________ POLDER III
With Aapo Nikkanen, Celeste Richard Zimmermann, Delphine Renault, Ellande Jaureguiberry, Marc Buchy
By presenting works that refer to functional and no longer only aesthetic objects, this format plays on the relationship between artistic value and use value.
The “exhibition” consists in two different temporalities. The first mode is a discreet insertion in previous exhibitions and in the gallery space.
For each exhibition, a piece produced for the future Polder is already present but in an indistinguishable way because it is linked to its use value.
At first, the object has an ambiguous role because it has a function other than that of a work of art: whether it is an office or a library, a coffee machine or a display, it clandestinely infiltrates another programming.
In a second time, the production of these objects is made public on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition which, by disconnecting them from their function, will bring those objects into the art-fields.
