Launch of a new curatorial residency at Espace 3353
The collective as slow as possible will be taking over Espace 3353 from November 2023 to March 2025, as part of a curatorial residency entitled Making Place, Making Kin.
To launch this cycle of exhibitions, their first event, Turnaround, invites us to delve into the work of Iranian filmmaker Saleh Kashefi through his two short films, She Who Wasn’t Tamed and And How Miserable is the Home of Evil. Since the age of 12, he has been making his first films, adopting a self-taught approach and carrying out all the tasks required to create his works. His audacious work offers a unique perspective on contemporary youth culture through films with minimal or no budget.
The screenings will be followed by a Soupe au Pistou (V) prepared by artist Clara Roumégoux, who is interested in modes of production and communication in concepts such as sleep, food or design, in their productivist use. Through drawing, sculpture and video, her strategies of appropriation start with collages of popular and historical images, and take the form of lyrical and cynical narratives about the way the neoliberal era generate concepts of well-being, timeless and work.
