INCLUDE ME OUT
26 October 2013 – 19 January 2014
at Musée d’art contemporain du Val-de-Marne,
“INCLUDE ME OUT” is constructed around a simple, yet essential question: is it Time going through us, or are we going through Time? Although Time is calculable, it is, by essence, ineffable. How can we translate the experience of the elasticity of Time? The exhibition unfolds like a initiatory trip, taking the visitor through the artist’s recent creations and key works. Upon entry, one is invited to abandon their certitudes and dwell in a zone of doubt, the territory of art. From darkness to the light and back again, the question of blindness is broached. What do we see? How do we see? How can we represent the unshowable? Auguste-Dormeuil’s works mark steps in a circuit through territories of suspense, like so many tools for analysis. They are the plastic representations for reflection and the questioning of our relationship with reality.
