“Our marketing needs to keep up with shifting consumer profiles.” “They lost their ways in the shifting sands of the Sahara.” Approximately every 400 million years the tectonic plates gather to create a super-continent (at least 75% of the continental crust), known as the cycle of Wilson. Amasia, the next one, will occur in 250 million years. The previous exhibition by Louis-Philippe Scoufaras is still there. The wall is still standing. The seats have been split, slowly moved by 90 degrees and the sculpture by a rotation of 180. (In 2013 at Centre Georges Pompidou, Pierre Huyghe kept the scenography and the ruins from the previous show by Mike Kelley. Loved it.) Alterations are present. Violent or not. Sometimes invisible. But their significations have repercussions. A spear in the air has magnitude for all. Since a few years the Gen Zers are practicing a desired reality, without moving from their bed. It’s an immobile journey made of flashes. (It’s called shifting but it’s basically autohypnosis, which exists since the 19th century and was created by a French pharmacist.) In the exhibition you will find: A small house in a garden A compilation of methodologies An ongoing life An unfinished text A lot of different materials Some stripes and some images An exploration of modalities Reflections of time and space Two citations from the Cambridge Dictionary … In one of her last interview, Phyllida Barlow explained how her working process is not about results but contemplation and how it enables her to daydream and think.
