Zarma is an expression used to say that you pretend to be able to do something. The question of Mimesis, inherent to art history might found for during a residencie a new embodiment.It is indeed, not innocent to come with your practice and confront your practice to this chaotique town of Marseilles. Questions about identity are always emerging during this stay, in a more or less admitted way. This town jostle the visitor's senses leading to fit to the rythm of this cultural doldrums. Andreas, Hélène and Hayan try to highlight pop culture and distinctivness of each geography area that welcome them, as architectural field, historic, social or musical. However, each of them doesn't intend to become a real phocean chameleon. It is more about, unconsciously, realising a patchwork with the contradictions of Marseilles that exploses our marks and everyday codes of representation and offer a new way of reading.


Exhibition from july 8th to july 9th 2011 / Opening Friday, july 7th 2011 at 6:30 PM
at the Atelier National, 67, rue Hoche 13 003 Marseille with Marzia Rossi, Samir Ramdani, et Yannick Langlois

A « Coup de calcaire » is a popular idiom to express an unexpected and sudden anger or accident : almost like a small calcareous stone that would slowly grow in a pipe so that when it violently comes unblock under pressure it leads to the serious damages that we can imagine!

Then, we can draw some parallels between this main theme and the hanging at the Atelier National of the Triangle residents' artworks.
Literally, a common attraction to materials assembled by long and patient phenomenon of concretion, to layers aptly arranged, where powders and waste are mixing together and scattering, both attracting and rejecting each other, to fullness and emptiness, content escaping from its container which leaves one to imagine the traces of previous contents.

Furthermore, we will notice in these constructions a concentrated and vital energy that is overflowing over the tension of a resin, the minerals smithereens on a photography, a situation
that degenerate between apparently placid protagonist.

All in all, the Apollinian Art organizes, divides, structures. However, even Apollo, tempts by his dionysiac demon, under the Sun of Marseille that burns as it releases, is not safe from a sudden « coup de calcaire ».

K.Acker : The Office is a work platform from, by and through the fictional universes of author Kathy Acker. American jewish writer, close from William Burroughs, she strongly influenced as much openly as in a more underground manner many artists and authors of her generation, and certainly many others much closer from us.
The exhibition Ruling ‘n’ Freaking, occurency of K.Acker : The Office, is conceived as a protocol of evocation intended to invoke different « voices » of Acker, building parallel realities around them. The artworks of the show catalyse the effective character of nowadays appropriation protocols operating in the field of contemporary art. They are the sensitive incarnations of the artist's interest for the forms of autofiction and fantasizing as vectors of a political reconfiguration of the real by its representations, and update Acker's problematics to nowadays concerns.
