Camille Henrot
Jewels from the Personal Collection of Princess Salimah Aga Khan

September 7th to 22nd 2012
Opening on September 7th, from 6 to 9 p.m.

Like herbarium sheets, the 135 plates featured in Camille Henrot's piece Jewels from the Personal Collection of Princess Salimah Aga Khan present various botanical specimens — plants and flowers — gathered by the artist from the private flower-beds decorating building entrances on the Upper East Side, New York City's wealthiest neighbourhood. Roland Barthes argues that flowers symbolise all things useless and luxurious, yet the purpose of those planted in these ornamental urban sites is to construct a border and figure — in the etymological sense of the word — the image of "paradise on earth". A "paradise for the living", echoing the paradayadâm, an Old Persian term meaning "beyond the wall" and which, when associated with the word djivadi, refers to that which is "lively, living, belonging to the time of life".

JUNE 2012

all the s o m e t h i n g i n b e t w e e n (transitory)

From June 15th to July 28th 2012
Opening on June 15th from 6pm to 10pm

The quest for structure and formal organisation that characterises Adrian Dan's approach is paradoxically opposed to any notion of hierarchy. He disrupts our habits and reflexes by imbricating and placing on the same level real, virtual, public and private spaces, artworks and construction materials, personal productions and pieces "borrowed" from other people, figuration and abstraction, images and objects, transparency and opacity, depth and flatness... Over classification and value systems, the artist thus favours a system of correspondences, dialogues and oppositions. He challenges the notion of functionality and demonstrates the inoperativeness of the myth of photographic transparency in the age of new technologies. The issue of perspective pervades — obsessively — the entire series of works presented at Rosascape.


MAY 2012

This is not a book
Katinka Bock, Dora García, Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, Fabien Giraud, Benoît Maire

From May 28th to June 8th 2012
Opening reception on May 30th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., in presence of some of the artists.

This is not a book showcases the entire collection of books published and produced by Rosascape since its establishment in 2009. The very title of the exhibition suggests an understanding of the book as a space for the creation and exhibition of a work in its own right — as a total (and infinite) redefinition of the very nature of the book. The book — the printed object — is thus conceived as an exhibition apparatus in itself, through which the works presented here create their own installation, consultation, spatial and temporal modalities. Each of the works opens up a vast realm of visual, plastic, theoretical, literary and poetic experience; with diverse materials like so many possible points of entry for delving into the different worlds of the various artists. The non-standard formats and the alternative ways in which the works can be activated and exhibited inscribe these printed objects at the cross-roads of the various artistic forms ordinarily explored by the artists (performance, conferences, installations, visual and plastic arrangements, writings, publications, etc.). As an invitation to reflect on the printed object, the exhibition could have been given the alternative title: Manifestos for a non-book — thus favouring — over the idea of the book— the idea of a space in flux, a laboratory for forms and ideas.

Performance by Remy HEritier
Facing the sculpture

Wednesday May 23rd 2012 at 7.30 pm at Rosascape

Free entrance, but places are limited so advanced booking is essential:
This performance will take place as part of Raymond Gervais's exhibition which will run at Rosascape until May 25th 2012.

Facing the sculpture
is a variable performance piece that stages its permeability to another work of art also present in the performance space. Its content and its poetic quality are the fruit of this encounter. How do two discrete works inform one another? How do they mutually document one another? Can one attain a better perspective/understanding of A by observing B, and vice versa?


APRIL 2012


From April 11th to May 25th 2012
Opening on April 11th from 6pm to 10pm

Performance by Frédéric Fisbach on April 11th at 7:30pm
Performance by Sylvain Chauveau on May 9th at 7:30pm
Performance by Remy Héritier on May 23rd at 7:30pm

Encounter with Raymond Gervais, Franck Leibovici and Jacinto Lageira, April 18th at 7:30pm

Written like a score, the installation places Debussy and Beckett in dialogue, re-staging them towards the end of their creative process, at the point when they were respectively asking themselves how they should finish, wondering about the possible failure of their production, and therefore wondering "how" and "what to do" — because finishing still entails doing something.

Gervais has been creating installations and performances in the visual arts field since 1973. A major artist on the Canadian art scene, Raymond Gervais's project inscribes itself within the main trends in contemporary art and current artistic production through its ties with conceptual and performance art and the exploration of sound.

Hands-on art workshop for children (age group 6 to 10 years), with Raymond Gervais and Hélène Duplantier.

