Communiqué de presse
STRADDLE THE LINE BETWEEN FORM AND FUNCTION
Chevaucher la ligne entre la forme et la fonction, et non plus suivre le
corollaire moderniste selon lequel «la forme suit la fonction». Fruit d’une
idéologie fonctionnaliste, stipulant que la beauté d’un objet fabriqué
provient de son adaptation à sa fonction, cette formule reste envoutée par
l’idée de Beau et prisonnière d’un ravissement orienté pour les choses
«nobles» de ce monde.
Dans cette exposition collective, les artistes troublent la ligne de
démarcation entre la forme et la fonction, opèrent par transformations:
non pas «transfiguration du banal», mais régression à la banalité des objets, à
leur puissance mobilisatrice et instigatrice de mondes. Réduction de l’objet
donc, à ce qu’il est tel qu’il est, jusqu’à ce point le plus bas, où l’on frôle le réel:
cette vie «dégradée» que l’on cherche activement à recouvrir d’un voile de
pudeur. Ici se joue le retour vers une ontologie plate, qui engloberait
indifféremment le sacré et le profane, le réel et le virtuel, le back- et le on stage,
sans hiérarchie ni valeur, mais sans en épuiser pour autant le pouvoir de
fascination.
Investissant les lieux communs de notre vie pratique, à l’image des parkings dont
on minore l’intérêt jusqu’au moment de leur utilisation, les artistes recomposent
notre attachement aux choses dans ce qu’elles ont d’hypermatériel, là «où la
matière est toujours déjà une forme, où la forme est toujours déjà une
information, et où l’“immatériel” apparaît pour ce qu’il est: une fable qui enfume
les esprits» . De cette vie mondaine, quotidienne ou ordinaire, seuls les designers
semblent avoir le souci d’en organiser l’appareillage complexe qui en révèle le
monde. Pourtant c’est bien à partir de cette infrastructure, tant technique
qu’économique, que se développent les formes politiques et juridiques, que se
déploient nos représentations cognitives, que prennent racine nos affects et
notre rapport à soi, aux autres, au monde. Parce que l’appareillage nous traverse,
nous construit, nous met en relation les uns avec les autres, il doit aujourd’hui
pouvoir se vivre sous la forme d’une expérience esthétique, qui en revisite la
portée critique.
Ainsi en va-t-il des bannières en berne réalisées par Loup Sarion.
Porteuses d’une forme de rêve collectif qui les redouble en symbole, elles
affirment le paradoxe d’être à la fois le véhicule d’une morale
consumériste, comme sa bassesse programmée. Chez Irina Lotarevich, les
boites de la marque d’outils DeWALT, remplies d’eau croupissante mélangée
à des cosmétiques ou du bain de bouche LISTERINE, mobilisent la puissance
évocatrice et ornementale des marques placardées sur les murs de nos
villes. Chez Hadrien Gerenton, le mobilier domestique se voit détourné
vers des usages insolites qui en redéfinissent l’usage, la fonction suit
alors la forme
; quand Rachel Koolen investit l’espace de pièces en instance
de résurrection. Pour chacun, il s’agit non plus de travailler contre, et à cause
d’une base matérielle qui régulerait nos comportements, mais avec et grâce à
elle. De ces retournements de regards, les artistes nous présentent la logistique
pure, ce par quoi les choses ne sont jamais que ce que l’on projette sur
elles, en acquérant leur «essence» par l’usage singulier que l’on peut en faire.

