The curator and critic Guillaume Désanges opens a new programme at La Verrière for 2022 that extends and develops some of the themes of his first series. First comes a group exhibition, “Tactiques du rêve augmenté” (“Tactics of Augmented Dreams”), which reflects on the ability of science fiction, anticipation and speculation to propose narratives that facilitate new and different approaches to reality.

Constructing an alternative world is a much talked-about objective, but ideas on how to get there are widely divergent. Art offers other ways to achieve this aim, through imagination and fiction, which open up productive fissures in reality. Continuing the ecological reflection begun with the series “Matters of concern | Matières à panser”, Guillaume Désanges wanted to enlarge the field to science fiction, the better, perhaps, to reappropriate the future.

The exhibition “Tactiques du rêve augmenté”, which brings together fifteen artists, offers, in the curator’s words, an “archipelago of uncertain forms that act as doors opening onto parallel universes, affirming the imagination’s power to function as a tool for political and social transformation”. At La Verrière, established artists rub shoulders with a younger generation, all driven by the same dream-infused perspective: in a hybridisation of different media and concepts, each of them offers stimulating and unexpected paths into an alternative reality.
