Annie Abrahams

6×6/36

For this first opus of the Whish You Were Here! Serie, focusing on the theme  of Mobility, the two curators, Cyril Thomas  and Jean-Luc Soret, have selected works  by artists with very different aesthetic  approaches: Annie Abrahams, Beatriz da  Costa, Nicolas Frespech, Antti Laitinen,  Albertine Meunier and Servovalve  (Gregory Pignot and Alia Daval).

6×6/36 belongs to the series Wish You Were Here! a series of thematic projects proposed by the Collectif NUNC, at the crossroad of printed and electronic publishing and new ways of exhibiting art. Three questions are at the basis of the project Wish You Were Here!: What is the role of exhibition catalogue for contemporary art? What is the relation between printed and electronic publication for exhibitions? How can artworks that are no longer « objects » be exhibited? In short, how to redesign and rethink exhibition and curation today?

Huis Clos/ No Exit – On Translation – documentation

… It felt like touching upon and establishing an early grammar of this new – our  – language… and improvising on it…” Ursula Endlicher.

…I am excluded from future conversations with the others by my own mono-cultural being and perspective. It is not the same as being deaf though, more like aphasia. The fact that I don’t understand the others’ words sensitises me to the tone and timbre of their voices- taps into a more emotional part of me. I feel like a teenager…” Ruth Catlow.

…We reveal … what I call a connected world finally disconnected!” Nicolas Frespech.

…Where narcissicism becomes kaleidoscopic….” Martine Neddam.

…In a way I found this performance very political: it showed us all the tensions of being both unique and multiple, the difficulties both technical and relational that entails having to invent a common ground that does not erase any particularities...” Bérénice Belpaire.
