ALLURES, Frac Centre, Orléans, 9.10.2015-21.02.2016
Allures (Aspects) proposes to explore a selection of works from the Frac Centre-Val de Loire Collection, among which some recent acquisitions (Passi, Superstudio, Cantafora), as well as works previously unseen or rarely shown at Turbulences (Niedermayr, Pettena, EZCT, Labdora, Andrault & Parat), the respective singularities of which help us perceive how they might express the notion of urban and architectural ‘presence’.
Allures opens up to the field of visionary thought on unprecedented, significant, and liberated forms, through a selection of works that falls within the ‘implementation’ of striking figures of a promising discontinuity (Archizoom Associati, UFO, Superstudio). Allures also opens up to the perception of a state that is both rediscovered and renewed, infused with history and replayed memories (Libeskind), manipulated (Casebere, Pettena) or remotivated (Ian+) reality.
Drafts, sketches, grids, histograms, typologies, plans, blueprints, templates, models, photographs or moving images… Whether they represent the reality of the hand’s gesture or the expression of a digital tool, the point is to envision these works in their seminal state of frailty which shapes its forces and densities. The presence of invited contemporary artists and architects (Farah Atassi, Eva Le Roi, Studio sNCDA, Office KGDVS, Vincent Lamouroux, Hayoun Kwon) blends in with exhibits from the Collection. Symmetries come into play, breaking through any containment attempts, questioning our methods of organising and defining knowledge, (re)cognition, and perception of what is tangible.

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I came across this during my search for something concerning this.
