As part of Friction(s) festival organized by Château Rouge, and to mark the closing of the exhibition “Les Incessants” , the artist Yan Tomaszewski is offering an open workshop in which everyone takes part and performs. Mining a surrealist vein, he is calling the workshop “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”

“In June 1924, a working group made up of Czechoslovakian artists, writers, and politicians gathered in Prague to define the identity of their new nation. For a week they devoted themselves to exercises in divination that crystallized the Czechoslovakian spirit for years thereafter. Together we are going to summon the one and only motif towards which all of those exercises pointed: the mysterious motif of the quick brown fox jumping over the lazy dog.”

The Franco-Polish artist Yan Tomaszewski lives and works in Paris. He has had solo shows at Catapult (Antwerp, 2016), the Kronika Contemporary Art Center (Bytom, 2015), the Middelheim Museum (Antwerp, 2015), the Muzeum Sztuki (Lodz, 2014), the Asymetria Gallery (Warsaw, 2013), and Primo Piano (Paris, 2012). He has also taken part in the following group shows, Nouveau Festival (Pompidou Center, 2015), Le Salon des Testeurs, (Chalet Society, Paris, 2013), Manifesta 9, The Deep of the Modern (Genk, 2012), and Salon de Montrouge, (Montrouge, 2011).

LES INCESSANTS 12.05.2016 - 6:00 pm Opening
Booklaunch at ORAIBI + BECKBOOKS in Geneva.
As part of the current show, the book store ORAIBI + BECKBOOKS is hosting the launch of Headless
For this detective novel published under the name K.D., the writer John Barlow was hired as a ghostwriter by the artist duo Goldin + Senneby to investigate “Headless,” an offshore company registered in the Bahamas. During the investigation, the author finds himself involved in the decapitation of a Nassau policeman. Headless then becomes a frantic race through the world of high finance by an English writer in the hands of a secret society made up of the economic elite who will stop at nothing to preserve their power. Headless is inspired by the Acéphale review and secret society founded in 1936 by Georges Bataille, who was obsessed with human sacrifice at the time.
 
To launch Headless, Goldin + Senneby have invited Jan Blanc, Tiphanie Blanc, Allison Huetz and Céline Poulin to come and talk about confidence games, whether artistic or no, and the pleasures of fiction that catches up with reality. The discussion will revolve around a reading of several excerpts from the book.
