Exhibition "On the other side of the sea" by Clemon Bedel in the U10 gallery

June 21, 2021 | Ivana Nedeljković

On Thursday, June 17, at 7 pm, in the U10 gallery, the exhibition On the Other Side of the Sea by the French artist Clemon Bedel will be opened. The exhibition will be open until July 3.

"What is painting, if it is not a certain existence in the world (in Heidegger's sense) on a piece of canvas?" This existence in the world, this ontological connection with the temporality and transcendence of Clemon Bedel, allows the viewer to wander freely through the image or images, to perceive separate fragments of the biosphere and the remains of infrastructures in which human presence and logic exist only as phantom silhouettes. No dominant object will attract his attention, nor a great narrative that will conceptually hold him.

The other side of the sea is neither post-consumerist nor post-apocalyptic. It is the reconciling effect of living with the trouble that was initially caused by the force of the fall of civilization, rather than by the force of nature. In this abolition of world perspectives concerning dramatic flowering, Bedel finds a new perspective. He does this by articulating otherwise traumatic interweaving of planes that are more antagonistic than complementary. Here they show vitality and endurance, not entropy. ”from the text by Maja Ćirić
