La galerie de la Biennale

Here we have a freehand drawing of a cortex transferred into white neon tubing on a scale determined by the size of the wall it is shown on. As confronting as its title, this work by Adel Abdessemed is accompanied by two films: in "Trust Me" a man at a music stand shows vampire fangs as, seemingly in a fit of madness, he swallows most of the words of various national anthems, from the Marseillaise to God Save the Queen. In "Hot Blood" the same character – this time wearing a red nose – laughs hysterically as, between two paroxysms, we make out the single sentence, "I am a terrorist". These three works share the notion that man, the possessor of enormous freedom, is also a changeable, wishful creature, at once animal and human, reasonable and crazy, who indiscriminately identifies enormous vulnerability with terror, and superficiality with the tragic.