Room, Freedom

A proposition by Simone Frangi

Friday April 6th: Roman Schmidt at 6 pm and Jean Clam at 7.30 pm
Saturday April 7th: Emmanuel Alloa at 4.30 pm and Simone Frangi at 6 pm
Free entrance. Booking required:

The Room, Freedom project investigates private and intimate space as both a site of cultural, political and social practice and a displacement territory for the reception of artistic and theoretical forms.
The programme will take shape as a series of apartment-based seminars, with various guest speakers. The seminars will attempt to approach private space 'otherwise', as a truly critical counter-site, like the "localised utopias" that Foucault discussed — i.e., spaces outside the norm, occupied by singular experiences. However, these experiences are in no way cut off from wider society, and can ultimately provide a way of establishing active connections between private and public space, and of exploring the kinds of norms structuring public space in order to consider them 'otherwise'.


MARCH 2012

Hands-on art workshop for children (age group 6 to 10 years)
Getting closer to Ulla von Brandenburg's Nonexistent Knight

Saturday March 24th 2012 from 10 am to 12.30 pm.
Advance booking is essential as places are limited to 12.
Please write to by March 22nd to book your place / 15 €

In this workshop — facilitated by Hélène Duplantier and based on series of exchanges with Ulla von Brandenburg — we will be exploring the various mirror effects at work in the show currently running at Rosascape. Creating silhouettes, and silhouette play... images echoing one another through a positive-negative effect... exploring the colours and motifs particular to Ulla von Brandenburg's world (the deck of cards, the walking-stick, the ribbon, the tie, the mirror, the curtain, the mask, etc. )...: so many avenues for creating your own private world.

The Nonexistent Knight

February 15th to March 31st 2012
Opening on Wednesday, February 15th from 6pm to 10pm

Observe and dive into a world not only represented from the perspective of the real, but which one can also perceive through a play of specular duplication. Ulla von Brandenburg's works often move between such liminal spaces of the real — the spectral images in her drawings, her installations which plunge us into another world, and the highly dramatised mises-en-scène in her films. For her exhibition at Rosascape, Ulla von Brandenburg gives particular attention to the visual artifice of image duplication, of the meeting and confrontation of the real and its projection. Playing on the particular characteristics of the exhibition space — i.e., a private, domestic, intimate space, with a classical architectural style — the artist presents a series of new works here (videos, installations, drawings).



Tomorrow's words

From December 9th to February 3rd 2012
Opening on December 9th from 4 pm to 11 pm
Performance by Christian Jendreiko at 7.30 pm

Katinka Bock frequently presents memories as impressions in the form of rubbings, foldings or even as a puddle of water on the floor of an exhibition. As relics, her works reveal the temporality of the process itself and are akin to contemporary witnesses to a kind of stasis, or perhaps, the internalisation of actions. The visitor to the exhibition Les mots de demain (Tomorrow's words) encounters a host of traces of this sort, which is not unlike wading through sedimentary deposits.

Du Mort Qui Saisit Le Vif (la maison du dehors)

From November 28th to December 3rd 2011.
Opening on November 28th from 4pm to 11pm.

More informations about the discussions here.

In his solo exhibition at Rosascape, Fabien Giraud shows several pieces for the first time which he brings together under the heading Du Mort Qui Saisit le Vif (la maison du dehors). Under this generic and programmatic title, the works shown at Rosascape are part of a long-term project that is conceived as a kind of technological saga and which might be summed up as follows: technology is not the preserve of man. There is no distinction between man's technological production and the more general production of nature at work.


On art without aesthetic

Discussions held on the occasion of Fabien Giraud's exhibition at Rosascape :
Discussion between Quentin Meillassoux and Fabien Giraud on November 29 at 7pm.
Discussion between Ida Soulard, Sam Basu and Tom Trevatt on December 1st at 7pm.

Booking :

The matter of contradiction is a speculative proposition towards a future art theory. The matter of contradiction a symposium, aims to account for recent philosophical movements in post-continental thought and site them in relation to contemporary art practices.


The aesthetics of differends

A talk with Benoît Maire, Corinne Enaudeau and Bruno Bosteels
November 11th at 7:30 pm

The Aesthetics of Differends (a project started in 2008) is an artist's book which documents Benoît Maire's ongoing research on the "differend", a concept he borrows from philosopher Jean-François Lyotard. The book is both an artwork in itself and a philosophical and artistic exploration of the essential questions of postmodernity and the meaning of the postconceptual work of art. The first installment of texts and images was proposed in January 2011, a series of printed sections articulated around a first sequence entitled "Ontology of the There is".
