Demain, Stabilisation (exhibition)
Solo exhibition at Galeria Francisco Fino, Lisbon
11.11.2017 – 11.01.2018
Adrien Missika's Demain, Stabilisation presents a body of work that draws on the artist's continuous reflections on ecology, metabolism and our relationship with the environment. The exhibition includes a series of sculptural works that operate as narrative structures, combining diverse artistic strategies that explore humour within conceptual art perimeters, the subtlety of existential poetics through diagrammatic sculptures of light and a performative revision of archival practices as an open form. The very promise of the title, Demain, Stabilisation (engl. Tomorrow, Stabilisation), announces a state of deferred accomplishment, implicating the present as an entropic zone where homeostasis is possible, yet always postponed, evoking the denialist responses to the current climate crisis.
On the occasion of this exhibition, an essay was written by Margarida Mendes.
