The exhibition is part of the Nouvelles Vagues / New Waves event organized by Palais de Tokyo along with 30 galleries and art spaces throughout Paris.
Opening on Saturday, 22 June 2013, 3-9pm
NO is a two channel video-installation that was co-produced by Liverpool Biennial and Kamel Lazaar Foundation and comissioned by Liverpool Biennial in 2012.
Nadia Kaabi-Linke’s project NO is a two-channel video installation, presenting a dialogue in which a crowd, without power despite their numbers, opposes an individual voice of authority.
The work focuses on the rigorous VISA process that many must go through in order to enter the U.K. Kaabi-Linke draws a parallel between these contemporary regulations and the Holy Inquisition, in which brutal judiciary procedures presumed a guilty verdict without a fair hearing.
NO also considers ideas of immanence and transcendence, and the way in which the situation in the film might also stand for a switch between the bureaucratic voice that governs the physical borders we may cross, and the supernatural border between life and what may exist beyond it.

At Palais de Tokyo, “Nouvelles vagues” (New Waves) is a large-scale event organized by 21 international young curators (hailing from 13 different countries), working individually or in groups, and selected by a jury from over 500 candidates.
Opening on Thursday, 20 June beginning at 8pm!
Daily open, from noon to midnight!
Claudine Papillon Gallery is pleased to present Looking for Video, a group exhibition curated by Valentine Meyer and Marion Papillon as part of the Nouvelles Vagues event by Palais de Tokyo. Aiming to present not only a great variety of videos but also works which haven't been previously screened in Paris, the curators invited fifty international curators as well as the Young Curators selected by Palais de Tokyo, to present a choice of outstanding videos, which had marked them recently. No theme was given, but the criteria of relevance.
The enthusiastic feedback from Singapore, Paris, Sao Paulo, Sion, Bahia, and Zurich was unexpectedly rich. A pre-selection of 55 videos was viewed by a jury that has since selected works by 18 artists to feature in the exhibition. The jury has awarded three artists, Basir Mahmood, Hiwa K, and Javier Pérez, whose videos will be screened as well at Fondation d'entreprise Ricard.
Members of the jury: Colette Barbier (Director, Fondation d’entreprise Ricard) Caroline Bourgeois (Curator, Collection François Pinault) Patrice Joly (Founder of 02 magazine and independent curator) Isabelle Manci (Inspecteur de la création artistique, Ministry of culture and communication), Anaël Pigeat (Chief Editor, Art Press), Giuliana Setari Carusi (Founder and president, Dena Foundation for Contemporary Art), Valentine Meyer (Curator and Director of artist residence programme, Dena Foundation for Contemporary Art) Marion Papillon (Director, Claudine Papillon Gallery)
Curators : Valentine Meyer and Marion Papillon
