Ola Vasiljeva: En Rachâchant: The Oceans Academy of Arts: University with Özlem Altin, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy, Ola Vasiljeva and Marianne Vierø
MIDDELBURG • Vleeshal • 13 September - 13 December 2015
Curated by Roos Gortzak, this exhibition borrows its title from the short film En Rachâchant by Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet, based on the children’s story Ah! Ernesto by Marguerite Duras. It takes a humorous look at de-hierarchising the educational process through the character of Ernesto, who insistently refuses to go to school because it teaches things he does not know.
In En Rachâchant, Vasiljeva strategically approaches negation and the refusal to learn. In a time when market logic dominates all fields of teaching and dictates that knowledge must be rentable in economic terms, this show mounts a playful assault on this ideology.
The exhibition takes the form of an anti-pedagogical stage, one populated by mixed-media works, sculptures and drawings that manipulate motifs related to the subject of disobedience as a course of learning.
