An Exhibition Without Texts
Maison d’Art Bernard Anthonioz, Nogent-sur-Marne
from 21 March 2013
until 19 May 2013

Conceived as part of the "Suite for Exhibition(s) and Publication(s)", "An Exhibition Without Texts" presented by Mathieu Copeland at the Maison d’Art Bernard Anthonioz (Nogent‑sur-Marne). Mathieu Copeland’s second movement for the Satellite program is a direct, simultaneous echo of the first movement presented at the Jeu de Paume.

This “Exhibition Without Texts” offers a counterpoint to the spoken word and considers the moment when the text serves as image, when writing (in the widest sense of the term) vanishes in favor of abstraction and the disappearance of meaning. Exploring the superimposition and accumulation, deletion and tearing, re-painting and obstruction, obliteration and disfigurement of, and in, the work, this exhibition is thus conceived around an explicit (and stated) desire to delete all text and all images. This approach to the most formal aspect of the exhibition emphasizes the existence of the work through our own representation of it and the words that we communicate.

With Vito Acconci, Francis Baudevin, Stefan Brüggemann, Delphine Coindet, Gilles Furtwängler, Matt Golden, Idris Khan, Alison Knowles, Loreto Martínez Troncoso, Raffaella della Olga, Francesco Pedraglio, Giandomenico Tonatiuh Pellizzi, Claude Rutault, Aki Sasamoto, Benjamin Seror, Cally Spooner, Amikam Toren, Jacques Villeglé, Gil Joseph Wolman… Et pour la publication, franck leibovici.