STRADDLE THE LINE BETWEEN FORM AND FUNCTION
To straddle the line between form and function, and not to follow the
modernist corollary, which implies that form follows function. As a result of a
functionalist ideology stating that the beauty of a produced object comes from
its ability to adapt to its function, this concept remains enchanted by the notion
of Beauty and imprisoned in rapture for the noble things present in this world.
The artists taking part in this group exhibition blur the boundaries between form
and function, they act with transformations: not as “metamorphosing banality”
but as the objects’ decline to banality, their power to mobilize and generate
worlds. The object is thus reduced to what it is as it is, up to the lowest point
near reality: this damaged life that we want to hide under a veil of decency. Here
the return of a flat ontology is at stake, where sacred and secular, real and
virtual, backstage and onstage would be indifferently embraced without hierarchy
or value, though not exhausting its capacity to fascinate.
By investing common places of our practical lives, such as car parks that we
tend to ignore until we use them, the artists redefine our attachment to material
things in the “hypermateriality” they have, where “matter is always already a
form, where form is always already an information, and where immateriality
appears for what it is: an invention that can trick minds”1. In this high, daily or
ordinary life, only designers seem to care enough to organize their intricate
apparatus, revealing this world. However it is from this both technical and
economical infrastructure that political and legal forms develop, that our
cognitive representations expand, that our affects and inner relationships
take root, our relationships with others, with the world. And because this
apparatus goes through us, builds us, connects us one another, it should be lived
today as an aesthetic experience allowing a new critical range.
So are the half-mast banners created by Loup Sarion. Flourishing a kind of
collective dream which rises them to symbol, the banners represent the
contradiction between being the vector of a consumerist moral and its
programmed baseness. The DeWALT tool cases of Irina Lotarevich, filled with
stagnant water mixed with beauty products or Listerine mouthwash rally the
evocative and ornamental strength of trademarks omnipresent on our city
walls. The house furniture of Hadrien Gérenton is distorted to unusual uses
redefining their purpose: the function then follows the form; while Rachel Koolen
places artworks pending resurrection. For all, this is not about working against
and because of a material basis which would regulate our behaviors, but with it
and thanks to it. The artists present here pure logistics from these diverted
looks, what makes things what we envisage them to be, acquiring their “essence”
by the singular use of what we can make with it.

l'Espace culturel Louis Vuitton (Paris) ainsi qu'au Palais des BeauxArts (Paris) et au Carré Sainte-Anne de Montpellier.
Créer des objets est une façon de générer des nouvelles situations
et des interactions entre les formes et les regardeurs. Selon
Hadrien Gérenton, les objets ont leur existence autonome, leur
propre logique. Il tente d'extraire des éléments du monde existant
pour en façonner un nouveau, totalement virtuel, avec ses propres
codes de représentations.

Rachel, dans son travail modèle les matériaux à la main comme
s'ils étaient une extension de sa pensée -une chaîne de pensées
devient plastique- alors qu'elle se sert des matériaux comme un
moyen de spéculation rétroactive. Lorsque cette ligne
directrice est abandonnée, le travail de sculpture commence à
agir comme un vecteur de signes adultérins. Le processus de
libération
et
la
reconsolidation
finale
des energies
temporairement détériorées se stabilisent dans l'équilibre fragile et
précaire de l'installation.

Lives and works in Paris (FR).
Holding a degree from the Fine Arts School of Beaux-Arts in
Paris (with Claude Cosky and Michel François studios)
Hadrien Gérenton has exhibited in NewGalerie (Paris/New
York), the Yia La Confidentielle (Paris), the Friche belle de Mai
(Marseille), theLouis Vuitton Cultural Space (Paris) the Palais des
Beaux-Arts (Paris) and the Carré Sainte-Anne in Montpellier.
Creating objects is a way to generate new situations and
interactions between their shapes and the viewer. According to
Hadrien Gérenton, objects exist independently, they have their own
logic. He aims to extract elements of the existing world in order to
create a new one, completely virtual, with its own codes of
representations.
> Micah HESSE (born in 1991)
Lives and works in New York (USA).
Micah has a degree from the Cooper Union for the Advancement
of Art and Science, New York. He has recently taken part in a
group show «Telepathy or Esperanto?», at the Contemporary art
center FUTURA in Prague (April 2-May 10, 2015).
His videos, with not aesthetical sophistication bear a poetic yet
critical dimension on our world.
> Rachel KOOLEN (born in 1979)
Lives in Enschede (NL), works in Enschede (NL) and Brussels (BE).
She received her M.A. Fine Art at Piet Zwart Institute in 2011 and
was from 2007 to 2009 a fellow researcher at the Jan van Eyck
Academie,
Maastricht.
Her
recent
exhibitions
include
«Monumentalism», Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2010), «Magic
Trade Love Objects», Art Fair Geneva (2012) and «The Long
Leash», by The Ister, Brussels (2013). Solo show:
«Swallow A Bird» at Johan Berggren Gallery, Malmö (SE) in 2014.
Rachel in her work moulds materials at hand as if they were an
extension of her thinking -a chain of thought becomes plasticwhile she serves the material as a means for retroactive
speculation. When through this bond predominant direction is
abandoned the sculptural work begins to act like a carrier of
adulterous signs. The process of release and finally rebinding of
deteriorated energies temporarily stabilises in the fragile and easily
agitated equilibrium of an installation.
> Irina LOTAREVICH (née en 1991)

