OPENING FRIDAY 21 OCTOBER, 5 PM
EXHIBITIONS 21 OCTOBER TO 20 NOVEMBER 2016
PROJECTION THURSDAY 3 NOVEMBER, IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE EXHIBITION AND IN COLLABORATION WITH ANTITUBE (DETAILS TO COME)

At first glance, our impression of Christian Forget is conditioned by his appearance: that of a man who is old and abnormal, whose pallid complexion and atypical body gestures and facial expressions are caused by a genetic condition that also affects his vision. Previously appearing as a staged body in earlier works by Matthieu Brouillard, Christian is here engaged in a project which is intimate to him and also improbable: flight. The photographic and video works portray him carrying out the necessary steps to go beyond his fantasy and give form to his vision. Diverting our instinctual curiosity about the anomalous, the work directs our attention to what a priori cannot be seen if not shown through actions a force at work in the pursuit of an ambition.
