Maxime Le Bon, Odds & Ends

The drawings by Maxime Le Bon grouped together for his exhibition Odds & Ends at rue_du_chapeau_10 make me think of a Japanese corporation–its inner workings, to be precise. The drawings aren’t in any way about a Japanese corporation. Rather, their apparent chaos-turned-coherent speaks to me about deeply structured things that we can’t structure from without, like a Japanese corporation; in the shoes of a Toyota worker, I'd be very familiar with the institution’s law and order, things alien to me if those shoes were off. Another point is whether I should care about someone else’s procedures.


My attempted answer is that people end up drawn to things that are dramatically odd, like Odds & Ends. Pen marks shaping an abstracted flower bunch on a yellowed paper exist near a cutout page with ink gestures in its margins, and a skeleton. A jigsawed house mingles with a comma. Carnivalesque faces on the wall, skewed and textured, tie the room together. This is what Le Bon gives us, and I am sold. Someone, the artist, gave a fair amount of thought in first making and then joining these things–must not there be a reason, a rationale, an agenda? Le Bon’s selection of drawings invites you to seek meaning; the pictures and figures are minimally given to you, stripped, like signs–things that must signify when put together. Soaking them in, I feel close to those who uprooted ancient hieroglyphs, a language nobody had read for 3000 years.


However, I suspect that the point of Odds & Ends is not to waste time interpreting. I am invited but I don’t attend, and that’s good enough. Even though there might be some sort of relevant truth in the mind of the artist, him who delivers it through a disparate selection of drawings, I want to keep the exhibition away from utilitarianism and believe it doesn’t want to teach me. It’s sufficient for me to experience that pleasing alienation of not being in Le Bon’s shoes, while guessing they exist, and they might even look smart. I am reminded of how psychologist Théodore Flournoy recalled a medium séance and his spiritual interaction with Esenale, the main interpreter of Martian language in the early 20th century (according to him):


"Esenale has gone away ... he has left me alone ... but he will return, ... he will soon return. ... He has taken me by the hand and made me enter the house. ... I do not know where Esenale is leading me, but he has said to me, 'Dode ne haudan te meche metiche Astane ke de me veche.'"1

Jason Dodge, They lifted me into the sun again and packed my skull with cinnamon


"They lifted me into the sun again and packed my skull with cinnamon" is an exhibition as an edition of six shown in six venues simultaneously during the last week of October and the first week of November. Participating venues include MOREpublishers with Gevaert Editions (Brussels), Guimaraes (Vienna), Akwa Ibom (Athens), Gern en Regalia (NYC), Gilles Drouault galerie/multiples (Paris), and Galleria Franco Noero (Torino).

The exhibition begins with the artist not being there, in all the different ways that "not there" can mean. Absence becomes a component of the show, which the title, borrowed from a poem by Thomas James titled "Mummy of a Lady Named Jemutesonekh XXI Dynasty," further highlights. The poem charts the ultimate presence of absence, death, as a complex entanglement of the corporeal and the spiritual. The narrator describes their own mummification process, described impartially as an emptying and filling method that treats the body as an aesthetic, artistic object. While within the poem's bounds, the spirit remains mostly autonomous, Dodge's exhibition negotiates a spiritual, also authorial presence that actively involves others in its corporeal becoming. A set of specific items: 20 Bayer Aspirin advertisements, a missing animal flyer, loose Marigold petals, batteries, forks, and fabric, and a found shopping list, is sent to each space to be installed following instructions sent electronically by the artist. Within this set of instructions is the; conversational, improvisational, and accumulative, employment of different practices, other bodies, and touches, the exhibition's own poetics is animated through a series of choices akin to the translator's entanglement in a poem. In each incarnation of this exhibition Dodge has asked someone to perform the installation as a surrogate, here in Brussels the installation will be performed by Tom Engels.

The dancer and choreographer Alix Eynaudi has composed a score to follow in order to install all of the exhibitions. The score addresses the buying of the items listed in the shopping list and to unpack them in the room; things understood firstly as products to be consumed inside the body, applied outside the body, and to clean what the body uses. Unrelated to randomness, but open to interpretation, this show builds on Dodge's previous habit of inviting friends and colleagues to lend titles and texts to his exhibitions, but here inspires a freer movement in a conversation with things, an improvisation using a shared score that is not concluded by a single iteration.

Pietro Gaglianó, Le Voci
"Durante la residenza Commonwealth a Scheggia in Umbria si sono svolte alcune conversazioni con gli abitanti alla ricerca di memorie dirette o tramandate sul tempo della seconda Guerra Mondiale, del passaggio della linea gotica, dell’arrivo degli alleati. Alcune parole comuni e brevi frasi, ricorrenti in tutti gli incontri, sono state scelte e stampate e disposte in vari spazi del paese come un coro di voci sul tempo, sui luoghi e sulla memoria."
