Vernissage: Saturday May 16, 2015, 4 – 6 pm
For the exhibition Architecture Parallax : Optical Lapse Apparatus, Alexander Pilis presents an installation composed of four cameras situated in the four corners of the exhibition room, emitting in real time the space as well as the visitors onto a glass construction thus virtually recreating the exhibition space with the participating public.
In dialogue with the installation, the artist presents the series Blind Slippage, six humoristic prints displaying storyboards, which reflect the artist’s investigation linking language with image.
“Laurent Mulot offers us a work that was unseen before taking the form of a long term experience called “Middle of Nowhere”. “Middle of Nowhere”, a work encompassing the artist’s whole production, is a tale opening with the Ghost Contemporary Art Centers that the artist created all over the world, on each continent: Australia, China, France, Brazil, Morocco, Antarctica and soon enough in ISS (International Space Station).» (Abdelkader Damani)
For this exhibition, Laurent Mulot presents a series of photographs of the ghost contemporary art centers as well as a sculpture entitled Now Melting Here. The work Now Melting Here was created following the last installation of the 6th art center, located in Antarctica. In parallel with the development of the project – six centers on six continents – the letters ANTGCAC (Antarctic Ghost Contemporary Art Center), cast in ice and placed above an oval mirror, melt at a rate depending on the climate of the surrounding environment – thus referring to issues of global climate change.
