Why
take advantage (of it)...!

In the half-light of the "Nocturne" exhibition, conceived for this 5th edition of the FARaway festival, insects twirl around fallen trees, while a larger-than-life skeleton confides with a certain emotion about the small pleasures that life offers, if only we pay attention: a morning fog, the infinity of the sky, a beating heart, birdsong... An ode to life proclaimed by Death surrounded by uprooted trees. It is on this macabre scene, between day and night, that the artist invites the public to enter, inviting them to reflect on their own condition.

In artist Özgür Kar's animated videos, bodies and skeletons contort themselves within the narrow confines of human-sized flat screens. Sharing their existential questions with each other and with the audience, humming song lyrics or muttering slogans, these characters appear as magnifying mirrors of our realities. Their solitude, doubts and anxieties portray a collective distress that is struggling to find a way out.

"Let's Agree to Agree With Me"
Echoing this exhibition, the FRAC is also presenting a work by Özgür Kar that will enter its collection in 2020, "Let's Agree to Agree With Me" (2019), on view throughout the festival at La Comédie - CDN de Reims. "Let's Agree to Agree With Me" (is an animated video in which two characters confront each other in the restricted, constrained setting of a television screen, whose format evokes that of our cell phones. Repeating in turn "Let's agree to agree with me", this tableau vivant stages an impossible dialogue that repeats itself ad infinitum.
