Les filles du calvaire gallery is pleased to announce the new exhibition “Désidération”, by SMITH (Cellule Cosmiel x DIPLOMATES x Akira Rabelais) which will be held at the gallery from 26 October to 23 November 2019 (opening on Saturday 26 October from 3pm to 10pm).
Photographer, filmmaker and visual artist, SMITH explores the thought and practice of transition, mutation, hybridisation and in-between periods in his artistic and theoretical work. Transition of gender and state, plasticity, atomic and biotechnological metamorphoses, dream work, cosmic strolls and transmutations have punctuated his work and research for the past ten years. Conceived, thought and imagined through his group Cellule Cosmiel, and with Studio DIPLOMATES, his new project Desideration composes the possibility of another history, another fate for the human species, at the border of reality and fiction, art, philosophy and science. This long-term project’s prologue will be presented at Galerie les Filles du Calvaire in fall 2019.
Four evenings, entitled “mues”, will punctuate the exhibition:
Saturday, October 26th – 8pm – Opening and introduction to the phenomena of desire
Thursday, November 14 – 7:30 pm – around endocosmology
Friday, November 15 – 7:30 pm – special evening with Paul B. Preciado
Saturday, November 23rd – 8pm – Closing of the exhibition and cosmic implantation
