Using archival documents, the work re-enacts the series of electrical impulses that triggered, on October 11, 1994, the explosive charges of the complete destruction of the 10 Democracy Towers in the Minguettes district of Vénissieux.
Second volume of a trilogy inaugurated in 2008 by the work Some Belsunce Apartments, Various Small Sparks continues the artist’s artificial rereading of the first three famous works by Ed. Ruscha.
For Anne-Valérie Gasc, making a work is a matter of fulgurance—that of an event during which, for a few seconds at a time, reality escapes us and our entire relationship with the world is challenged. His work follows this utopian quest: to propose and share a moment of unseizure of the real. His pieces are thought as oxymorons where, notably, what is made visible is, simultaneously, delivered as unbearable to the eye. It is in this fundamental contradiction that the question of the advent of a work of art arises for her.
The artist’s book, Various Small Sparks, was published with the support of the Conseil Général des Bouches-du-Rhône.
