  • Laurie Charles
  • Born 1987 in Belgium. Works and lives in Brussels.

    Laurie Charles graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Bordeaux, France. Charles video-works stage friends, actors, curators and artists in a game of multiple references framed within her sculptural installations. Those narrative films are frequently contextualised inside site-specific scenographic environments made for the gallery; objects turn alive within Charles’ videos through a process of humanisation: using voices to draw absurd and polysemic dialogues. High and low, counter-culture or philosophy gather in a large pop and folk multiple faced discourse; all that research contained in a practice that meets DIY, amateurism in video and a certain “degenerated craftsmanship”. Between other venues, her work has been exhibited at Komplot (BE), Le Commissariat (FR), Villa Arson (FR) and Triangle (FR).

  • David Evrard

  • Carl Palm
  • Born 1980 in Sweden. Works and lives in Stockholm.

     

    Carl Palm builds polyhedral discourses generated form conversations between objects of plural nature. The concept of "mixed media" finds here a clearer sense through his approach to objects: it considers relations of resemblance and contrast inside the exhibition room, the changing significance of the goods through changes and displacement, and the sculpture´s own memory. Not that far from animism, Palm approaches a wide sculptural practice from a post-curatorial behaviour, researching the inner capacity of the objects to interact inside the white-cube, being specially sensitive to their previous story outside the museum. His recent and upcoming exhibitions include: MACBA (ES), Casa do Povo (BR), Inter Arts Center (SE), CAC (LT), Finnish Institute (SE), Galeri Invaliden 1 (DE), Komplot (BE) and the 12th Istanbul Biennale (TR).

Curated by Alberto García del Castillo.


“When I wrote the following pages, or rather the bulk of them, I lived alone, in the woods, a mile from any neighbor, in a house which I had built myself, on the shore of Walden Pond, in Concord, Massachusetts, and earned my living by the labor of my hands only. I lived there two years and two months. At present I am a sojourner in civilized life again.” - Henry David Thoreau, Walden or Life in the Woods, 1854

 

“Growing up in a rural factory town I watched my creative family extend the grind of their monotonous jobs outside the factory walls and into their lives until they were no longer capable of accessing their artistic abilities. The factory essentially divorced them from their sense of their essential selves. This wouldn’t happen to me, I thought, and moved to a large city to foster my skills as an artist and to surround myself with like-minded people. For many years this was feeling right, that I was doing exactly what I came to do, not working in the factory back home. But in 2005 when visiting my family for a reunion I listened again to their stories about the factory, and as always these stories saddened me. On the train ride home I had an epiphany that I had been treating my poetry like a factory, an assembly line, and doing so in many different ways, from how I constructed the poems, to my tabbed and sequenced folders for submissions to magazines, etc.” - CAConrad, “Introduction to (Soma)tic Poetry Rituals”, Ecodeviance, 2014

 

“Growing up, [Frankie] Knuckles used to think that he had two strikes against him. Like his best friend [Lawrence Philpot], he was black, and he was gay. He doesn’t think that way now, of course, but times have changed. The clubs he and Levan went to in their teens helped forge that change, giving people who lived on the margins of their own communities, let alone society as a whole, a place where – for a night at least – they could transcend everything, where they could be themselves, lose themselves.” - Sheryl Garratt, Adventures In Wonderland: A Decade of Club Culture, 1998
