Aurélien Froment
1st - 31st March 2010

This March tank.tv will be exhibiting a selection of nine videos made
between 2001 and 2009 by the artist Aurélien Froment.

Without reducing Froment’s work to ineffectual buzzwords it is safe to say
that both process and situation both have central roles within his oeuvre.
Working through the thematic prisms of play, theatre and architecture
Froment allows himself to take a magpie approach to the specifics of art and
culture as subject matter. This scope takes in Friedrich Froebel’s building
blocks for children, Frank Lloyd Wright, knot-making, Kazimir Malevich and
lazy stage prompters, amongst many others. This range of foci is held
together by assonance, rather than archetype and the gentle tide is always
back to process, learning and the potent pregnancy of situation.

The idea of filmmaking is important to understanding Froment’s work. His
recent exhibition at Gasworks in London set the viewer within the
potentially fecund space of projection and for him life’s experiences can be
understood through the processes of filmmaking – editing, flashback and
discarded scenes. With this in mind we are very pleased to bring a selection
of his videos to tank.tv, a platform that deals exclusively with the moving
image. Of course, we would not reduce this artist’s work to a few words so
you’ll simply have to visit www.tank.tv for the full, extended experience.

This exhibition has been generously supported by Arts Council England and
Paris Calling.
