waking doubting rolling shining and musing

Academy of Fine Art in Vienna is announcing the 8th edition of its annual curatorial project. Precarious life and its physio-psychological cartography is the main theme of this exhibition.

Inspired by a close rereading of French Symbolist poet, Stephane Mallarme’s experimental oeuvre, the curatorial project reconsiders an exhibition (and its mental and physical space) as a d ynamic and open site of production of meaning and distribution of singular narratives that while remaining autonomous constitute a Constellation, Mallarmean unpredictably appearing spatial and semantic fusion which allures with a promise of order within seemingly superficial and unformed structure.

As such, this exhibition aims at both staging in a possibly objective way the condition of all departments of the Viennese Academy AD 2006 (a stud y of subjectivity caught at the time of writing) and simultaneously orchestrating a common theme (a reflection upon precarious life as framed by a reference to Mallarme as a thinker of the event-drama, according to Badiou, “from a bottom of a shipwreck” , on the edge of the void, between a deserted horizon and a stormy sea).

As a work in movement, a possible study of formation and a field of potentialities and becomings, this project revisits Mallarme’s spatial poem, Un Coup de dés jamais n’abolira le hazard (1895) within the network of parallel trajectories of chance and precision, innocence and expe rience, failure and urgency. An act of “dice thrown” and a figure of a faun improvising constitute a framework which embraces contradictions and sets up an operative rhythm for a collected art works in the space of Academy’s Mehrzwecksaal.

The exhibition presents altogether the work of over 30 students of all departments of Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, including studios of architecture and stage design, as well as featuring a special portrait of conservation & restoration department, “Refer – Relate – Memory”.
