The exhibition project hardly transforms the TAG the Gallery space into a meeting place between the material and immaterial dimensions. In a time of increasing multiplication, acceleration and excess, the artists gathered here dedicate themselves to subtraction, omission and evocation exercises. These are exercises that arise from artistic sensibilities sustained in a refined conceptual rigor, but also in an express informality associated with experimentation - with matter, with emptiness, with sound and with language.
