Performance by Benjamin Valenza De l’autre jaillit le chant / Songs & poems for the others
« Cette performance fait appel à plusieurs individus, tous transportent.
Les bâtiments, croisent dans l’Entre-deux;
Ils se déplacent, se cherchent.
Plusieurs, ces transporteurs performant; à l’appel fait aux individus, écoutent.
L’arsenal, s’extrait du topos.
S’échangent une forme contre un poème. »
Benjamin Valenza, September 2011

Sentimental Abstractions & selected editions

Here is an opportunity to make some well-aimed choices from the editions of the Centre d’édition contemporaine.
A few other works, closely related, will join this selection of editions and will complete this first circle by a personal and sentimental vision of abstraction: a rather referenced, narrative, nostalgic, atmospheric one.
These reminiscences of abstraction – more anchored in figure and narration than in the myth of autonomy, more romantic than geometric, more ironic than cynical, more emotional than critical – come after the “Great Era” of minimalism, of purism, of the neutrality of grids and monochromes. Rather, they take part in a movement of reiteration and in the search towards some faraway knowledge.
Mental associations, quotations, unconscious images, writings, collage, gaps, mixes, theatricality, signs, abstracted from reality before integrating it again bit by bit by coiling into the heart of a landscape, of a rock, a piece of lace, a water drop, a memory, a drawing completed each day, photographs taken during film projections, in the heart of a shooting of a sculpture by Serra…
This « step aside » is illustrated by an aesthetic which finds its source in photography, in the black-and-white, the 1920ies – 1930ies, Moholy-Nagy, Patzsch, Rodtchenko, Schlemmer, but also Abbott and the Bechers, and a particular interest in recording techniques. Photography, film and collage can as much offer an addition to art as negate it, erase it. The objectivation of recording reminds us of Carl Andre’s maxim: « A thing is a hole in a thing which is not », borrowed by Robert Smithson as a title for an article written in 1968 (Article in Robert Smithson: The Collected Writings, ed. Jack Flam, University of California Press, 1996). Gerard Byrne also used it, though slightly altered, for the title of his 2010 film, « A thing is a hole in a thing it is not ».
This intention and this personal and sentimental abstraction will build up at the Cneai de Paris throughout editions by Gerard Byrne, Benjamin Valenza and Susanne M. Winterling, books by Philippe Decrauzat and by Jakob Kolding, as well as some new guests: Raphaël Julliard, Fabian Marti and Adrien Missika.
