(Je ferme mon dernier carton)
C’est un vingtaine d’années d’ennui qui finissent ce soir. Un lent moment de respiration et je saute – Il parait que là où je vais, rien ne sera pareil et que je ne serais plus jamais exactement le même. A graver ton prénom partout où j’ai pu, […] — The collaboration between Ethan Assouline and Philippe Hallais started through the creation of artwork and visuals for Hallais’ latest album called “An American Hero”. Ethan Assouline created a string of short videos to accompany the album, and the next chapter of the collaboration now unfolds in the format of an exhibition. The album “An American Hero” is inspired by the dramatic structure of reality TV biopics of high-level athletes. From the election of young sports talents in high school onto the questions of their injuries, betrayals and finally to their redemption. The album is an imaginary soundtrack for a nonexisting mass-produced reality series that follows through its 11 acts the Greek Tragedy. In “Angela (An American Hero, Chapitre 2)” the narrative continues as a collection of sculptures, paintings and compositions of still lifes. New pieces by Ethan Assouline aim to weave the portrait of a hero who isn’t there anymore. The story is told through the absence of the body. The exhibition is a physical illustration of the album by Philippe Hallais, and the second chapter can be only perceived through the series of fetishised objects and haunting memories.
