Matt Copson: Restaurant Satyr
Oct 20 – Dec 9, 2023
High Art
Arles, France

I’m sick of listening
I’m sick of listening to you complain What about my allergies?
Just look at me silently
Enjoy my face
God, I can’t stand my own voice either

I asked for recommendation and got the most popular thing If you were to ask me I’d say this menu is foul
I don’t need to be reminded of poverty
I don’t aspire to be morally elevated
I’ve tried attitudes
And found them all pointless
I just want steak

Hey it’s me
Not good news
Did you hear what I said?
The signal’s bad
Have you heard about my condition? I wish it upon everyone
So I could be understood better

Where’s my knife?
It must have fallen down here somewhere Wow, it’s so quiet here
I wish I could live here
I can’t stand one more day of inadequacy My wife’s a goddess, my child’s a prodigy I need to sever all ties

Stop crying, darling
It’s not the end of the world Everyone is here to celebrate you
Is that a drawing of mummy? Where did you get such a beautiful hand? Are you thinking about death again? Are you thinking about my death?

Give us a kiss
Introduce me to your boy as his new daddy I’ll teach him how to critically assess And interpret his pictures
When I look at ‘em I see God
He’s a big spider
Fuck, that can’t be him, can it?

    The Phair – a neologism that is a manifesto, synthesis of Photography and Fair – is an annual event dedicated to photography. The Phair is addressed to some of the leading contemporary art galleries – and not necessarily only to those already specialized in photography – that, on the occasion of the fair, showcase an artistic project related to the theme of the image and art works created with photographic or video material.

  • A Model
    Feb 9 – Sep 8, 2024

    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)

  • Patrick Weldé: Freiheit
    Goswell Road

    On the occasion of our exhibition with Weldé at CFAlive Milan L’AMOUR TOUJOURS, we publish a new edition of the previously sold-out book that we produced with Weldé in 2017, FREIHEIT. All of the photographs in FREIHEIT were taken by Weldé on disposable cameras between 2011-2015. They show a tender side to the artist and his friend circle, and the purest form of trust. (more…)
