    Everyday, I don't
    15 September 2018 - 05 January 2019
    Passerelle Centre d'art contemporain, Brest, France
    At the Passerelle Contemporary Art Center, Everyday, I don’t offers a seemingly empty space in which the artist stages a possible narrative for the exhibition space; a space that is waiting between installation and deinstallation. The negative impulse of the title could indeed indicate the artist’s decision to do nothing at all, which would explain this state of latent abandon. Alexandre Lavet invites us in the form of a paradox, to ask ourselves about the concept of artistic work, which is often imperceptible and difficultly quantifiable. Dispersed and fading into their environment, the artworks deploy a presence via absence, which spares us from the effect of an artwork that is too physical and voluminous and which imposes itself upon us and which demands of us a state of passivity in the face of its very existence. The artist in this way engages the visitor to make an effort to seek, to question the status of the exhibition and of the work of art, in the standardized context of exhibition spaces at the moment of a spectacular and consumerist turning point in culture.
