Steven Pippin: Mamiya 330 twin lens reflex shot with .25 calibre (self portrait) (2010)

“Pippin is not interested in employing a photographic process to arrive at a specific visual result; rather, the process itself determines the result to a great degree.”

Michel de Broin: Black Whole Conference (2006)

72 chairs, 400cm in diameter

The installation consists of a large sphere composed of an assemblage of chairs. The legs are attached to one another, bringing the chairs together. In this spherical conference room there is no central position, all the chairs float in solidarity with each other. They operate as an immune system – protecting themselves by blocking and kicking out their surroundings. As a massive object in the gallery space, the sphere acts as a centre of gravity around which the rest orbits. The reorganization of matter derives from a ‘big bang’ where the ancient order of the conference room has blown out and reconfigured into a ‘utopic’ geometrical endosystem.

Thomas Hirschhorn – Equality Float

La Douane / Galerie Chantal Crousel is pleased to announce the exhibition of Thomas Hirschhorn, “Equality Float”.

The eponymous work represents a carnival float measuring 21 metres long by 6 meters wide. Produced for and presented at MACRO, Vigo in 2008, the work is exhibited here for the first time in France. “Equality Float” is an allegory of the community, highlighting both its ills and their remedies; a reflection on the notions of equality / inequality. It is a theme that the artist explores through the interaction of opposites, of political and philosophical essays (Spinoza, Deleuze, Bataille, Gramsci).

The work is paired with a text of the German philosopher Marcus Steinweg, with whom Thomas Hirschhorn has worked during the past ten years, specially commissioned to be included in the work.

During the exhibition, a comprehensive library composed of the bibliography of the work, preparatory drawings and other methodological notes is available for consultation to the visitors.

Thomas Hirschhorn is representing Switzerland at the 54th Venice Biennale.
