I NEVER PLAY BASKETBALL NOW – EVA TAULOIS
EXHIBITION FROM SEPTEMBER 15 TO OCTOBER 17, 2015
OPENING RECEPTION ON SEPTEMBER 12, 6 PM
“I NEVER PLAY BASKETBALL NOW by Eva Taulois, is a new solo exhibition of work resulting from her artist residency at Diagonale this summer. At the heart of the French artist’s presentation is her familiar arsenal of materials, displayed alongside the free experimentations her extended installation period has allowed.
Operating through analogy, Eva Taulois favours the use of familiar objects, re-adapting their forms until their original nature is confused. These referent forms, now disembodied from their original meaning, come to exist within a visual language steeped in abstraction. In her work, Eva Taulois analyzes various contexts from which she creates minimalist and often-colourful sculptures composed primarily of textiles. She undertakes the domestication of her materials through the creation of forms and counter-forms, negating their use, re-evaluating the notion of frameworks and devices inscribed within artistic, sociological and historical concepts.

William Basinski is a classically trained musician and composer who has been working in experimental media for over 30 years in New York City and most recently, California. Employing obsolete technology and analog tape loops, his haunting and melancholic soundscapes explore the temporal nature of life and resound with the reverberations of memory and the mystery of time.
