n tout cas, je crois que l'inquietude d'aujourd'hui concerne fondamentalement l'espace, sans doute beaucoup plus que le temps; le temps n'apparait probablement que comme l'un des jeux de distribution possibles entre les elements qui se repartissent dans l'espace.» Michel Foucault «Des espaces autres» (1967), Hétérotopies

Michelle Marie Murphy & Cetusss - SKIRT I


A propos de '' Tissu a l'helium '' (ou comment parer à des obstacles techniques avec un peu d’imagination...) Tentative de Numéro de Tissu Aérien au FAR 2012. Spectormance, mi spectacle, mi performance, cet objet d’environ 20 minutes a pour centre un concept simple : une solution, une alternative aux conditions classiques permettant la pratique du tissu aérien (discipline traditionnelle de cirque). Concrètement, mon tissu

accroché à 40 ballons de 1m50 (ma taille) de diamètre gonflés à l’hélium. Un numéro de tissu aérien, pensé de manière classique et traditionnelle, à cela près qu’il sera dicté et perturbé par les nouvelles conditions. Jeux d’équilibre, haut-bas, terreciel, souplesse-rigidité, ordinairespectaculaire, cohérenceincohérence, échec-réussite... Un concept issu d’une rêverie, d’une idée simple et poétique.


Une nouvelle tentative pour moi d’effacer les frontières entre les domaines, entre l’art contemporain, la performance, le cirque contemporain et les arts vivants. Chloé Démétriades

l est significatif que Brancusi ait ete obsede toute sa vie par ce qu'il appelait l'essence du vol. Mais il est extraordinaire qu'il ait reussi a exprimer l'elan ascensionnel en utilisant l'archetype meme de la pesanteur, la matiere par excellence, la pierre.

A propos de '' Rokkaku '' « Marqué par le souvenir d’un festival de cerfs-volants traditionnels vécu en Indonésie, l’artiste genevois propose pour la Terrasse du troc une performance qui s’apparente à ce rituel festif, frissonnant et bruyant. Cette fois, ce sera une immense peau animale qui prendra son envol au-dessus du public et des arbres, accompagnée dans son ascension par le musicien Francis Fruit … roulez tambours… »

Berndnaut Smilde - Nimbus II


About Nimbus

ÂŤ I imagined walking into a classical museum hall with just empty walls. There was nothing to see except for a rain cloud hanging around in the room. You could see the cloud as a sign of misfortune. You could also read


Berndnaut Smilde - Nimbus D’Aspremont

it as an element out of the Dutch landscape paintings in a physical form in a traditional museum space. With Nimbus (2010), on the one hand I wanted to create an ominous situation, at the same 75

time, an almost cartoon like visualization of having bad luck. I wanted to make the image of a typical Dutch (rain) cloud inside a space. The Nimbus works exists as photographic prints. The first Nimbus I made in Probe, a small scale testlab for artprojects. On a scale of 1:4. I’ve transformed the exhibition space into a classical museum hall. The second Nimbus I recently realized on a conventional size in the chapel of Maria Kapel. My latest cloud piece Nimbus D’Aspremont I made in an empty castle in Belgium. By combining smoke, moist and backlighting, I created the image of a cloud. I’m interested in the ephemeral aspect of the work. It’s there for a brief moment and then the cloud falls apart. It is the short moment in time on a specific location that is represented. The photo functions as a document. I often work with situations that deal with duality. They question: inside and outside, temporality, size, the function of materials and architectural elements. In this case also natural and unnatural. I think it is interesting when a work functions in-between reality and representation in a way that it has potential but will never function. » Berndnaut Smilde
