Line of Flight - by Céline Condorelli

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[...] The project engages with movements that affect time and space, which is why the series is ordered into movements, as in a piece of music; things move, but also people, goods, capital. [...] (1)

 

[...] Often the narratives that sit alongside images that are being circulated, the subtexts that make them readable, are distorted or even factually wrong. I wouldn’t designate my practice as being journalistic in any way, but I place a lot of importance in uncovering and considering existing conditions, on social, spatial, political and historical levels, and I subscribe to John Latham’s maxim ‘context is half the work’. Our understanding of context includes distortions and fictional premise seriously. [...] (2)

 

[...] In some way, as an artist, I am implicated in forging documents, devising utopias, and constructing imaginary schemes about the future, and in this way I actively participate in the production of the real. In my work, countless real stories and real situations are used that are far more unbelievable version of real events, than a narrative, a construct, enabling a different understanding of history and the re-imagination of possible futures. [...] (3)
