La Chambre #11 : AGNES GEOFFRAY

 

Exhibition from Oct. 17th to Dec. 12th 2015

 

The work of Agnès Geoffray balances between reality and fiction, between everyday and unthinkable situations. Her photographs, installations and videos combine the unknown with the terrifying, like in popular fairy tales. A fascination with the visible and invisible traces of disorder, or even disaster, in everyday situations and events underlies the texts, photographs, videos and slide shows in STUK. In almost entirely white photographs, gruesome compositions inspired by media images, or compositions we are familiar with from the traditional iconography, evade the public's eye. In a few light boxes the artist presents short fragments from known texts that refer to presence and absence. A slide show with drawings flashes by—the tempo is too high for the images to stick to the retina. In the video Interview or how my parents died or how did I get involved in art , Geoffray constructs an imaginary past. She appropriates images and scenes from a collective memory and wants to draw attention to the real meaning of events that are evoked by words and images.

Agnes Geoffray, Les Messagers, 8 miniature manuscripts, framed. 2 magnifying glasses


This series of microscopic manuscripts originates from any hidden message between cracks, in books, in the lining of clothes... From messages of passage to the passing of messages, Agnès Geoffray transcribes textual fragments from members of the resistance and from prisoners as an ultimate act of resistance against established power who exist within the context of penitentiary or judicial power, or totalitarian regimes. These texts, literary in their own right, reveal a real poetic violence. At the intersection of Dali's Involuntary sculptures photographed by Brassaï and Robert Walser's Micrograms, these tiny manuscripts originate from sculpture and writing equally. Like her other works, The Messengers explores the ambivalence and the importance of gesture, demonstrating a concentrated, precise and slow movement, which meets the eye.

 

"come hell or high water, standing your ground"

"one must have a strong mind and a soft heart"
"I never knew it was so easy to die, see you later, in a couple of minutes, or for eternity"
"mass-murderer, moloch, infamous, mini-megalomaniac, stincky mouth, foul beast, scourge of God, deceitful man, butcher, putrid paunch gorged with blood"
"defying opposite forces"
"remember, remember, remember, remember ..."
"a fetid stench reigns over everything, a fetid stench reigns over everything .."

"the deep shades are veiled by an odd detachment"
