MARC ETIENNE AT GSS IN 2017

Triangle France and the Glasgow Sculpture Studios, Scotland, have established an artist exchange programm that will provide an artist based in Marseille-Provence with the opportunity to spend 3 months in residency at Glasgow Sculpture Studios.

Marc Etienne
www.etiennemarc.com
Born in 1987, lives and works in Marseille.

According to the disposition in which it is found, the hermit crab grants different meanings to the sea anemone. It assigns a protective, residential or nutritional function. Marc Etienne proposes pieces that are at once chatty and laconic, absurd and logical, obvious and blurry, indecisive and sliced. He likes not to crystallize the outlines, to change the workmanship, the dimensions, the meaning according to The occurrence. One way maybe for him not to make too hasty a decision. A constant, however, emerges from this "chosen indecision". It is the posture of the fan that it adopts and that integrates to its methodology. There are different ways of being a fan, different degrees of adoration. Marc Etienne likes to say that he "believes in it" when he constructs his forms that he calls "stories". Like a fan, with his own economy, his own temporality, he will apply himself to reproduce by hand details of the accoutrement of a singer that will have pleased him. A film music, a phrase from a piece of rap, the generous curves of a rn'b singer will be so many pretexts for him to realize monumental forms of wood, concrete or metal than meticulous models in rods Or drawings in the wash drawing. These productions all bear (more or less ostentatiously, in any case always claimed) the traces of the gestures performed by the artist. "Traces of working time, labour or traces of pleasure". The hermit crab gives the anemone the chance to play several roles in its perceptual field and in its evolution. Marc Etienne takes forms that he loads of another past, another present while leaving them the possibility of enriching themselves with different future events.

Immediately after obtaining his or her DNSEP Beaux Arts of Lyon in 2010, Marc says he is time to work 30 hours per week for earn money to finance future projects and pay his rent. He quickly found a job diver in a small restaurant. He will wash plates and casseroles for eight months. He is not passionate about this work but he have the time to think, to cogitate while he is at the work. He is often said that he has not studies to "get there". On Going back and forth from work he listens to Booba in his walkman, who says in a piece "I'm not born to do the plunges ". This amuses Marc at the same time as it saddens her. He tells himself that he misses his life trying to win it. At the same time, this manual activity, solitary and repetitive nourishes his dreamy mind. And all the days when he returns from work, he draws, élaborantes the scenarios, ideas for future works using his fingers crumpled and attacked by the dishwater.
At the end of eight months of diving, Marc is taken in residence with Stephen Balkhenol, which will finally allow him to work the materials other than the dishes: the wood. He then joined Asterides, Fugitive in Leipzig, Moly Sabata. Since he stopped washing dishes, he realizes objects, drawings, thinking about the dishes he had washed.

Pragmatism is the driving force for a practice looking to make the most of the junk spewed out by the consumption circuit – everyday objects made for everyday planned obsolescence – and by the revamped paradigms of the industrial past. This is experimentation on the scale of a unique undertaking whose cost can only (maybe) be measured against a purpose often lurking in the pleasures of a parallel economy bent on pushing space to its limits. These objects and devices make no secret of their presence, still vibrant with traces of their original design and all the adjustments and retouchings, all the ruses and crafty bricolage brought to bear on the savoir-faire behind a found spare part, on the tweakings and the technical and technological appropriations being pumped out on the networks. And the force harnessed in the device sets up a full-time tension in the exhibition space, an energy to be shared. Lise Guéhénneux

YANN GÉRAUD AT LUGAR A DUDAS
Next of Monica Restrepo coming to our residency program, last winter 2010, in our studios in Marseille, Yann Géraud has been in residencie at Lugar A Dudas, in Colombia...


" What do you see from where you stand ? "

This sentence, extracted from a song of Tony Touch (Spoken Word, The Peacemaker 2, 2004), lays by my side at each moment. It helps me, backs me, strengthens me and questions me always and again. First, because it's a matter of vision, and also a matter of position and, finally, of point of view. I neither can nor want to give a definition of the world in which I live, for to define involves the end, the stop and the non-movement. However I want to try to circumscribe it, to surround it and to get close to it sideways through the shapes I create. This is a position and these shapes I make are the affirmation of these positions. These shapes are markers set on a trajectory, a movement of excitement and precipitation.
I work in this idea of art that consists in binding and unbinding, weaving, interweaving or undoing cleverly, crumbling, shredding, pulverizing the surface or space in an infinity of fragments that finishes to mass.
I gather those fragments in a kind of obstinacy, a headless obstinacy coming from entrails. I invent communities of shapes and I want that they be communities of equals and join together in one point, which is the sculpture. They must let appear nor a reductionist thought, but a thought bare in its abundance, embracing a unattainable totality.
How to give shape to this swarm of the thought, this effect of anthill, of crawling and of multitude, this hecticness ? The thought would be that which comes to disrupt the shape and jostles an overperfect order. Not that this one could be consider as a pure disorder, but rather as an overcomplex order, a muddle and a superposition of different readable orders if taken separately, but which reading becomes nearly impossible when all the elements are united in a single shape.
What is in play, it's finally the complexity of the thought taking shape. And at that very moment, I invoke the radicalness of acting out to exhort this meeting of art and life, of Ares and Aphrodite; the violent assertion of gesture that precipitates and crystallizes the thought and decision into the shape.
My work is the battleground of this war between the imperialism of the shape, the all-power of the thought inescapably structuring and structured, and the temptation of the unreadable, of the unspeakable and of the unnamable. Y.G
