Pétrel | Roumagnac (duo)
from June 2nd 2016 to June 11th 2016
Actions in the Gallery Space

Reactivation of Vincent Roumagnac’s Réserves #2

Stranded and doubtful, Réserves #2 is a piece that is either late and as yet unpacked or already taken down and repacked. During the exhibition, the curator regularly and rather fitfully moves the work from one room to another in the exhibition. Artist Roumagnac will appear on behalf of the duo in the last week of the exhibition to act upon the work.

Pétrel | Roumagnac (duo)
June 11th 2016
Talk - Closing

OPTICA, a centre for contemporary art invites you to take part in a open discussion between curator Claire Moeder and the artist duo made up of Aurélie Pétrel and Vincent Roumagnac. The artists will exchange ideas on their work together since 2012 and on the specific productions Répétitions (La Réserve) #2 and Réserves #2, a piece that follows a “reactivation protocol” that is transformed, manipulated, and reactivated during the time of the exhibition, first by the curator and then by the artist Roumagnac.
