A SPACE IS A SPACE IS A SPACE is a performative and narrative exhibition conceived by three curators – Karima Boudou, Céline Poulin, Agnès Violeau – to probe notions of social context, public space and performance as possible discursive platforms. The exhibition orchestrates a polyphony of perspectives relating to staged realities: the physical space of the DAZ, the urban environment on the banks of the river Spree, the Internet – with the website Mind The Gap – and editorial practice as sites of public exchange. The exhibition invites visitors to compose or deconstruct their own propositions within these spaces through documents or objects that are then activated within or beyond the site.
6.30 p.m. – Guided tour by curator Céline Poulin
7 p.m. – As a closing event, curator Agnès Violeau invited Jason Dodge for a performed reading, relating to the exhibit and his invitation in the Magazine JBCQVF.
Dodge’s practice combines rational elements of domestic or everyday spaces, along with the poetics of past narratives. Rejoining concept and affect, the personal and the universal, his work is often materialized as small passive objects and their strong presence in space. With conceptual or formalist legacies, they are yet open to interpretation such as poems or scores. His work can even display a sense a nostalgia, the objects and their arrangement then echoing the solitude of mankind as a fragile allegory of its condition.
