"Trilogy of the Moderns + Chaos"


Exhibition Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum... par totovince

THE ART SHOW - May 18th to September 1st, 2013
Delete it all, reinvent it all urgently. Impose the diktat of absolute happiness and universal thought … that is the gospel of the Modern! In its crazed acceleration, contemporary history is defined, with impeccable gusto, by some of the most remarkable creatures of our rapidly evolving society: the Moderns. They have no other names, no origin, no religious confession. They have no language of their own, nor do they possess a distinct culture providing them with a specific identity. They live without borders, without resentment, and, therefore, without any real issues to concern themselves with. Already immerged in the global, virtual space, they are the premises of the Mankind of tomorrow. Adepts of the “yes” without the “no”, the “good” without the “bad”, the “me” without the “us”, of consensus rather than polemic, they dream of being perfect. So they smudge their errors, create illusions, rejoice in their questionable bliss. Impatient to transform society, the Moderns are candid optimists, more modern than Modernity itself. Proselytes of a consensual, universal style of thought, they are armed with a kind of permanent happiness. The act of pleasing everybody becomes an article of faith. But what if their efforts were to lead to the end of history as we have always known it? The Trilogy of the Moderns is a Revolution in three acts. Between comedy and tragedy, it paints a picture of a confused humanity, blindly groping in the darkness, guided by an absolute desire for generalised happiness.
As committed witnesses of the metamorphoses affecting society, the photographer, Gérard Rancinan, and the writer, Caroline Gaudriault, entertain an ongoing dialogue, delivering, each in their own medium, their observations on humanity in its mad progress. The authors are no more able than anyone else to escape their era and its illusions. Victims and profiteers of a modernity full of promises and disappointments, they describe and recount the world with nostalgia, concern, humour and, above all, lucidity.

Like a ship on the Danube, the Museum of Contemporary Art Danubiana in Bratislava offers an artistic scenography through 40 monumental photographs, texts as bubbles of thoughts, movies, still lives...
The River Danube has lent the museum its name and the rest is the result of the enthusiasm and initiative of the Slovak gallery owner Dr. Vincent Polakovič and the financial resources of the Dutch collector and art patron Gerard H. Meulensteen.
