apollonia venue, Strasbourg
Think of an exhibition in a limited and condensed time, as something that takes place during one single evening filled with unrolling interventions.Think of an exhibition as an event where nothing is set in stone, where anything might happen and where the artists are the activators of their own work. All of which demands the audience extra attention at all times.
Four young artists try to engage a reflection around the principle of activation, whether it is of a memory, a place, a people, a culture… The mediums they use span from painting to sculpture, from video installation to performance, working together around the concept of the gesture of activation, questioning the state of inflexibility.
To activate in the sense of pointing out something, preventing it from falling into oblivion. To activate as a response to the concealment, to the neglect, whether it came from the society or was time’s doing.
In any case, the presented works are about signifying a presence, getting back into shape or giving visibility and making the audience a witness of these actions.
