About the Artists

1981 , France

 

"Speculating from our world, this is what the stories of SF (eco) feminist do, reconnecting us to our experiences, our desires, our values, our needs, our imaginations, responding in this way to the «questioning situation par excellence «today is» the very possibility of a future" - Emilie Hache

"Ecosystem autonomous, metasexual form, exocentrism: Benjamin Blaquart combines the materials and technologies of engineering and organic to hybride the human, the plant, the machine, the real and the virtual.Hiswholeapproachisan invitation to transform (or hack, he would say) the assumptions about identity, technology, the living and the inanimate.

Fueled by speculative fictions and theories ranging from Paul B. Preciado to Samuel R. Delany, BB’s installations create areas of interaction between living and technological materials, they are traversed by tubes reminiscent of arterial networks, in which the fluids irrigating this hybrid set. In the thorny lair of its ecosystems, «This space between you and me» and «Us and Them», whereeachelementjustifiesitspresence according to its utility to the other, BB generates possible empathic relationships, the work appearing in this respect symptomatic of the role that the human being chooses to occupy with this fragile mechanics: if he wishes to ensure the survival of the latter, he will have to take care of it; if he abandons it, the system will inevitably die.

In B.B the speculative theories are positive in that they envisage the future not in a regression, but in an alternative and critical dynamic of capitalistfascinationforperpetual access to expansion and the new. It is no longer a question of taking a step back, but a step aside:toimaginecollectivelythe terms of a withdrawal from the race without departing from what human intelligence can provide as an emancipatory solution of the grip of a society locked by the economic stakes"
