La Kunsthalle Mulhouse presents Où sommes-nous (Where are we) with the artists Judith Albert (Switzerland), Dana Claxton (Canada), Nik Forrest (Canada), Katrin Freisager (Switzerland) and Capucine Vandebrouck (France). The exhibition explores the themes of the invisible, passages and memory.

Où sommes-nous encompasses 22 works presented through a scenography offering a multitude of approaches exploring fundamental issues associated with framing, narrative, still and moving images. Presented in Montreal in the fall of 2018 at OBORO, Où sommes-nous finds in Mulhouse its second iteration.

The practices of these five artists span performance, figurative and abstract imagery, tying the body to landscape. Brought together, their works articulate common preoccupations concerning perception and a desire to both disrupt and expand the popular imaginary by drawing from avant-garde, feminist and vernacular strategies.

Within the scope of this exhibition we witness a nod to alchemical processes and proto-photographic experimentation, a destabilizing examination of scale and of the body within built environments and landscapes, a traversing of psychic, social and colonial boundaries, and a resistance to normative structures among five established artists, each of whom open and disrupt conventions, bringing into question foundational assumptions over the line between reality and illusion.

A curatorial proposition from Chantal Molleur, Aaron Pollard and Sandrine Wymann

The exhibition is produced in partnership with OBORO, a Canadian artist center and White Frame, a Swiss nomadic association, both of which support the creation of visual and media arts.
