HORSE OF STEEL

ART ORIENTE OBJET (MARION LAVAL-JEANTET & BENOIT MANGIN)

Que le cheval vive en moi
Marion Laval-Jeantet nous le montre. En février 2011, elle réalise une performance inédite : « Que le cheval vive en moi ». Devant public, elle se fait transfuser du sang de cheval. Puis ce sang ainsi mélangé est prélevé et lyophilisé, à partir duquel une collection de huit reliquaires est réalisée. La rencontre du sang des deux espèces a produit un objet d’art : le sang de centaure. La barrière entre les espèces a été levée, levé le noli tangere et abolies les catégories de la nature.

Regisole
Spriggs’ ‘Regisole’ is inspired by the ancient equestrian statue of the same name originally erected during the 3rd century AD for a Roman Emperor in Ravenna, Italy. ‘Regisole’ means ‘Sun King’. Regis is Latin for king, and Sol means the sun. The original ‘Regisole’ was destroyed after the French Revolution since it was seen as a symbol of monarchy. Spriggs’ positioning of the police officer and horse accurately represent the description of the positioning of the original ‘Regisole’, such as with the outstretched hand of the officer in the ‘adlocutio‘ position (Latin: addressing) exercising power and authority.

THE MILL & THE CROSS

Rutger Hauer THE MILL & THE CROSS dir. Lech Majewsk Pieter Bruegel’s epic masterpiece The Way To Calvary depicts the story of Christ’s Passion set in Flanders under brutal Spanish occupation in the year 1564, the very year Bruegel created his painting. From among the more than five hundred figures that fill Bruegel’s remarkable canvas, THE MILL & THE CROSS focuses on a dozen characters whose life stories unfold and intertwine in a panoramic landscape populated by villagers and red-caped horsemen. Among them are Bruegel himself (played by Rutger Hauer), his friend and art collector Nicholas Jonghelinck (Michael York), and the Virgin Mary (Charlotte Rampling). T

Horse And Rider
“The images are, over the years, diverse in discipline and form, but always show a sense of disturbance and a multi layered story. This has resulted in a body of work with an unique personal handwriting and markable face.
Carmen and Elle have created all look-books and art-directing several shows for Bernhard Willhelm from 2001 till 2007. For recent exhibitions they integrated photography with 3-dimensional installations, projected video on photographs and printed photographs on draped silk sheets.”

le plateau
The exhibition at le plateau marks an important and new step in Epaminonda’s practice, which, as the title suggests, shall be seen as one large work building up over time through different volumes and chapters. For this occasion the artist has devised an extensive environment that occupies the cleared spaces of le plateau with a series of cubicles, platforms and screens conceived both as sculptures and presentation devices. Including other elements, films and sound—the soundscapes of the installation will be composed by the music duo “Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides”, with whom the artist often collaborated in the past—, the whole set exceeds the exhibition space itself with parallel and temporary appearances connecting the inside and outside of le plateau. Like an emphatic homage to the Japanese filmmaker Yasujiro Ozu, these performed interventions shape a kind of inhabited archipelago in constant evolution.

AND THEN, ONE THOUSAND YEARS OF PEACE
And Then, One Thousand Years of Peace is a huge, ambitious monolith of a work. First created by Angelin Preljocaj for the Bolshoi Ballet in 2010, it takes inspiration from the vision of apocalypse conjured by St John in the biblical Book of Revelation.There are no horses galloping across the stage or horned beasts. But Preljocaj sets himself a barely less daunting task: choreographing the essential meaning of apocalypse, as a cataclysm so profound it lays bare the very essence and history of human nature.Preljocaj launches his work with a shattering opening sequence. Ten women drive through hard, slicing, geometric formations; lights flash, electro-percussive music reverberates; and the air becomes as thick and swarming as a tropical thunderstorm as the movement accelerates towards its convulsive climax.Out of this intensity emerges a Garden of Eden tranquillity, where men lope and flutter in delicately animalistic moves, and two women in white tunics play like lazy cherubs.

entropy

“Entropy” installation is a thermo cam image of a horse’s body cooling down after its death. The corpse’s hottest areas are indicated with red colour and the coldest areas with blue and black. Visual evidence of life’s presence slowly vanishes as heat flees from the horse’s body. The original documentation, lasting for several hours, is edited down to a half an hour. Presented as a life-size projection.

GREGOR GAIDA

Polygonal Horse II

Gregor Gaida’s sculptures have something almost unreal, in them surrealism is powerful, there is transfiguration, symbol and narration; creates incredibly exciting sculptures in which even the elements: wood, resin and concrete mix without losing their contrasting nature. Its themes can be seen as three-dimensional snapshots, with fictional protagonists fighting and being advanced, extracted and distant from their original framework of action. In his sculptures, Gaida literally shapes this approach and stories without finishing them; many of his subjects are also physically cut in half, incomplete and, therefore, to be completed.

Reading Position for Second Degree Burn

“Reading position for second degree burn”, an experiment in which he sunbathed for five hours with a book on his torso. The Time, The Sun, the Light and the Book titled Tactics: Vol II, Cavalry Artillery, by German Colonel Balck: Would it be the Enlightenment of Iron and Fire? Is it the culture that marks our bodies as we mark horses? Or just a book that Dennis took to the beach and asleep forgot about his body?
