Melancholy is not enough…

Pavilion Unicredit

Bd. Nicolae Titulescu nr. 1 (Piata Victoriei), Bucharest, Romania

15 December, 2011 - 19 February, 2012
OPENING: Thursday, December 15, 2011, 19.00

Curator: Niels Van Tomme

Participants: Lotte Van den Audenaeren (BE), Anne-James Chaton (FR), Andrea Galvani (IT), Jo Mitchell (UK), Matthias Wermke & Mischa Leinkauf (DE)

"A sorrowful pleasure", according to Bulgarian-French theorist Julia Kristeva, melancholy is assumed to exclude any action. Besieged by one's grievous state, one can't react with or against this all-pervasive affective condition. Turning away from deliberately finding pleasure in overpowering sentiments and environments, as the melancholic subject is expected to in most conceptualizations of her state, the artists in this exhibition subvert the looming of melancholia into delight, relentlessly relating the physical places they navigate to the mental states they desire to appropriate.

Publication: "Melancholy is not enough…" poster with text by Niels Van Tomme

Exhibition supported by PAVILION - journal for politics and culture.
