June 29th-July 19th, L.A. Pai Gallery is pleased to host Futur Composé by Anne-Sophie Vallée, Solo Exhibition by the winner of the 2016 annual National Jewellery Student Competition. Vernissage June 29th 5-7 pm.
Futur composé intends to draw connections between the fields of language, architecture and craft theory to address the body-in-space experience in which matter and the self intersect. In this work, the body in motion is the premise for material and object activation. I explore the concept of ‘material vitalism’ as the driving force to expose the heterogenous and homogenous tendencies of the composite whole, bringing together surface and depth.
Since jewellery suggests direct interaction with the human body, it allows for investigation of scale, mass, gravity and movement, all of which are inseparable from time. Futur composé asks the audience to question their temporal relationship with the objects in which they are in spatio-historical contact.
Further, I want to propose that form and matter can be more effective than language at expressing abstract ideas, since form itself is idea.
Futur composé argues against the position that the unexplained is nonsensical.
