To jump is to pass from one place to another, from one subjectivity to another, from an object to its possible use (or not).

JUMP, a spatial presentation-installation devised by the artist Jean-Pascal Flavien, aims to connect the two sides of a single entity—the galleries of the art center and its digital space, offering both of them a reciprocal yet uncertain translation. There are as many kinds of jumps as there are combinations of possible elements.

The works of the featured artists invited to populate Flavien’s installation play on the ambiguity of their status, be they objects of connection or conflict, personal or utilitarian artifacts, ambivalent forms, or passages between different realities. JUMP experiments with the way pieces of art function, work in the day-to-day world, seek to redefine traditional categories and uses, and radically or surreptitiously sow confusion in “common sense.” Mutating throughout its run, JUMP reflects the use of the space while putting the shifting identity of the venue in perspective.

As wrote it Jean-Pascal Flavien in the statement which produced the spatial installation: “The important is not the design of each space in itself, but is the transition from one space to the other space. / These passages (jumps) are translations, transfers, travels. / The passages are both semantic and formal. In this case, it is sometimes the same thing. / There are always whether formal or semantic losses in this passage (lost information). / Act: The more the transfer or translation is poor (more loss of information), the more the passage is sensitive, and the new space appears as it is.”

–Céline Poulin, director of CAC Brétigny
