FOCUS VISUAL ARTS
Les Ateliers de Rennes / FIAC - International Contemporary Art Fair
17 - 21 october 2016
Establishing links between the foreign professionals and creative talents living in France, identifying new opportunities for the development of their careers, targeting influencer networks: these remains the key missions of the Institut français. Since 2010, the Focus program –with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Communication and of the French cultural network abroad – has lead to the invitation of over 100 curators, critics, and directors of institutions, of which more than 50 exhibitions in the world were subsequently generated and organized with French artists.
HIGHLIGHTS - AUTUMN EDITION
· The FIAC – International Contemporary Art Fair, that will take place in Paris from 22 to 25 october. This fair welcomes each year more than 150 of the world’s most dynamic and prestigious art galleries. Moreover, thanks to the great quality of the Hors-les-Murs program, the FIAC will invest new sites and institutions such as « Le Jardin des Tuileries » or « La Maison de la Radio », and will bring together a large number of committed partners around events dedicated to the contemporary creation (exhibition, debates, performance cycles ...)
· The 5th Rennes Biennial of Contemporary art will run from september to november 2017. After a successful edition in 2014, which received both public and media acclaim, the biennial Les Ateliers de Rennes prepares its 5th edition for the fall of 2016. François Piron, independent exhibition curator, art critic, and publisher has been invited to lead the artistic project.
What are emotions we are about to have in a future already present? The era of emotions is over. One prefers a mood or mood predictor [...] which in turn become logos for products, which in turn become product-emotions, which in turn become consumers (by-products),” once stated American poet Tan Lin. In other words: What are the consequences of our incorporation into the abstract systems of our economic world?
Incorporated! focuses on the affects provoked by our prolonged submission to the ideologies and the technologies governed by economics. The dissolution of borders between the public and the private, the singular and the common; feelings of helplessness and dispossession: these are all examples of the concerns reflected in the artworks by this cross-generational group of renowned and emerging artists.
Incorporated! aims at reconsidering the emancipatory forces that lie in the negation, the opacity, the resistance exerted by the artworks gathered in the biennale. The exhibition will present numerous new productions and important ensembles specially commissioned for the biennale.

Patrick Bernier and Olive Martin « I belong to the ship »
In the frame of the Satellite programme of le Jeu de Paume - Curator : Heidi Ballet
In their joint practice, Patrick Bernier and Olive Martin explore the porousness of identity within the context of
migration. Their projects take the form of research into multi-layered localities and territorial wastelands where they link the traditional concepts of physical space with laws of an oftentimes temporary nature. These temporary or ephemeral laws are related, on the one hand, to issues of migration and the right to belong, and on the other hand, to the Internet.
The complexity of spatial divisions is immediately evident in projects such as La Nouvelle Kahnawaké, where the artists visit a small village in an Indian reserve that manages an online casino, or in their current project, X et Y c. France where they juxtapose the legal status of an online document versus that of an illegal immigrant.http://maba.fnagp.fr/ hftp://www.jeudepaume.org/index.php?page=article&idArt=2525

· Jean-Luc Verna «Vous n'êtes pas un peu beaucoup maquillé ? - Non.» (Aren't you wearing a bit too much make-up? – No »
Jean-Luc Verna juggles borders among cultures, eras and genres. In his drawings and photography, this provocative artist replicates references, addressing major artistic historical figures as well as those of the contemporary rock scene. Verna uses multiple media, draws and sculpts his own body, putting himself at the forefront in his everyday life as in his works. His drawings, transfers, photocopies are enhanced by make-up and blush, conveying the imagery of queer culture. His works are complex processes of references, picturesque juxtapositions and reinterpretations of major works and scenes of everyday life.
Jean-Luc Verna's career began at the end of the 1980's; he now presents his works in France (Nice, Avignon, Galerie Air de Paris in Paris) and abroad (Mamco - Musée d'art moderne et contemporain in Geneva, Grey Art Gallery in New-York, Rodolphe Janssen Gallery in Brussels). http://www.macval.fr/english/

Le Plateau - Fonds Régional d'Art Contemporain, (Frac)
Mark Geffriaud Deux mille quinze » (Two thousand fifteen)
© Mark Geffriaud
The film installation at the heart of the exhibition conceived by Mark Geffriaud for le plateau explores our relationship to time. The film consists of footage of two different locations, namely, the construction site of the largest telescope in the world in the Atacama Desert, Chile, and the shores of Lake Titicaca, between Peru and Bolivia, where large building stones were abandoned more than a thousand years ago.
