Alexandre Singh: La Critique de l’Ecole des Objets

For www.metropolism.com I wrote a review of Alexandre Singh’s ‘installation-play’ La Critique de l’Ecole des Objets. Read it there.

Voor www.metropolism.com heb ik een recensie geschreven van Alexandre Singh’s ‘installatietoneelstuk’ La Critique de l’Ecole des Objets. Lees hem daar (tekst  het Engels).

Alexandre Singh, La Critique de l'Ecole des Objets, installation view. Daphne Spring and Penny Powder

In La Critique de l’Ecole des Objets at Palais de Tokyo Alexandre Singh examines the complex relationships between the art world, humanness and objecthood in a hilarious but intriguing way. Sergei Skoffavitch, a talking self-centred ‘post-neo-marxist’ bottle of household bleach, is displayed on a pedestal. He is one of seven common objects, lit by spotlights when they are ‘on scene’. La Critique de l’Ecole des Objets isn’t your conventional stage play.
