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.

Vis-à-vis 3 SONNET(S) & OTHER SONNET

April 12, 2013

Christophe Daviet-Thery would be delighted to welcome you to the upcoming exhibition at the gallery on 12th April -22th  May, 2013.

Opening show 12th April at 6pm-9pm

Vis-à-vis 3 SONNET (S) & OTHER SONNET

Ulises Carrion SONNET (S) 1972

Michalis Pichler OTHER SONNET (S) 2009-(ongoing)

This vis-à-vis would be the occasion to bring face the artist’s publication “SONNET(S)” by Ulises Carrion, 1072 and “OTHER SONNET” by Michalis Pichler, here in particular “THIRTYSIX LITHOGRAPHED SONNETS”,2009.

In 1972, Ulises Carrion produced his first artist’s book “SONNET (S)” which consists of a 44 variations of a sonnet by Dante Gabriel Rosetti titled ” Hearts Compass”. Using the langage like a material, Carrion writes Rossetti’s poem over and over again on a typewritter, in slighthly different versions.

Michalis Pichler, a Berlin-based experimental writter, artist and publisher, in a similar approach, created 44 new variations produced and published a book titled “SOME MORE SONNET(S)” – and on the last page of this book announced a multitude of OTHER SONNET’S), mostly imaginary. In an ongoing process, Pichler produced some of them, like “THIRTYSIX LITHOGRAPHED SONNET(S)” which the title give the form in an interaction between what we are reading and what we are seeing, changing words in a visual way, even “sculptural” like a materialization of the language”.
