Art Gallery Heterotopia ” the other place “


Art  Project :

Art Gallery Heterotopia “the other place”

Amid the last lockdown (Covid pandemic), the notion of establishing the contemporary Heterotopia Art Gallery emerged as a platform. I choise this name reflecting the area :  Art Gallery Heterotopia , an other place.

Art Gallery Heterotopia for Emerging Contemporary Artists is also to present young painters that I met in their art studio.

The alternate plan involves exhibiting local emerging artists, establishing an online store to sale.

Stuck in France, unable to travel, I discovered numerous stored artworks awaiting presentation .

Now I need to present them in the new Gallery, HETEROTOPIA ART GALLERY.

New paradygme of contemporary art gallery Heterotopia project

Heterotopia Art Gallery ” l’autre lieu ” is an innovative contemporary art space that offers a unique combination of traditional and modern exhibitions.

The gallery challenges conventional art views and explores art’s connection with diverse disciplines through groundbreaking exhibitions and perspectives.

With its diverse range of artists, the gallery provides a platform for creative expression, experimentation, and collaboration.

However, Heterotopia Art Gallery is an exciting new space that is sure to inspire!

Since 2018, envisioning an extension to my Lesquerde art studio in France as a presentation space has fueled my creativity.

There have been many issues with the supply of materials .

Michel Foucault
Heterotopia from Michel Foucault ( example )

“Heterotopia ” was fashioned on ancient Greek words  τόπος  ( location ) and ἕτερος ( other ) by the french phylosoph Michel Foucault ( 1926 -1984 ).

The phylosophe theorized the word heterotopia in his work ” des espaces autres “, 2004 Gallimard edition .

The term of Heterotopia is defined by a material positioning of Utopia.

They are tangible places housing the imaginary like the children’s cabanne, a theatre, an artistic place.

Additionally, it serves as an enclosed area, designated for various purposes like retirement homes, asylums, cemeteries, or venues for activities.

Extract text Michel Foucault :

    In a lecture given in March 1967 to the Cercle d’études architecturales de Paris 1 , Michel Foucault proposed the term “heterotopia” to reflect on ”  absolutely different” spaces (2009, p. 24) …

 Sometimes these elsewhere coincide with institutions and acquire a collective character, sometimes it is individuals who discover them for themselves, so that heterotopias can have a public character (recognized and offered to all) but also exist  at the discretion of each, with “always extraordinarily varied forms” (Ibid., p. 25).

Recent research enabled us to observe how edifying it could be, for people of all ages, to invest spaces that are sometimes marked, sometimes hidden, sometimes unsuspected and conducive to expressing something of their sensitivity, whether it be reflexive, protesting or creative. 

We hypothesize that the concept developed by Foucault can be enlightening for understanding the nature and role of these unique places which participate in education and training.

 After presenting the concept of heterotopia in Foucault, we will begin by showing the role of these space-times in “becoming oneself”, in the sense that they allow appropriations, contestations and inventions.

From this analysis, we will question the paradoxical complementarity of heterotopia with the institution and we will propose a typology of the different ways of exploiting these heterotopias for education and training.

Between the collective and the individual, between the unsituable and the unsituable, the aim will be to propose avenues for reflection on the way in which heterotopia takes on meaning in our contemporary societies as well as among individuals.
