Comme invest in us. You'll strike gold, BROTkunsthalle, Vienne (Autriche), 2012


EXHIBITION 7/09 - 2/11 2012 (Group show)
“Come Invest in Us. You’ll Strike Gold,” refers to the words spoken by Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika after being elected for the first time in 1999. As much as this was an economic promise addressed to his country, it was also a seductive wink to foreign investors. Since then, entrepreneurs have indeed honored his invitation with the heavy support of various international governments.
Based on artist Djamel Kokene’s eponymous work, Come Invest in Us. You’ll Strike Gold – The Exhibition scrutinizes the scope of Western, as well as Arab, economic and financial interests at stake in the MENA region, interests that the recent popular uprisings and concurrent international political gamesmanship and strategic maneuvering have only made more blatant.

"Restance (Small Yellow Section of wall) ", by Djamel Kokene, on 2012.
Urban intervention. Djamel Kokene offers us a new work by recovering of yellow paint a house in ruin, ultimate vestige of a district in construction site.   
Evoking his work, he says ": What interests me here, through this gesture of covering, it is so much the paradoxical character between the flashy visual effect
and the status of ruin, that the possibility of producing here an oscillating shape between archaeological object, unusual object and object of perception.

Still visible / go there!

ollowing the repression and under the shadows
of the catastrophes that inflicted in the twentieth century, 
the world today is on the verge of the ultimate disaster 
without any ability to place it in the future.
