Jonathan Monk 'In Between Exhibitions'
Part #1 | 27 - 31 janvier 2013

Yvon Lambert est heureux de présenter le nouveau projet de Jonathan Monk 'In Between Exhibitions' qui se dévoilera sous une forme originale et inattendue : entre deux expositions, entre montage et démontage, l’artiste anglais interviendra dans les espaces de la galerie avec des oeuvres créées in situ, en corrélation - ou pas - avec les expositions précédentes ou à venir, afin d’explorer un nouveau rapport au concept d’exposition.

Son travail, basé sur l’idée de la réappropriation et de la facétie, permettra de crée un lien continu entre les différentes propositions et artistes de la galerie en se glissant dans les interstices spatio-temporels de ces moments de mutation.

Ce format, à la fois contraignant et audacieux, a été inauguré dès 1970 à la galerie Yvon Lambert, rue de l’Echaudé, avec trois interventions de Niele Toroni entre deux temps d’exposition. Cette fois-ci, Jonathan Monk investira par sept fois les lieux, permettant de construire in fine un projet ambitieux qui se concrétisera sous forme d’une publication numérique.

Un site internet www.jonathanmonkexhibition.com sera mis en place afin de suivre l’évolution de ce work in progress et être au plus près du processus de création.

Yvon Lambert Gallery is pleased to present an new project by Jonathan Monk 'In Between Exhibition'. This unexpected project consists in several installations at the gallery.New and old pieces will be displayed between two exhibitions, between installations and dismantling. These pieces will often relate to each other and to the exhibitions before or after.

His work is often based on re-appropriation or a kind of semantic displacement with humor. He is has been known to add a personal twist to artworks by other artists. In Between Exhibitions will allow a continuing link to several artists exhibited at the Yvon Lambert Gallery. The project developes this specific space between two exhibitions, it’s a field of many possibilities and interests for the artist and for the viewer - at a time when the space is generally closed it will be actively open.

This is not the first time the in-between moment has been employed. In 1970 when the Gallery was in rue de l’Echaudée, Niele Toroni exploited this constraint within the traditional gallery/exhibition system. Today, Jonathan Monk will intervene seven times on site. In the end, it will be a complete series, gathered as a whole under one original digitally published file.

A new website www.jonathanmonkexhibition.com will be on line in order to follow the evolution of this work in progress and then visitors can be involved within the creative process.
