** Screamscape

Multiple authors

 

Dans le cadre du Screamscape - qui prend place à Fri Art de juin à septembre 2015 - Clinamen développe un projet d’édition récursif et fragmentaire qui rendra compte non seulement des événements qui s’y passent mais également de l’architecture conceptuelle du projet; sa temporalité, sa dynamique. La publication rend compte du “multiple” de la semaine en étant à la fois dans l’archive, la diffusion et le vivant. Il s’agit avant tout d’être dans la poursuite du concept et non pas uniquement dans le témoignage.

 

 

** Temps à devenir: à propos de l’histoire du temps

 

Ilya Prigogine

 

Everyone knows that after the death of Mozart, there would be no second "Don Juan." After the death of Michelangelo, there would be no second Sistine Chapel. But we sometimes think that science is an almost automatic process: for example, if Einstein had not existed, there would have been someone else who would have discovered general relativity. Nothing is less certain! On the contrary, I think that if Einstein had not existed, we would perhaps not have relativity in its current form.

 

A Belgian physicist and chemist of Russian origin, and Laureate of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1977, Ilya Prigogine revitalized science thanks to his rich theories in the study of problems as varied as automobile traffic, insect societies and the growth of cancerous cells. He is the author of numerous scientific works in which he tackles fundamental questions of matter, emptiness and time.

 

 

 

 

** Aiko

Kim Seob Boninsegni

 

Aiko is a novel, a writing exercise based on several research axes whose storyline rewrites the history of one person – of the artist, without being himself – in order to create a fictional character that is at once singular and global.

With an interest in societal phenomena such as Juggalos, swatting, the Kanto earthquake, kiviak - and through representatives of generations Y and Z – this fresco allows for the artist's generation to accept what it was and will be again: A generation at once pre-digital and pioneering in this domain, the first having been birthed by artist capitalism,a multiple generation, profoundly melancholy and placed at the crossroads of numerous histories. For this project, Clinamen joins up with Intermèdes Géographiques (France) and Rosa Brux (Belgium) in order to put in place a nomadic exhibition and several events in Besançon, Geneva and Brussels.

All while reinterrogating the recurrences and themes that have marked the work of Kim Seob Boninsegni, this writing is conceived of as an illuminated wandering. In an epoch in which the narrative once again invades the field of art, this story allows us to better grasp the mechanisms at the foundation of our way of making choices and inserting ourselves into evermore complex social ensembles.

Tacit Knowledge

The first kites took flight in the 4th century BC. Their use by the Chinese was mainly in the military. Kites served as signals, message carriers, scare tactics against enemies or to evaluate distances. Since that time the kite has become a symbol of freedom. First and foremost a child's toy, it has been banned in all the major dictatorships, from the Khmer Rouge of Cambodia to the Taliban of Afghanistan.

For this project, Clinamen joins with Intermèdes Géographiques (France) and Rosa Brux (Belgium) in order to establish a traveling exhibition and several events in Besançon, Geneva and Brussels. PIPA brings out notions of borders, the status of the citizen with regard to the foreigner, as well as possible or unimaginable circulation, etc. – so many questions that are once again at the center of European and international news.
