    La cigarette n'a pas le même goût au soleil
    19 November 2016 - 14 January 2017
    Dürst Britt & Mayhew, The Hague, Netherlands
    "For his first solo exhibition at Dürst Britt & Mayhew, Alexandre Lavet invites audiences to reflect on the exhibition space’s hidden structures, which can be understood by strolling and slow observation. For the viewer this implies a change of perception, taking responsibility of one’s own gaze and the impossibility of a brisk pace. The ‘residues’, ‘gestures’ and ‘acts’ that Lavet proposes are eloquent remnants of a mode of living. Gentle and ineffable, the artist’s whispered rumours divert attention from the objects usually presented in an exhibition space. Thus a (re-)sensitised relationship with the ‘White Cube’ and similar modes of presentation is being established. Singular and indescribable as a cigarette smoked in the sun, the enjoyment of the moment offered is an articulate and sentimental experience of emptiness, a discreet celebration of bare necessities and the subtle art of doing next to nothing."