From the top of Mount Armazones, where the future telescope will stand, astrophysicists hope to travel back in time and witness the birth of the first galaxies. The piedras cansadas (tired stones), abandoned for unknown reasons during their transport to the city of Tiwanaku, have given rise to much speculation by archaeologists. The various theories on the building for which they were intended rely on the past to construct various projections of a future that will forever remain fictitious.
The work of Mark Geffriaud (born 1977) is based on the production of installations, sculptures and films that focus on the construction of time and memory. Since 2007 his work has been shown in numerous museums and galleries in France (Centre Pompidou, Palais de Tokyo, Musée national du Jeu de Paume, Musée d’art moderne de Paris, etc.) and abroad (Tate Modern, London; De Appel, Amsterdam; National Gallery, Prague; Mamco, Geneva; etc.). His work can also be found in various national collections (Centre Pompidou, Musée d’art moderne de Paris, frac île-de-france). http://www.fraciledefrance.com
Jeu de Paume
Uprisings – Group show
Curator: Georges Didi-Huberman
Uprisings is a trans-disciplinary exhibition on the theme of human gestures that raise up the world or rise up against it: collective or individual gestures, actions or passions, works or thoughts. They are gestures which say no to a state of history that is considered too “heavy” and that therefore needs to be “lifted” or even sent packing. They are also gestures that say yes to something else: to a desired better world, an imagined or adumbrated world, a world that could be inhabited and conceived differently.
These figures of uprising and up-raising will range freely across mediums: paintings, drawings, prints, video installations, photographs, fiction films, documentary images, writers’ manuscripts, tracts, posters, etc., without hierarchies. The exhibition sequence will follow a sensitive, intuitive path along which the gaze can focus on exemplary “cases” treated with a precision that prevents any kind of generalisation. We will be mindful not to conclude, not to dogmatically foreclose anything. The sequence will comprise five main parts: elements, gestures, words, conflicts, desires. http://www.jeudepaume.org/index.php?page=article&idArt=2523
WEDNESDAY 19 OCTOBER
Artist studio’s visit : Xavier Veilhan
Artist Xavier Veilhan has been selected to represent France at the 57th Venice Bien nale with his project Musical Merzbau. The exhibition will be curated by artist Christian Marclay and Lionel Bovier, director of MAMCO.
Xavier Veilhan imagines an overall environment that encompasses the entire surface of the pavilion and so altering our perception of it, much in the continuity of his former immersive works The Studio (1993),The Forest and The Cave (both 1998); an installation in a formal vocabulary borrowed from the universe of the recording studio and inspired by Kurt Schwitters’ seminal work, the Merzbau. Like clearings, a few more functional spaces appear for performing, mixing or recording. Various musicians from all backgrounds are called upon to activate the structure and turn it into the ideal arena for their creations during the six months of the biennial. In this way Musical Merzbau bears witness to Xavier Veilhan’s ongoing development of exhibition platforms like The Hyperrealist Project (2003), The Glass Wall (2003) or Le Baron de Triqueti (2006), with which he continually questions the concept of the exhibition itself, in his search to somehow extend it. The pavilion becomes a place of fusion between contemporary art and music, in the framework of the Bauhaus and Black Mountain College experiments. http://www.veilhan.com/#!/fr/news?y=0&x=0

TUESDAY 20 OCTOBER
Prix Meurice pour l’art contemporain - Meeting with the nominies for the Prize
The Meurice Prize for contemporary art is an international award that concerns all disciplines in the visual and plastic arts (painting, sculpture, installation, photography, video, etc.) and distinguishes a project of international stature, proposed by an artist and their French gallery, a few weeks before the FIAC contemporary art fair in Paris. True to its commitment to promote young artistic creation, Le Meurice again invites the six finalists in the Meurice Prize for contemporary art to present one or several key. http://www.prixmeuricepourlartcontemporain.com/fr
· Jean-Luc Moulène, Solo Show
For the first time, the Centre Pompidou is devoting a monographic exhibition to Jean-Luc Moulène. Invited to compose a retrospective of his work, the artist has chosen to present a «retrospective of protocols» in the form of a production programme comprised of around thirty new pieces – a manifesto based on his research.
Through these previously unseen works, the exhibition circuit invites viewers to grasp the richness and complexity, both abstract and physical, of the artist’s world. Jean-Luc Moulène seeks to «objectivise» the world through a variety of practices, forms, and subjects. His thinking is rooted in mathematics, particularly set theory, which can function as a metaphor for social space. By using 3D design techniques, he thus explores operations such as intersection, laterality, and cutting, in the tension between body and object. His works question the shared space, the form of this space, and its intersection with individual space. While Moulène is largely known for his photography, his more recent, object-based work plays a central role today. The artist experiments meticulously with materials and employs industrial design technology to create works that must be pertinent above all.
