Description

Cell Project Space invites Anna Colin, Cédric Fauq and Sean Roy Parker to join chair Juliette Desorgues in conversation on the occasion of Pulsion Potion, solo exhibition by Mimosa Echard.The event will be held in the building adjascent to the gallery through the yard entrance.

Central to the exhibition and a point of departure for the event is Echard’s film ‘The People’. Shot over five years in the community and village where the artist grew up in the Cevennes mountains, France, it was rebuilt entirely in the 1970s as the result of a community wanting to extract itself from the complications of modern life. The slow pace of the villagers is portrayed as a colony of snails layered and disappearing beneath the pervading flood of consumables and technology. Nearly thirty years later, the questions of what is left of the dream, the idyll isolation and the organisation of labour for the common good go beyond the image of Echard’s captured memories of utopian youth.

In the wake of today’s political climate artists need to respond to increasing development and growth in the capital and find ways to deal with its resulting cultural polarization. Questioning whether escape is really an alternative or can provide true relevancy, discussions will focus on a quieter resistance that uses bolder strategies to move away from established modes of education, labour and workplace. The three invited speakers all share a common momentum; to transfer and share knowledge, adopting communitarianism to combat the isolation of the city, and nurture realistic economies for artists to work in. The event will explore these various modes of autonomous zones using the panel’s first hand knowledge. The gallery will be open for an opportunity to view the exhibition before and after the event.
