Group exhibition catalogue exploring the theme of space from several angles (the public space from the viewpoint of legislation, individual liberty, social linkage, architecture and city- or town-planning; the exhibition space).
The catalogue devoted to the exhibition 1:1 x temps, quantites, proportions et fuites ushers in a series of publications about group shows held in the FRAC Bourgogne exhibition venue in Dijon--shows bringing together works from its collection and productions made specifically for the venue. It includes a series of interviews with the artists involved, conducted by art critics and exhibition curators, and an interview with Eva Gonzalez-Sancho, director of the FRAC Bourgogne.
1:1 x temps, quantites, proportions et fuite is a “programme“ exhibition dealing with the artistic orientations of the FRAC Bourgogne, as they were defined by Eva Gonzalez-Sancho when she took up her post in 2003. These orientations focus essentially on the exploration of the theme of space from several angles: the public space from the viewpoint of legislation, individual liberty, social linkage, architecture and city- or town-planning; and the issue of the exhibition space and its different parameters—production, time-frame, reception and social practice—for which this group show puts forward an approach.
The interview between Eva Gonzalez-Sancho and Frederic Oyharcabal covers the different aspects of the exhibition and the working processes, both applied and called upon to be developed in future projects. It sketches the outlines of an exhibition and acquisitions policy which goes “beyond events”, based on an on-going accompaniment and follow-up of the artists' work in relation to an editorial and publications policy marked by the temporal hindsight required by any production of writings about exhibitions.
The interviews with the artists do not focus solely on the works on view. The reader is invited to make his/her way inside the catalogue, and undertake constant to-ings and fro-ings between the different interviews and conversations, in order to see the goal of this publication gradually taking shape—a publication which strives not to “confine” the approach adopted by each artist within an idea, or theme.
