FOXY PRODUCTION PRESENTS:
‘LES LETTRES TRISTES’ – a collaboration between New York-based artists
LUCAS AJEMIAN and JULIEN BISMUTH, that investigates the creative potential of detours through language, action and image. Taking the experience of distraction as their starting point, the artists discursively explore the experience of being diverted from ones train of thought !!
‘LES LETTRES TRISTES’ (The Sad Letters) refers to the LETTRISTES, the members of the avant-garde group, established in mid-century Paris, who used letters, hieroglyphics and other graphic symbols to create wildly experimental films, poetry, and art-wroks. Like a snapshot of LETTERISME itself, the exhibition combines key features of a number of MODERNIST movements, including Abstractionism, Dada, and Situationism, to generate a constellation of inter-related writing, video and objects.
