The exhibition examines the essence of art from the vantage point of the paraphrase: it is not that crisp and well-pressed object to be found on department-store racks; rather, like the pair of pants from Barthes’ example, that clump of fabric on the floor, negligently dropped there when the boy stepped out of them,
careless, lazy, indifferent. “The essence of an object has some relation with its destruction: not necessarily what remains after it has been used up, but what is thrown away as being of no use”.
We have for you the site of a former Hindu ashram, clumps of the sacred and the asperity of walls.
Frank Jimin Hopp, Soji Shimizu, Max Richter, Moritz Haase, Joy Adegoke, Jack Holden, Pawel Jankiewicz and
Michael Hazell will show you their fatigue amoureuse.
