"Look at the neo-Nazis, who are obsessed with other races and cultures. You are not so obsessed if there is(n't) an attraction where you are trying to suppress the most. Race and sex are intertwined. I think racism is a form of sexuality. It is all about a sexual jealousy and a sexual threat."

Bjarne Melgaard

‘Biography’ presents a wide selection of works from Elmgreen & Dragset’s complex universe, including sculpture, performance and interactive installations. Works from the late 1990s onwards will be shown together with recent projects, and all together they will create a unique insight into the artists’ oeuvre. Elmgreen & Dragset consider an exhibition to be a work of art in itself, with all its narrative, choreographic and social possibilities and ‘Biography’ will examine the very conditions of exhibiting.

I remember sitting in an airport waiting lounge in Barbados a few years back, when a clever young editor made a comment that has always stayed with me. It was that namely, magazine people really make magazines for other magazine people and instead of aspiring to be "stars", or simply "rich", now everyday people in our culture aspires to be media themselves.

Current Viewing: Tatiana Trouvé, The Longest Echo — L’Écho le plus long : musée d'art moderne et contemporain : MAMCO (Geneva)

Les temps sont doubles. Le présent est double, il a même deux faces qui coexistent simultanément, suggère Tatiana Trouvé .Les temps sont doubles. Le présent est double, il a même deux faces qui coexistent simultanément, suggère Tatiana Trouvé .

On pourra insister, avec I Tempi doppi, sur un nouage récurrent dans les œuvres de Tatiana Trouvé. Dans les relations d’un énoncé (I Tempi doppi) et d’une forme (une ampoule électrique allumée, reliée par un fil conducteur à une autre, éteinte), se libèrent les conditions d’une expérience esthétique selon une double portée, où une proposition matérielle vaut à la fois en tant qu’idée et en tant qu’image. Dans l’intervalle ouvert par ces écarts, se libère un espace pour la pensée à travers un phénomène d’écho, au sein duquel la réflexion d’une idée s’effectue sur un obstacle qui la répercute. Pris dans ce dispositif poétique, il revient au spectateur de faire résonner le sens.
