Project: Constant_V


Opening: Thursday 23 September 2021 at 18:00

LATOS, SLATO, OTLAS and TALOS are among the names from which a group of researchers (Ayoh Kré, Lionel Maes, Deborah Levy & Antoine Wang) operate. What they have in common is that their privileged fields of study are made up of a sediment of practices and discourses from which proliferate a large number of images, objects and documents.

The methodology of the researchers is consistent throughout their work. First of all, they collect documents that condense the thickness and preserve the complexity of the relationships between beings and the things that make them. They then encode these documents in a relational database. Eventually, they subject these documents to more or less extensive transformations and thus manufacture new documents. Finally, they translate these documents from the database to exhibition spaces.

With TALKING NETWORK, the collective reinvents the computer device they used in their investigations, in particular for the exhibition "What does this have to do with everything else?" which took place at iMAL between February and March 2021. In the window of Constant, this device is turned in on itself this time. It implements its own network functioning (exchanges, negotiations, decision-making...) and the productions of thoughts that make its existence possible.
