"WITHOUT" 14th DEC. 07 ~ 19th JAN. 08. CURATED BY ADAM CARR.
OLIVIER BABIN, PIERRE BISMUTH, RYAN GANDER, DAN REES, YANN SÉRANDOUR, RON TERADA.
Yvon Lambert, Paris, is pleased to announce the exhibition Without, curated by Adam Carr, that will take place at Sidewalk, a new space situated on the lower and ground floors of the gallery.
This exhibition, without any conventional reason or theme that commonly brings works together, reactively sets out to devise a partial dialogue with the exhibition occupying the main space of the gallery, which will open and close concurrently. It takes as its starting point the artist Jonathan Monk, yet this show, among other aspects, will be about the artist but will be without the artist.
The beginnings of Monk’s work – and its primary point of investigation – stems, in essence, from other artist’s ends. Without presents artworks by six international artists made between 2000 and 2007 – but not produced specifically for this exhibition – which continue this process of production, yet more significantly for the exhibition, have used Monk’s work, or himself – via the lens of each artist’s practice – in various ways, and in different circumstances directly.
