This event has ended.
“Reciprocal Reliance” is a group exhibition by French artists Anne-Charlotte Finel, Enzo Mianes, and Anne-Charlotte Yver. The exhibition reflects on our era of diversity, in which every city develops and shares its own culture, a system of values and aesthetics. Welcoming promising artists and a curatorial collective based in Paris, it seeks for a point of cultural relevance which resonates with the art scene here in Tokyo today.
The artists work on a shared installation, in which each work simultaneously exists as a single entity and as a part of a broader environment. The ecosystem of the exhibition relies on an inclusive and trustful approach towards artistic creation that lays the bases for an open-ended dialogue among its components and shows how vulnerable relationships among living organisms can be.
Anne-Charlotte Yver’s works embody the exoskeleton of the installation that maintains the complex system of elements together. Her plexiglass and steel structure evokes a twilight zone in which something has either just happened or is about to happen. Enzo Mianes combines volumes and bi-dimensional objects fostering a parallel between humanity and nature. The plexiglass showcase grows up from the floor like a stalagmite, creating a tension with Anne-Charlotte Yver’s horizontal structure. Like a gash on the outside world, Anne-Charlotte Finel’s videos visually extend the limits of the scenery and engage the viewer in a profound contemplation of an elsewhere. A synthetic sound flows from multiple sources and pervades each element of the show, acting like an amniotic fluid. The exhibition is curated by Curate It Yourself. French DJ and producer Voiski has created the sound track for the show.
