We care!

Chère Marion, Cher Corentin,

Quelles sont les lignes de démarcations ? Celles qui ont marqué les plusieurs vies de New Galerie sans affecter sa force motrice. Presque une décennie, que l’on peut redécouper en plusieurs cycles, plusieurs zones, n’épousant ni la règle des formats, ni celle des géographies. L’ancrage local ? Le sentiment d’appartenance à l’époque ? La spécialisation en médium ? Who cares ? Plutôt l’achoppement, les rencontres de circonstances, les intuitions divines auxquels les artistes, ami(e)s, coléoptères, auront survécus par le nombre des années.  Etre touché, se rendre disponible à, agir, appeler, rappeler, maintenir la conversation, s’affirmer dans le champ de voix et des contre-voix, tourbillonner, ne pas faillir sera suffisant. Au milieu des décombres, on ne trie pas ses déchets. Syndrome de Diogène ? Mal du mois du Mai ? Volonté graduelle de faire communauté ? A ceux qui ne respectent pas les règles, qui refusent d’être intelligibles par les lois et les administrations, reste la puissance des familles dysfonctionnelles.

Des Buddenbrook, des Rostov, des Buendia, des Hamel, des Dana ? Au-delà des familles épiques et nucléaires du XXème s’élabore de nouvelles lignes communes, des filiations atomisées sautant les générations, ou pour citer l’homme de Vaugirard : des amitiés comme mode de vies.  2019 commence bien. Nébulosité, risque de givrage, de brouillard, de turbulence, de piste verglacée. Evitons les catastrophes aériennes. Tentons un ménage à trois selon la théorie des ensembles (Acconci), les amnésies volontaires (Bajagic), les scénarios inopinés (Jung), l’objectification extrême (Jeong). Parlons de nos paraphilies ! Vampirisme clinique (Sishun), érotomanie résurrectionnelle (Myrup), cruising Buto à la clinique de la Borde (Pain), éthique de la contamination (Reynaud Dewar). Faisons famille autour de groupes de paroles ! Ré-ouvrons les greniers, les appartements vides et les salles de cinémas où dormait la petite fille aux allumettes. Convoquons Sainte-Ludivine et la belle aux cheveux d’or (Solal), les danseuses berlinoises exilées dans la cité des anges (Littot) et les lueurs de bords de routes (Sishun). Evoquons la rue Louise Weiss et ses boites de bonbons aux sucres évaporés (Gonzales-Torres), ses chaises malingres et ses résilles sentimentales, ses jambes cassées et son militantisme au seuil de la mort, seuls testaments des hôpitaux.

Le rideau de fer peut bien être tiré et avec lui les distinctions (That’s All folks !). Etre concerné par sa vie, accessoirement celles des autres, c’est refuser le souffle court, c’est faire du car-jacking et être car-jacké, être prédateur et proie ensanglantée. Au risque de ce partage, s’épanouit une lueur (Zevs), un insecte au creux de notre main (Wojnarowicz) qui s’étant toujours cru seul tressaute devant son affidé. They care. What’s up doc? Who cares?

We care !

Dear Marion, Dear Corentin,

We care! What are the lines of demarcation? Those that have marked the many lives of New Galerie without affecting its driving force. Almost a decade, which can be cut up into several cycles, several zones, neither marrying the rule of formats nor that of geographies. Local anchoring? The feeling of belonging to one’s time? The specialization of the medium? Who cares? Rather obstacles, chance meetings, divine intuitions that artists, friends, beetles, will have survived through the number of years. To be moved, to be available for, to act, to call, to call back, to keep the conversation going, to assert oneself in the field of voices and counter-voices, to swirl round and round, not to fail will be enough. In the middle of rubble, you do not triage your garbage. The Diogenes syndrome? The malaise of the month of May? A gradual will to become a community? The power of dysfunctional families is all that is left to those who do not respect rules, who refuse to be intelligible according to laws and administrations.

Buddenbrooks, Rostovs, Buendias, Hamels, Danas? Beyond the epic and nuclear families of the twentieth century, new common lines are being developed, atomized filiations skipping generations, or to quote the man from Vaugirard: friendships as a way of life. 2019 starts well. Cloudiness, risk of icing, fog, turbulence, ice-covered roads . Let’s avoid air disasters. Let’s try a threesome according to set theory (Acconci), voluntary amnesia (Bajagić), unexpected scenarios (Jung), extreme objectification (Jeong).Let’s talk about our paraphilias! Clinical vampirism (Sishun), resurrectional erotomania (Myrup), Buto cruising at the La Borde clinic (Pain), ethic of contamination (Reynaud Dewar). Let’s become family around groups of words! Let’s open back up the attics, the empty apartments and the movie theaters where the little match girl slept. Let’s convoke Saint-Ludivine and the beautiful golden-haired maiden (Solal), the Berlin dancers exiled in the city of angels (Littot) and the lights along the sides of the road (Sishun). Let’s talk about la rue Louise Weiss and her boxes of evaporated sugar candies (Gonzales-Torres), her malignant chairs and her sentimental fishnet stockings, her broken legs and her activism on the verge of death, the only wills from hospitals.

The iron curtain can well be drawn and with that its differences (That’s all folks!). To be concerned with one’s life, incidentally with those of others, is to refuse easy solutions. It is to car-jack and to be car-jacked, to be the predator and the blood-covered prey. At the risk of this sharing, a glow (Zevs) blossoms, an insect in the palm of our hand (Wojnarowicz) who always believing he was alone quivers before his loyal servant. They care. What’s up doc? Who cares?
