Il n'y a Plus Rien ('There is Nothing Left'). Alexandria, Egypt.
A city exists in the world and is home to some its inhabitants, and yet at the same time seems to have disappeared for some others. This project addresses the construction of the city in time and that of history: in the unstable relations between knowledge and experience, fact and fiction, association and potential, a fragile scaffolding is formed and used as an attempt to foresee the present.
Celine Condorelli works with art and architecture, combining a number of approaches from developing structures for supporting to broader enquiries into forms of commonality and discursive sites, resulting in projects merging politics, fiction, public space and whatever else feels urgent at the time. She is the author/editor of 'Support Structures' on Sternberg Press, 2009, and one of the founding directors of Eastside Projects, an artist-run exhibition space in Birmingham, UK. Recent work includes 'Il n'y a Plus Rien' (ACAF, Alexandria, Manifesta 8, 2010) 'Revision part 1 and 2' (Artists Space, New York, 2009, and Cell Projects, London, 2010), 'Curtain Show' (Eastside Projects, 2010), 'Life always Escapes' (Wysing Arts, Cambridge, and e-flux journal 2009), 'Hidden Curriculum', Casco, Utrecht (2007), GIL Biennial, Ghuang Zhou, Shanghai, Beijing, (2007), 4'33'', Magazin 4 Bregenzer Kunstverein, (2007), 'theatre pieces', Tate Triennial (2006). Recent projects include developing Support Structure phase 1-10, with Artist-Curator Gavin Wade, at Chisenhale Gallery, The Economist, ICA, V&A, London, amongst other (2003-2009).
