Caryl* Ivrisse-Crochemar, [creative renegades society] and Frederic Guilbaud, President of the Association Martiniquaise pour l’Art Contemporain (AMAC) are pleased to present Residences Informelles, a group exhibition with the following artists: Michel Blazy, Rafal Bujnowski, Alexandre Da Cunha, Tue Greenfort, Henrik Hakansson, Sophie von Hellermann, Noritoshi Hirakawa, Alicja Kwade, Aleksandra Mir, Michael Sailstorfer & Johannes Wohnseifer.

Since 1999, he has invited international renowed contemporary artists, with diverse artistic practices, to stay in Martinique. For him to invite the artists of various origins contributes, he said, to strengthen the knowledge of his native island and its culture through contemporary art. These artists have produced, while enjoying a pleasant stay on the island, many works that have been presented around the world with the unique label « Made in Martinique. » The exhibition  Résidences informelles at 14°N 61°W is a restitution of traces, set as a table of contents. A life size catalogue featuring works by a selection of artists who were invited to stay and create in Martinique over the last decade. This joint exhibition of painting, drawing, video, sculptures and installations reveals no elaborated sub-text but a variety of  individual artistic formulations, critical tensions and paradoxes aiming to question the experience and feel of these artists during their stay.. There are no conceptual guidelines under which the  works in the exhibition can be seen. It is an invitation to visitors to confront themselves with each work individually and to re-assess the work by the artists and choices of the collector who invited them. Multiple perspectives are shown, which emphasize the visual and meaningful presence of  the works and reflect as well on what it may mean to be an artist and make art nowadays, in Martinique, under the same conditions than the local artists.

In contrast, rather then ordering possible associations around a concept, the title refers to various conditions and processes, regarding the stay and resulting works by each artist. The dynamic that it stresses is also one of the fundamental structuring, conceptual principles of the exhibition.

Residences Informelles is not only an off-beat exhibition at espace d’art contemporain 14°N 61°W, but also an insight into recent works and productions by international artists who stayed in Martinique.

 The purpose of this selection is more an attempt to offer the local public a contemporary reading  of the complex artistic reality, with the help of various concepts – nation, identity, personal versus   public, the question of communities, etc –, metaphors and thoughts, and their overlapping or parallel representations.

 Résidences Informelles provides a new way of looking at the artists– not from a preset distance but out of the direct confrontation with the artwork, its impact. Thus, what has been created is not a thematic, but a multi-thematic exhibition basically arranged around the artworks produced during the residencies: It is in examining the individual pieces, artistic attitudes and strategies that a dialogue can be established. 

The aim of this exhibition is primarily to allow a local public, novice, to learn, to encounter contemporary art works, to discover the world of visual arts, whether by local artists or works of

foreign artists, but also to discover the island of Martinique through the prysm of contemporary art. In this, espace d’art contemporain 14°N 61°W meets with its ongoing objective, to allow the  issemination and promotion of a selection of local artists, introducing their productions in a wider international program.
