:mentalKLINIK . Rina Ralay-Ranaivo . Temandrota
A proposal by Joël Andrianomearisoa
Exposition from 27 February to 4 September 2021
Beyond all you are mine.
A joyful affirmation in a time where the future remains uncertain. The end seems far away! And what will tomorrow be?
A declaration of life at a time when we lack breath. How to breathe? With whom to breathe?
An assurance of strong friendship even when the world today seems helpless. Will we ever dance? A kiss?
A state of love when naive patriotism points its nose too much.
Three artists deliver themselves to affirm that we are still together, inspired and alive.
The breath of time belongs to us and our desires go beyond all horizons.
The first is a Malagasy force. Temandrota.
He manipulates the earth, he kneads the fire, he triturates our hearts to give new resonances.
In his immersive installation Kolondoy, he sketches new territories, new playgrounds to confront us with the questions of tomorrow and our deepest desires.
from the Bosphorus to the banks of the Ikopa,
the :mentalKLINIK blur the tracks of a game between materiality, luminosity and sentimentality.
Without geography except that of the emotion.
Between the idea of 2, 3 or more … The couple :mentalKLINIK invites us to question the idea of a new love and especially the one we carry on Antananarivo. Another love.
And the third,
Rina Ralay Ranaivo who shares his heart between Antananarivo, Berlin and elsewhere,
invokes in his piece Chapitre I, his fantasies, our ancestors and History along an imaginary river to cross.
Once again, crossing water, crossing time, crossing the other, crossing borders,
to find ourselves and to affirm that beyond everything you are mine.
To make the desire,
the desire to be in the world,
to slip into the caress of the wind,
and let yourself be carried away.
