Abstract (English)

''Work, management, economics, politics, control systems, state-of-the-art technologies, and the culture industry are the many “worlds” that Prix Marcel Duchamp winning artist Julien Prévieux’s activities interrogate. The methods of recording movement and gesture developed over the last century and a half led to aesthetic results that recall the formal explorations of modernist art. Playing on this resemblance, Julien Prévieux transforms these records—originally produced for the sake of productivity, profit or surveillance—into pure form. Using map-making, dance, theatre, sculpture, video, and drawing, his work appropriates the vocabulary, mechanisms, and modus operandi of the sectors by which it is informed to highlight their dogmas and excesses. In this solo exhibition presented across both galleries, Prévieux highlights each mechanism’s potential for play, creativity, productivity, and counter-productivity.'' -- Publisher's website
