À la Petite Ceinture
23 octobre - 20 novembre 2010


For this exhibition, the artists present five works organized around the principle of physical and temporal displacement. Gathering material elements from different social, geographical, and cultural systems into the field of a single image/form, the works presented here use metaphor as a structuring and distributional force to expand the frame through which normal circuits of meaning are determined. The artists likewise privilege the aberrant, excessive, and disruptive workings of metaphors and other tropes to destabilize the functional stability of these ordering structures.
