Quoting, borrowing and re-using images have always been a gateway to art history, but the appearance of film and photography has particularly encouraged those practices. The itineraries of these new images continue to obsessively hold our contemporaries’ attention. This exhibition offers insight into visual reactivations in the specific field of contemporary art. It will pay tribute to a generation of artist-scavengers who collect and awaken forgotten images borrowed from others. How do images haunt our individual memories and feed our collective imagination? How does re-using them allow us to think about the fragmentation and violence of bodies and identities? How can their multiplicity, profusion and abundance be played with? Since its inception, the “Where the Other Rests” project has been conceived and developed around dialogue and around encounters between an art historian and an artist as well as between the works in the exhibition space, for there is an other in every one of us.
