Curatorial & Research Residency | 01 Nov to 30 Nov 2023
Yvon LANGUÉ’s interests lie in the role of text in shaping discursive and performative spaces – affecting the meaning of art, the function and social responsibility of institutions, and the social position and status of the artist within wider contexts.
While in residence, Yvon will develop a theoretical framework that functions in the intersections of conceptualism and curatorial practice. With a focus on Non-Western systems of signification – through marginal philosophies; hybrid spaces; outskirts-of-the-world systems and left-behind-by-modernity perspectives – Yvon hopes to widen notions of artistic and curatorial conceptualism to craft a path towards common knowledge that encompasses these heterodoxic concepts.
