Seven weeks working in the Analix Forever Gallery. Mark says: “The Center for Improved Living is a one-stop shop for all your life-enhancement needs. It consists of several different ways to improve your life almost instantly.”
Etymology: Middle English sweigh, from sweyen
1 : the action or an instance of swaying or of being swayed : an oscillating, fluctuating, or sweeping motion
2 : an inclination or deflection caused by or as if by swaying
3 a : a controlling influence b : sovereign power c : the ability to exercise influence or authority
In English the word « sway » means something floating, balancing, shaking or unstable; at the same time the word refers to the notion of control, power and persuasion. These two almost contradictory meanings gave us the idea of elaborating a show that would include art pieces corresponding to one and/or the other of these definitions. The show presents ten artists from Belgium, Korea, France, Poland, United Kingdom, Russia and Switzerland. Several artistic techniques are presented: drawings, photographs, sculpture, installations and videos. The artworks presented in SWAY make us aware of the duality of visions that we can have on the world, on objects and on human sensations.
Artists: Sophie Combes, Alexandra David, Andrea Heller, Heather Jones, Elena Kovylina, Camille Laurelli, In-Young Moon, Joanna Malinowska, Anne-Julie Raccoursier et Andy Wauman.
