Amandine Alessandra, Marine Baudrillard, Carole Lévesque, Katharina Niemeyer et Magali Uhl, Écran total
La machine d’absence | The Absence Machine

By Edward Pérez­-González

The result of a research project around Jean Baudrillard’s reflection on the notion of the “total screen,” this exhibition brings together seven artists who comment on the omnipresence of the screen and its effects on our lives. According to critic Edward Pérez-González, “the works that form the core of the exhibition are based on the critical vision of the world of Baudrillard the philosopher ... a world in which the statement becomes the screen itself.” Baudrillard the photographer, whose images are present in the exhibition, proposes, as Pérez-González writes, “to capture the value of experience ... of the ‘I’ that I am.” It is this subjectivity, linked to a body of work attentive to light, that is tending to disappear in the era of screens. “Through the accumulation of sequences, decontextualization, and schematization,” Pérez-González summarizes, “a disconnected world is shown and scrutinized soullessly.”
