Joëlle Tuerlinckx at Centre International d’Arte et du Paysage


"that explore the power of form to appear and disappear" apt to a current vogue - of which Tuerlinckx is a forebear - for the anxiety of stuff. The quantity of objecthood and Artwork and its risk, once again in the history of art, for disappearance. Art vanishing from the retinal dissolving into concept wasn't enough. Now there's risk, fear, of the unauthenticated object. Mass produced or intentional, do and does not matter. A gleeful anxiety of teetering art over the brink of art just being stuff as any other, art into piles indiscriminate and question what separates authentic from artifice and watch the distinction melt, its just stuff that's not stuff or so.
