They say that “if you ignore it, history repeats itself…”
Yet don’t you find it strange to have such faith in the taste for novelty?
Surprisingly, the algorithm used by André Cadere will modify a starting sequence until it repeats itself.
In each bar, he systematically inverted certain blocks which were called “errors”.
But since he clarified: “My work does not show permutations. But a report —
that between order and error. This can only exist in relation to an order…
It is only through the abrupt contact with reality that we perceive it”,
thus the permutations are symbolic of “errors”.
André Cadere was known to consider the place of exhibition with a minimal point of view:
“Le travail est exposé là où il est vu”.
The most emblematic result is that it intervened, with its bars, in places, during events, when we were not expecting it.
Then this behavior could be considered as this same “error”.
“Error” in an institution system that did not recognize it.
And as this type of provocation certainly generates some publicity, he was therefore invited to the official representation of his own works.
It must change its mode of presentation, without changing its motto; as H.Bize says:
“from 1975, Cadere has his own exhibitions for which he will develop very interesting processes and procedures, both spatially and temporally”.
In other words, the institutions now accepted this “error” under the pretext of provocation and novelty.
This interpretation suggests that his system repeated itself, that it ended.
The goal of Manu.V. is, by correcting the symbolic “errors” and to reproduce the same interventions to see if and how the institutions react.
To learn and understand how André Cadere’s work is assimilated, known and respected by the very people who praise it.
Of course, in doing so, he runs the risk of being considered backward-looking, but is he?
