The exhibition will elaborate on the issue of the modern solitude taking in consideration its different aspects: personal and sentimental, poetic and social, but also political, – as a sort of intuitive rumination on this widely spread phenomenon. The idea of loneliness which we aim to expose will remind you of a tender and nostalgic feeling we have all experienced after an overwhelming night out; a flashback which brings you back to joyful sensations that are nothing but memories now, pushing you to seek comfort and consolation that would help you fill the void created by something already gone.

We are looking to seize the symptoms of solitude and to understand its premises: the increasing speed of our way of living, the individualism and distinctiveness dictated by the society, the alienation rooted in the expansion of the digital world, the isolation of subject facing political system, not to mention its fragmentation and self-dispersion in superficial relationships and, of course, dissatisfaction, frustration et al. Yet above all, we would like to create a special ambience by speaking very personally about a particular state that each and every one is experiencing in his life from time to time. What we are trying to depict is an intimate and somehow vulnerable, slightly melancholic and sometimes anxious version of “us”. A state in which everyone can recognize him/herself even though not everyone would be eager to admit it openly.

.

L’exposition portera sur la problématique de la solitude contemporaine que nous aborderons sous de multiples angles — personnel et sentimental, poétique, social et politique — afin de mener une réflexion intuitive sur les formes que ce phénomène revêt dans le contexte contemporain. La notion de solitude dont nous traitons dans ce projet s’exprime à travers des formes douces affectées d’une forme de nostalgie : les souvenirs d’une fête passée, un désir de retrouver le réconfort ou un léger malaise dont nous avons tous fait l’expérience au lendemain d’une soirée festive.

Nous aimerions saisir les symptômes de la solitude et déduire ses prémisses — la vitesse accélérée de notre mode de vie, l’individualisme que nous impose la société, l’aliénation provenant de l’expansion du monde digital, l’isolation du sujet face au système politique, sans oublier sa fragmentation et auto-dispersion dans des rapports intersubjectifs et superficiels ou encore son insatisfaction ponctuelle ou globale. Mais, avant tout, nous souhaitons créer une ambiance et parler de quelque chose à la fois paradigmatique et personnel, en faisant ressortir cet état particulier que chacun d’entre nous a vécu à un moment ou à un autre. Enfin, ce que nous cherchons à saisir, c’est une version intime et vulnérable, subtilement mélancolique et parfois angoissée de « nous », version dans laquelle tout le monde peut se reconnaître sans toujours oser se l’avouer.
