until 01.10. | #0744ARTatBerlin | Gallery oqbo shows from 03. September 2016 the exhibition Rencontres Improbables (The Secret Encounters Of Kusama Kalthoum) by amongst others Jayce Salloum and Mireille Kassar.
Rencontres Improbables is to be considered as a stance, a sort of “pause” belonging to a much more global motion.
Making a mark, the proposition is intense rather than merely a sampling, a set of statements of presence and articulations of being.
The project is founded upon the idea of “intensity” rather than of “expansion” or “addition”. It is a summation of joint forces.
There is no frivolity, or at least if there is, it will be for relief; for moments of plea- sure to counter the weight we feel tasked with, the meanings we are driven to make.
These meanings are a matrix of lives, struggles, energies, sculpting the space and engaging the visitor. (Jayce Salloum & Mireille Kassar)
