Notes on a post-order of things


‘Was also ist der Organismus in der Welt, wenn nicht der unbedachte Flug eines Möglichen in das Herz des Unmöglichen, das ihn umgibt’ 

(George Bataille, Der Übervölkerte Planet, aus: Das Unfertige System des Nichtwissens)


‘Ich nähere mich diesen Leinwänden wie Notizen, halte sie in einem skizzenhaften und unvollständigem Zustand. Sie geben einer rudimentären Erscheinung der Dinge Form, und eine Struktur, die Gedankenprozesse markiert oder aufzeichnet. 

Ich  habe mit dieser Reihe von Bildern letztes Jahr begonnen, damals als eine Untersuchung des von der Norm Abweichenden, von Grenzerfahrungen und -Überschreitungen, ein anthropologischer Ansatz zu einer aus den Fugen geratenen Welt. Ein imaginatives Zu-Ende-Denken der Dinge als fiktive Repräsentation einer Anders-, Nach- oder Vorzeitlichkeit.

Mittlerweile ist die affirmative Handlung der poetischen Imagination ein Mittel zum Erlangen von Resilienz im Angesicht der realen Umstände geworden.  Ich suche nach einer Möglichkeit bestimmte Ideen und Denkweisen zu überwinden, das Ersticken des Denkens in der alltäglichen Semantik einer konventionalistischen Klassifizierung. Ich denke solange Poesie möglich ist – als das Sehnen nach dem Unmöglichen – kann eine Art von Hoffnung möglich sein. Ich sehe Kunst als ein Mittel der Realität, in dem sie über sich selbst bewusst wird.’

Notes on a post-order of things

‘What therefore is the organism in the world, if not the unconsidered flight of a possible into the heart of the impossible that surrounds it?‘ 

(George Bataille, The Congested Planet, from: The Unfinished System of Nonknowledge)

‘I approach these canvases as notes, keeping them sketch-like and incomplete. They give form to a state of the rudimentary appearances of things and a structure that marks thought processes.

I started this line of paintings last year, back then as a survey on what deviates from the norm, of border experiences and border transgressions, an anthropological approach to a world gone off rail. An imaginative thinking of things to its end; as a fictional representation of an alternative, post- or pre-temporaneity.

Now, the affirmative action of the poetic imagination has become a means of achieving resilience towards real circumstances. I am looking for a way to overcome certain ideas and ways of thinking that tend to suffocate in a type of everyday semantics of conventionalist classification. I think that as long as poetry is possible – as the longing for the impossible – a kind of hope can be possible. I see art as a means of reality to gain consciousness about itself.’

The Guardian | The big picture: Pieter Hugo turns his camera on Mexico

The extraordinary and the everyday jostle for attention in the South African photographer’s examination of Mexican

The Wedding Gift, Juchitán de Zaragoza, 2018 by Pieter Hugo. Photograph: Pieter Hugo

By Sean O´Hagan

Sun 2 Feb 2020

Pieter Hugo’s new series, La Cucaracha (The Cockroach), named after a traditional song made popular during the Mexican revolution, grew out of a visit to the country in 2018. He was invited there by a curator whose stipulation was that he make work on the theme of sex and mortality.

“Mexico’s anarchic, visceral energy got under my skin and sucked me in,” he recalls. “There is an acceptance that life has no glorious victory, no happy ending. Humour, ritual, a strong sense of community and an embrace of the inevitable make it possible to live with tragic and often unacceptable situations.”

Hugo’s approach shifted accordingly to reflect the flamboyance and gritty ordinariness of life there, his images filled with vibrant colours and often mysterious symbolism. This portrait is a case in point. Entitled The Wedding Gift, it shows a young bride in Juchitán de Zaragoza cradling an iguana, a creature considered a symbol of patience, understanding and kindness in Mexico. Conversely, the elaborately competitive mating rituals performed by the male of the species – head-bobbing, nudging, biting and even changing colour – have been mimicked in local song and dance, including a famous traditional ballet, La Iguana de Guerrero.
