Fredi Fischli, Niels Olsen, Theater Objects, gta Verlag, 2015

Variously designed stages form the nexus between art and architecture in the exhibition Theater Objects: A Stage for Architecture and Art. They provide theatrical tableaux in which internationally renowned artists and architects present them­ selves in the field of interplay between the two disciplines. Josep Lluís Mateo and Christian Kerez, for example, use the stages to reveal their sources of inspiration, whether books or films, which in turn reflects the format of this exhibition of architecture. The book Theater Objects takes up these ideas and develops them in a large number of contributions.

Thomas Boutoux, Benjamin Thorel, Mélanie Matranga, Les presses du réel, Palais de Tokyo, 2015

Conceived as an emotional structure, “反复,” Mélanie Matranga's exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo is intentionally equivocal. Its very title—in Mandarin—puts us in an awkward situation, just as when we need to ask a stranger our way in an unknown city, or when we have to admit our inability to understand a message before being even able to start a conversation. Mélanie Matranga combines in her exhibition signs that reflect upon interiority with elements linked to social attitudes and habits. We find ourselves amid familiar objects and generic forms, in situations where self-expression, paradoxically, is possible only once identity is lost. They are places to be alone with others.
