When I first met Quentin, my daily run slowed down. Look at his work on the internet, I also recommend you to follow him on instagram: He is a raising artist.
I can’t tell you everything yet.
Quentin questions, in my opinion, our (living) spaces and their environment (an activity in a context) and dialogues in three stages (on three exhibitions on different dates) with 3 artists.
After the enigmatic voices of the writer Ninaleger – Exhibition 1 – whose echoing murmurs (speakers were arranged in the exhibition) gave voice to Quentin’s movable partitions.
Here are Ronan’s Fly Poursuit in Video. Ronan arranged the sculptures extracted from burnt beams between the walls.
The process instantly reminds me of Lee Bae (on which I wrote a post in my feed a few months ago.
The material is heavy and chiseled into pieces, yet each piece seems impatient to jump and fly away. The impression of lightness gives a balance that I feel even in the atmosphere and architecture of the place. As we did the voices before (they were invisible…), these works disperse the space between the partitions.
I also think @Junyaishigami who questions the space in the middle of nature (also previous post).
What I feel in Quentin’s work is the question of our space today and our relative independence – what can the community of tomorrow be, how can it divide up spaces to breathe, when there are more and more of us, and what will be the place of each one? – in a world where social ties are changing.
Here, it’s also about the escape.
A poetic escape, as I like it.
