An exhibition featuring recent cinematic works from Julian Rosefeldt, Christoph Girardet and Matthias Muller, Clement Page, Reynold Reynolds, Marion Tampon-Lajarriette and Mattia Biagi

Exhibition Dates: September 18th, 2014 – December 20, 2014

There are few subjects in the study of cinema that are quite as salient as fear & desire. Freud, Lacan, Lyotard and dozens more have written about the desiring, or libidinal, function of the cinematic, while semioticians such as Christian Metz and Laura Mulvey have used such psychological, voyeuristic mechanisms such as distance, displacement, fetishism and lack to develop some of the key concepts of cinematic theory. For Metz, cinema is, as he says, “an extraordinary activator of fetishism [in that] it endlessly mimes the primal displacement of the look between the seen absence and the presence nearby… thus cinema literally plays with the terror and the pleasure of fetishism, with its combination of fear and desire.”
Co-curated by Clement Page, the exhibition Fear & Desire at Young Projects features 6 films by some of Europe’s most respected film-and-video artists. Each medium-to-short work attempts to find that place located somewhere in between the two eponymous emotions--where the protagonist (as well as the viewer) searches for heightened emotional states that ultimately are also the source dread.
