What is the value of a work of art? How does a particular meaning become perceptible? These questions naturally interact within the framework of history of art, but also in the way we categorise the practices of contemporary art.
In 2012, as part of an exhibition at the Monnaie de Paris, Benjamin Efrati and Noel Sarlaw respond by proposing an intriguing theory, putting in perspective the Significatogenesis of Mario Amehou and the research of the economist Frédéric Lordon.
What is The Gnozo Show?
Quite a natural question if you have never heard of Reality 3.
Gnozo is a multimedia project : it spans over live shows, psychedelic conferences, and recursive literature.
As for The Gnozo Show, the best way to discover its true nature is by taking a sneak peek. Don’t get discouraged : the spoken language may be French, but the English subtitles are literally BURNED into the film for you pleasure. Here is Episode 1 : on Irony.
The first season of this monthly web-series will air at the end of each month until February 2020.
Web-series are sometimes annoying, as they try to appear funny while bluntly repeating common opinions. Youtubers suffer the same disease : instead of producing original content as they claim to, they often end up repeating silly memes and taking credit for other people’s jokes.
The Gnozo Show is different : it asks questions nobody dares to ask, informs viewers on topics they seldom think of and yet assume they understand.
On top of being on the frontier of philosophical research, The Gnozo Show works within a tight framework of recursive psychedelic absurd humour.
If you have no idea what these words signify, then by all means, check out Episode 1 on Irony and stay tuned. If you are sure you know your way around Irony, try Episode 2 and discover the incredible connexions between the Baroque and the Digital.
Take notice : MORE ARE COMING.
Le Galéisme: multimedia performance by Benjamin Efrati
Nuit Blanche Kyoto 2018, Yôkai Soho, in Exercice for Death 2, curated by Naoki Miyasaka.
Normative Choreographies in the Public Space is the first public presentation of Galeism. In this multi-media performance, Benjamin Efrati re-appropriates pictograms found in the public space and transforms them into the very first Galeist dance choreography. Through the embodiment of the Galeist attitude toward social norms, the performer opposes traditional dualism and underlines the absence of border between presence and absence, animality and abnormality, art and non-art.
