This exhibition was inspired by French psychoanalyst
and philosopher Anne Dufourmantelle’s (1964-2017) 2011 book Éloge
du risque (engl. In Praise of Risk, 2019). In one of its brief chapters,
titled “In Suspense”, she advocates that the interim state
itself be appreciated, “Suspension is not the arrested time that
comes before something else happens; it is the event itself”.
She refers to tight-rope walkers and trapeze artists, among others, and
their ability to “attempt this miracle of suspense out on the wire”.
“Taking the risk of being in suspense is rather acrobatic,”
writes Anne Dufourmantelle. And this is also an ability that is demanded
of people in view of the uncertainties and unpredictability that accompany
the current situation: to be—albeit unintentionally—acrobatic.
The current situation puts the spotlight on the frameworks, prospects
and concerns within -our societies, demonstrating that ready-made answers
and demonstrative gestures no longer bring us the same comfort as they
used to. To unburden ourselves and the world, we must put this time ‘in
suspense’ to use: creating room to grow, rather than remain frozen
