This online meander through FIAC inspired the beginnings of two imaginary exhibitions. The first, Surréalité, a dreamlike interlude that could be deployed within a psychedelic fictional manor, such as Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, and Hesam Rahmania’s castle of obsessions, haunted by Lois Weinberger’s Green Man, Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s ghosts, Dorothy Iannone’s ecstatic lover, Peter Saoul’s funky painter, or Jakob Lena Knebl’s polymorphic bodies.

FIAC OVR | Through the Eyes of | X Zhu-Nowell

If we consider an artwork a thing that inherently contains various sets of relationships, constellations of ideas, ways of making, and genealogies, then my work here is to suggest a few connecting threads that weave through these already overlapping and interconnected worlds. My selection of works for FIAC doesn’t follow an overarching theme, logic, or historical narrative, but there are a few running themes that connect different artist practices and strands of thinking with each other. One...

FIAC OVR | Through the Eyes of | Bernard Blistène

Whether “face-to-face” or not, any choice is a commitment to an imperfect cause. So I decided, or took it upon myself – whichever you prefer – to select only fifteen artists from the French scene and, what’s more, these artists are not (yet) present in our collections. The list will be surprising and even surprised me! So it just goes to show that the attraction of an artwork is stronger than any prejudice. Who could complain about that?Bernard BlistèneBernard Blistène has been the director of...