The works’ capacity to question depends on the state of tension, rather than resolution, that they offer. Here the objects «converse» less with the viewer than with other objects. The vast setting of the exhibition space can be likened to an urban environment with cars and buildings, and bodies walking around at its centre. These bodies have to find their place in the chaos of individual desires, political constraints, and social conventions.
· 2016 PRIX MARCEL DUCHAMP : Kader Attia, Yto Barrada, Ulla von Brandenburg and Barthélémy Toguo
With this initiative, the ADIAF (association for the international dissemination of French art). and the Centre Pompidou are giving the Prix Marcel Duchamp a new impulse, with the works of the nominee Artists being presented in a single group exhibition at the Centre Pompidou. This first joint exhibition will highlight their shared prerogatives, such as an eye on current affairs, an anthropological approach and the attraction of ritual. Each year, a curator from the team of the Musée National d’Art Moderne will be associated with the concept of this collective project. http://www.adiaf.com/en/
Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard
« Paris » - Group show - Curated by the artist Isabelle Cornaro
With Anne Imhof, Clarisse Hahn, Clément Cogitore, Julien Crépieux, Louise Sartor, Marie Voignier, Mélanie Matranga et Will Benedict
The exhibition, featuring works by eight artists displayed in the Foundation's own premises and the adjoining cinema, highlights not only the diversity of artistic practices on the modern art scene but above all the prevalence of contemporary iconography drawing on images bearing some relation to current affairs or simply marked by the information circuit. The artists also share a fascination with the original context of the forms they work with and how they are transformed in and through the work of art. They can be said to share an interest in montage, both in the actual process of editing – for instance, using framing devices to pin down bodily movements or retain only material essential to the narrative – and as alterations to temporal continuity, questioning how narrative segments are arranged in succession. The works on display, whether films, static visual art, performances, or installations, are thus on the cusp between capturing movement and pinning it down, between representation and incarnation. In this sense, they meet a desire to create visual situations. http://www.fondation-entreprise-ricard.com/
Artist studio’s visit : Raphaël Zarka
Raphaël Zarka is one of a new generation of artists for whom existing cultural forms constitute the raw material for their work. The point of departure for his art, which encompasses photography, video and the written essay, is fundamentally sculptural in the expanded field of a twenty-first century artist. For many years a skateboarder and the author of several books on its history, Zarka's idea of skateboarding, as a kind of re-writing of spaces destined for a particular use, rhymes with his approach to his artistic practice. Similar to the abandoned structures built for past moments of aspiration and endeavor, and the recurrence of forms put to new uses, Zarka's reflections on skateboarding signal ecology of art making of critical and contemporary relevance. For him it's not a question of an absolute reality but rather, what it is, has been or might be depending on the position from which you view it. http://michelrein.com/
FRIDAY 21 OCTOBER
Visit of the 5th Biennale of Rennes
Curated by François Piron
Incorporated! is the suffix, shortened to Inc. which, in the language of economics, describes the transformation of a proper name into a company. In other words, the inclusion of an individual identity within a system to which it is incorporated. Be it a call, a watchword or a password, intentionally ambivalent, Incorporated! is the term which sums up our prolonged inclusion within ideologies and technologies governed by the economy. Incorporated!, which is the fifth Biennale of Les Ateliers de Rennes, pays heed to the affects caused by this incorporation. The exhibition attempts to capture what nowadays passes through bodies, affects and relations, and what, in particular, breaks down the boundaries between private and public, the unusual and the ordinary.
Twenty-nine international artists, some already recognized, others emerging, belonging to different generations, are being invited to construct an exhibition which is keen to put the perceptible experience of artworks in the forefront. Incorporated! is not the demonstration of an aesthetic line, but rather an arrangement of the most contrasted ways of reacting to the world: indignation, silence, irony, anxiety… The resources of the imagination and poetry are being called upon, and the show invites visitors to reconsider the forces of emancipation which lurk in the resistance, opaqueness and share of negativity all asserted in the works produced and brought together in the exhibition. Incorporated! is made up of ten solo and group shows. With intensities, colours and overtones that are specific to each venue, these different exhibitions are so arranged as to form a single project. http://www.lesateliersderennes.fr/les-editions/incorporated
