artists & participants
K.Acker : The Office is a work platform from, by and through the fictional universes of author Kathy Acker. American jewish writer, close from William Burroughs, she strongly influenced as much openly as in a more underground manner many artists and authors of her generation, and certainly many others much closer from us. The exhibition Ruling ‘n’ Freaking, occurency of K.Acker : The Office, is conceived as a protocol of evocation intended to invoke different « voices » of Acker, building parallel realities around them. The artworks of the show catalyse the effective character of nowadays appropriation protocols operating in the field of contemporary art. They are the sensitive incarnations of the artist's interest for the forms of autofiction and fantasizing as vectors of a political reconfiguration of the real by its representations, and update Acker's problematics to nowadays concerns.
