Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear #1

Galerie Frédéric Giroux, Paris
15 mars – 5 avril 2008

The front window of the Frédéric Giroux gallery is startlingly reminiscent of features of Decaux’s urban poster displays (shallow in depth, vertical format, imposing presence in the public space, etc). Having been invited to devise a project for this venue, we plan to develop a group show on a poster medium of the standard dimensions of an urban ad display in portrait format (120 x 180 cm) by enlisting the services of a graphic artist, currently working as a scenographer.
The initial constraint imposed upon us requires a multi-pronged approach. Firstly, designing an exhibition on a flat surface involves not the presentation, but the representation of a series of works, the exhibition thus constituting both a visual statement articulated by the works and by their documentation. This aspect challenges the validity of the physical presence of a piece and the value of its documentary reproduction. For example, can a sculpture rely on its image alone, as did performance in the 60’s? Might not this mode also constitute a new hypothesis about the presentation of a ‘site-specific’ work?
The poster as a communications means is, by its very essence, a reproducible object. The use thereof for the purposes of display veers from the classic conception of the exhibition as an event inscribed in a defined temporality towards that of the potentially archivable and diffusable object. This latter, in fact, would fulfil at once the functions of presentation, self-publicity and publication (a documentary tool and a memory of the exhibition). Moreover, it is with this in mind that we plan to carry the notion of diffusion further. Objects in the Mirror are closer than they appear sets out to be a simple nomadic device (something that can be moved around and displayed) that could start off at the Frédéric Giroux gallery, yet be entirely free to move on and exist elsewhere, in various art venues, in the street (Chaumont International Poster and Graphic Design Festival), in an office, in the home of someone we’ve just met and so on and so forth to the point where we lose total or partial control.

La vitrine de la galerie Frédéric Giroux rappelle étonnement les caractéristiques du support d’affichage urbain Decaux. Invités à concevoir un projet dans ce lieu, nous avons envisagé un group show sur le médium affiche aux dimensions standard du placard urbain à la française (120 x 180 cm).
Cette contrainte de départ imposée initie une réflexion à plusieurs entrées. Premièrement, concevoir une exposition sur un support plan implique la présentation non pas d’œuvres mais bien de leur représentation, l’exposition constituant autant un argumentaire visuel articulé par les œuvres que leur documentation. Cette dimension questionne la validité de la présence physique d’une pièce et la valeur de sa reproduction documentaire. Ce mode autorise-t-il la confrontation directe de travaux mobilisant des médiums aussi différents que l’imprimé et la « site-specificity » ? Permet-il de révéler le potentiel de communication de ces œuvres réunies sur une feuille de papier ? Consent-il leur appréhension avant tout comme des potentialités conceptuelles à mettre en perspective au-delà des contingences techniques ?
L’affiche comme support de communication est par essence un objet reproductible. Son utilisation à des fins de monstration opère un glissement de la conception classique de l’exposition comme événement inscrit dans une temporalité définie vers celle de l’objet potentiellement archivable et diffusable. Celui-ci cumule de fait les fonctions de présentation, de communication sur lui-même ou de publication (outil documentaire et de mémoire de l’exposition) et même de diffusion. Objects in the Mirror are closer than they appear # 1 devient un dispositif nomade simple (à véhiculer et à accrocher) qui au départ de la galerie Frédéric Giroux pourra se propager et exister ailleurs à loisir, dans différents lieux d’art, dans la rue, dans un bureau, chez quelqu’un, au fil de rencontres et d’opportunités, jusqu’à ce que nous en perdions partiellement ou complètement le contrôle.
