Presentation

The MAC/VAL will be presenting Renaud Auguste- Dormeuil’s first solo exhibition in a French museum.
In parallel, the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard will also be presenting an exhibition of Auguste- Dormeuil’s work, in December. The MAC/VAL exhibition “INCLUDE ME OUT” is constructed around a simple, yet essential question: is it Time going through us, or are we going through Time? Although Time is calculable, it is, by essence, ineffable. How can we translate the experience of the elasticity of Time?
The exhibition unfolds like a initiatory trip, taking the visitor through the artist’s recent creations and key works. Upon entry, one is invited to abandon their certitudes and dwell in a zone of doubt, the territory of art. From darkness to the light and back again, the question of blindness is broached. What do we see? How do we see? How can we represent the unshowable?
Auguste-Dormeuil’s works mark steps in a circuit through territories of suspense, like so many tools for analysis. They are the plastic representations for reflection and the questioning of our relationship with reality. Paradoxically, Renaud Auguste-Dormeuil creates images of an absence of images, stills. Rooted in historical facts and urban legends, his works are so many indicators of and springboards for histories.
When asked about the title “INCLUDE ME OUT”, Renaud Auguste-Dormeuil explained, “In Jean-Luc Godard’s Mépris, when the the producer invites Fritz Lang to have a drink, Lang laconically replies, Include me out. With a sort of insolent elegance, Godard establishes all of the pardoxical complexity of Lang’s gesture. Beyond this, to me, “Include me out” is a powerful way of expressing a simple idea, something we have all experienced. It is not just because I live in a society that I must adhere to it; it is not because I watch television that I have to adhere to it... and so on and so one for so many other things...”

Exhibition organized in cooperation with the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard pour l’art contemporain.