Diplômée d’un BFA du Hunter College, NY en 2013. Elle a tout
récemment participé à deux expositions collectives «Telepathy or
Esperanto?», au Centre d’art contemporain FUTURA à Prague (2
avril-10 mai 2015) et "Seed and Grave", à New York.
Ses détournements de valises ou mallettes, objets readymade transformés, questionnent autant l’objet, ses possibles
contenus, que son devenir sculpture.
> Julien MEERT (né en 1983)
Vit et travaille à Bruxelles (BE)
Diplômé de l'Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles en
2003, et d'un master de l'ENSAV-La Cambre, Bruxelles en 2009.
Régulièrement exposé à Bruxelles et plus largement en
Belgique, Julien Meert participe ici, pour la première fois à une
exposition de groupe en France, et vient de réaliser une première
exposition personnelle chez Balice Hertling à New York.
Ses portraits semblent figés dans un état de suspension. Dans un
premier temps, ils peuvent paraître intimidants par la fixité de leurs
regards, puis comme par effet de miroir, nous refléter une palette
d’émotions communes.
> Loup SARION (né en 1987)
Vit et travaille à Paris (FR).
Diplômé de l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Paris (ateliers Claude
Closky et Michel François), il a également étudié à la Cooper
Union School of Art à New York (avec Walid Raad, Yto Barrada
et Dennis Adams). Il a récemment exposé chez JeanRoch Dard
à Bruxelles, ExoExo à Paris, Demon’s mouth à Oslo, Yia Art Fair à
Paris, Dumbo Arts Center à Brooklyn, Espace culturel Louis
Vuitton à Paris.
Son approche, empruntant sa méthode à celle du chercheur, se
fait sans autorité ni simplification. Elle inclue et assume la
mécompréhension du réel, mais tente malgré tout d’y échapper,
d’y adhérer ou tout simplement d’en produire des images et
espaces à explorer. Son travail se définit par ce désir inexplicable
de générer des formes face à l’ennui, au laisser-aller, à la boucle
du quotidien, au réel inadapté, à la condensation qui se dépose
sur le visible.

part in two group shows entitled «Telepathy or Esperanto?», at the
Contemporary art center FUTURA in Prague (April 2-May 10, 2015)
and "Seed and Grave" in New York.
Irina’s briefcases or carry cases distorsions, transformed readymade objects, are questioning the object, its possible contents as
well as its future as a sculpture.
> Julien MEERT (born in 1983)
Lives and works in Brussels (BE)
Holds a diploma from the Royal Academy of Beaux-Arts in Brussels
(2003) and a Master degree from ENSAV-La Cambre, Brussels
(2009).
Regularly shown in Brussels and widely in Belgium, Julien Meert
takes part here, for the first time in France to a group show, and
has recently had a first solo show at Balice Hertling in New
York.
His portraits seem fixed in a suspension state. At first sight,
their glance may be intimidating, then as a mirror effect, they
unveil a wide and common range of emotions.
> Loup SARION (born in 1987)
Lives and works in Paris (FR).
Loup Sarion holds a BFA from École des Beaux-arts of Paris
(Classes of Claude Closky and Michel François), and studied at the
Cooper Union School of Art, New York (Classes of Walid Raad, Yto
Barrada and Dennis Adams). He has exhibited at JeanRoch Dard,
Brussels, Exoexo, Paris, Demon’s mouth, Oslo, Yia Art Fair, Paris,
Dumbo Arts Center, Brooklyn, Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton, Paris.
His approach, while in the posture of a researcher, is done without
authority neither simplification. It includes and assumes the
misunderstanding of the real. Through the temptation to escape, or
to join, or just to produce images and spaces to explore the results.
His work is defined by this inexplicable desire to generate forms
that investigate boredom, carelessness, the everyday loop, the
inadequacy of the real, the condensation accumulating on the
visible.
