For its inauguration, Mortadelle, Mayeur Projects’ project space in France, presents Nothing Recedes Like Failure, a group exhibition co-curated by Ana Iwataki and Marion Vasseur Raluy.
This exhibition attempts to grasp what it means to fail or succeed in artistic production, in an artistic career. Bringing together the works of six artists of the same generation, two seemingly at-odds aesthetics are juxtaposed, like trying to compare Vermeer’s apples to Matisse’s oranges. Somewhere between a decor in its own right and an intimate space, Mortadelle becomes a vessel for these practices questioning in more or less direct manners each artist’s relationship with form and finish.
