PLEASE BE QUIET PLEASE.  paintings  by CHRIS DENNIS words by LAUREN CAPONE

\n

APRIL 13 – MAY 18 2013

\n< p align="center" style="text-align: left\;">Reception\, Saturday April 1 3th. 3-6pm (Reading by Lauren Capone at 4.30pm)

\n

P lease be quiet\, please. (Named after Raymond Carver’s first short stor y collection) is Chris’ third solo show at Coup and sees a further distilla tion of his long standing preoccupations with surface and texture. His reco gnizable Therianthropes are still present\, but are overpowered by forces f lowing out and over these small panels against a backdrop of surprising col our.

\n

In his own words: “There are a lot of things I don’t say\, shouldn’t say. Things I don’t want to hear.

\n

These are some o f those things”.

\n

 Adding another dimension to the show\, Chris is delighted that New Orleans poet\, Lauren Capone has agreed to provide a series of ‘responses’ to the work.  They will presented in the gallery alon gside the paintings and included in a forthcoming publication.

\n

  “Something squirms to loose itself of me\,

\n

a thing not to sa y\, I wish I wouldn’t have said\,

\n

 mouths agape\, as though telling.

\n

Tell me:

\n

 Conflagration

\n

And the stuff enters a soul.”

Inspired by the work of the German writer W. G. Sebald\, the exhibition L’Image papillon (The Butterfly Image) addresses the com plex relations that link image and memory. It gathers together sixteen arti sts whose work\, like Sebald’s\, explores the realms of memory and history through the concepts of experience and overlapping temporalities.

\n

B orrowing its title from a recent essay on Sebald’s work by the writer and l iterary researcher Muriel Pic\, the exhibition uses the figure of the ‘butt erfly image’ to examine the questions this kind of relation to the past ask s in the context of the visual arts. Tracing its recurrence in Sebald’s boo ks\, Pic considers the butterfly as the allegorical image of a dialectical relation to memory – on the one hand the scientific gesture of collecting a nd archiving\, in which the past is frozen or ‘pinned down’\, and on the ot her hand a more emphatic relation to the past\, which sees memory as the pl ace of experience\, of an ‘observation of the past as movement’. Or as Pic describes it\, ‘we follow the memory with the gaze\, it twirls like a butte rfly.’

\n
\n
\n

One of the characteristics of the four works of fiction Sebald published between 1990 and 2001 – Vertigo\, The Emigrants \, The Rings of Saturn and Austerlitz – is the presence\, in the main body of the text\, of uncaptioned black-and-white images of mostly im precise origin and nature\, which act like memories punctuating the narrati ve as it unfolds. Similar to these images\, the works in this exhibition ex plore different possibilities to materialise the images of the past in the realm of experience. They share several key motifs of Sebald’s books\, incl uding the crossing of temporalities\, a sensible relation to documents and archives\, the interweaving of personal and collective history\, destructio n\, the fragment and the trace.

\n

The exhibition tak es the shape of fifteen monographic presentations\, each comprising a group of works or a large-scale installation and introduced by an image from Seb ald’s books. Through the connections they establish with the works on displ ay\, these images attempt to emulate two modes of relation that lie at the heart of Sebald’s writing – montage and coincidence – in the exhibition.
