Cécile B. Evans
AMOS' WORLD: Episode One

Location:
mumok

In her works, American–Belgian artist Cécile B. Evans explores the significance and role of emotions in contemporary society, and looks at the increasing influence of new technologies on our feelings and actions. For her solo exhibition at mumok she will develop an architectural setting in which her video AMOS’ WORLD is presented. AMOS’ WORLD is a three-part television series that takes place in a socially advanced housing estate. The key characters are the architect Amos and the inhabitants of the estate he built. Just like the tenants, Amos, a mix between Saint-Exupéry’s Little Prince and a famous brutalist architect, is part of the larger infrastructure of his building. At time passes, the inhabitants weaken Amos’s comfortable position. They simply refuse to behave in accordance with his vision of the perfect coexistence of an individual and a communal spirit in the age of capitalism. The network transpires to be full of holes. Structures of power are eroded, and a negative dynamic sets in. This leads to the question as to the influence of the network age on the conflict between rights of the individual and mechanisms of collective control.

Cécile B. Evans (*1983) is an American-Belgian artist living and working in London. Recent selected solo exhibitions include Galerie Emanuel Layr, Vienna (AT), Tate Liverpool (UK), Kunsthalle Aarhus (DK), M Museum Leuven (BE), and the De Hallen Haarlem (NL). Her work will be included amongst others in the 7th International Moscow Biennale (RU), the 4th Ural Industrial Biennal (RU), Galerie Kamel Mennour (FR), and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Copenhagen (DK). It was included among others in the 9th Berlin Biennale (DE), the 20th Sydney Biennale (AUS), Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona (ES), and the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (FR). Public collections include The Museum of Modern Art, New York (US), The Rubell Family Collection, Miami (US), the Whitney Museum of American Art (US), the De Haallen (NL), the Castello di Rivoli, Turin (IT), the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Copenhagen (DK) and the FRAC Auvergne (FR).
