"No pretext\, no effect\, no message: microwave identifies an internatio nal group of artists who deliberate ly reduce their movements and expressive media. These artists imperceptibly move their fingertips to create wo rks of precision and minimal displacement in a quasi-monochromatic context: syntheses and syntactics that reca ll the reductionism of genetic maps or binary codes. But this intimacy doesnʼt require mouse or keyboard\, it is a dialogue of fingertips: art positively digital. The works stand on the borderline between drawing\, knitt ing and writing. A meticulous discipline of the close-up at the antipodes of the instantaneous and the remote control." (microwave\, one\, catalogue\, 123 Watts\, 1999) .


Since 1999\, the (almost) annual edition of microwave has been an opportunity to confirm the
emergence of a ne w attitude. Microwave identifies an international host of artists who commi t to the obscene activity of paying attention. With intense focus\, patience and precision\, the artists in microwave document the relentless pro pagation of delicacy as a subversive activity. The works in microwave touch upon the fragile nature of communi cation\, exchange\, and currency.


Josée Bienvenu gallery is pleased to p resent microwave\, eight- an exhibition of works by international artists who set up various processes of frag mentation and erosion of information. Close attention is given to execution\, a concentration on the productio n process itself.
