by Daniel Gustav Cramer at the gallery on November 15th – December 21th, 2013.

Opening show November 15th, 2013 at 6.oo – 9.00 pm.

Seven works for seven works or groups of works positioned in space.

Photographs, sculptures and text works appear as fragments of a composition of the exhibition’s narrative form, creating a space/time-frame pending between fixedness and fluidity.

The obvious beauty of the images and their poetic dimension, like that of the texts, is evident but we should not reduce Daniel Gustav Cramer ‘s work just to this poetic dimension; we must reinstate its conceptual dimension,accentuated by the use of primary forms and almost abstract imagery.

Over and above what there is to see and read, is an issue of representation and its diversity being raised here, like an experience in looking and perceiving.

If the etymology of the word “representation” describes “the action of re-placing before someone’s eyes”, which tends to give representation a restrictive definition, Daniel Gustav Cramer’s work strives, on the contrary, to confront and question its different forms.

  Reading Dance

- A proposal by Christophe Daviet-Thery

Leonor Antunes, Remy Charlip, Daniel Jacoby, Bruno Munari, Yann Sérandour, Erwin Wurm

11 July – 10 August 2013

Opening Thursday 11 July 2013, 18h00

In the 202 October 1944 issue of the magazine DOMUS, italian designer Bruno Munari was introdcting Ricerca della comodità su una poltrona scomoda (Seeking comfort in an uncomfortable armchair), a consideration around the exponential increase of armchairs’ typologies against their proportional lacking of practicality. The short writing was illustrated with a series of photographs in which Munari himself is immortalized just as finding a comfortable position so to read on an extensed seat armchair.

Precisely refering to this series of images, Remy Charlip (1929-2012)- artist, choreographer and illustrator for children books- realize one his Air Mail Dances (choreographical partitions sent on postcards), entitled Dancein a wing chair/Danse dans un fauteuil (Reading Dance), depicting a character caught up with the search for an ideal reading position, as a dancer following a choreography.

With the same attitude that has been bringing Remy Charlip to reply to Bruno Munari, Christophe Daviet-Thery, bookseller and publisher, has been inviting Leonor Antunes, Pablo Bronstein, Koenraad Dedobbeleer, Yann Sérandour, Erwin Wurm(co-published with the Cneai) in turn to create a second-reading from Munari’s reflection.

Reading Dance – A proposal by Christophe Daviet-Thery is the story of those interpretive dialogues, to which Daniel Jacoby has been joingning: upon a choreography for images executed by a dancer around a motorcycle seat, Jaconby has extracted then reproduced two images on a two-sided poster. The dancer adapts her body to the anatomy of the object that, isolated from its original context, becomes a design item and a spatial benchmark at the same time.

On the occasion of the exhibition, two other pictures have been printed and posted in large scale format as billboards on the gallery’s walls.

Bye Bye Ducks and Drakes ! (Ricochets) at Villa du Parc Annemasse

July 6, 2013

Bye Bye Ducks and Drakes ! (Ricochets)- Curator Garance Chabert

A proposed publication by Christophe Daviet-Thery focus on Bruno Munari with Leonor Antunes, Koenraad Dedobbeleer, Yann Sérandour, Johannes Wohnseifer, Erwin Wurm  ( co-edition with the Cneai)et Matteo Terzaghi and Marco Zürcher.(co-edition with La Villa du Parc)

The “Two for Tea” season devoted to various forms of artistic collaboration will close with a summer show that extends and enrichies the experiments that were at work in the earlier shows of the series.

Indeed, a good many ricochets are to be expected. Echoes between works, references harking back to subjectively chosen historical sources, reminiscences of past displays – such elements form independent presentations at the Villa.

And since the run of the earlier show wasn’t enough to transform them, the spring landscape of Thu Van Tran will continue to fade away on the veranda throughout the summer. Their alomost imperceptible diminshing is microred by a video piece by Estefania Penafiel Loaiza in which a mysterious gesture of erasure brings with it a new apparition.

Because certain friendships and complicities sometimes spark that desire to do art together, a work from the collection of MAMCO jointly created by Philippe Decrauzat and Stéphane Dafflon will also be on display, continuing the dialog between two artists that was first undertaken last winter by Aurélien Mole and Julien Tiberi. Moreover, to reshuffle the cards in terms of how the art is displayed, and following on the heels of the many joint works inspired by the “Sir Thomas Trope” show, the Villa is pleased to present a project that Christophe Daviet-Thery has developped around the publication in poster form of an article by Bruno Munari “Seeking Comfort in an Uncomfortable Chair” which was first published in Domus in 1944. Pther artists have leapt to the occasion with their reactions and original pieces. The latest effort to date is three silkscreens by a pair of Swiss artists, the duo Matteo Terzaghi and Marco Zürcher, in a joint production with the Villa done especially for this show.

Opening show  20th July at 5pm to 28th September 2013.
