Fabian Knecht builds gestures. Between the activity stretched out towards the goal to reach and the spontaneous irruption piercing the weave of time, the paradox is obvious. Once stated, temporalities, logical categories crash into one another : building gestures is an oxymoron. At most could we sharpen our abilities, practice some of our skills in order to prepare the field into which a series of upcoming potential gestures will enter. To understand the artist’s modus operandi, we must nevertheless embrace the oxymoron and dispose of our placid claim to array language as we would of a superfluous piece of clothing. With Fabian Knecht, the focus is set on a unique occurence that might extend to the specific space-time continuum that receives it. The formal title he usually gives to his work already claims it : they all bear the name of an action, the German -UNG suffix indicating it’s a question of process and not a thing in itself. The actions performed by the artist are often straightforward (a simple gesture), however expansive their manifestation might be. Though they don’t illustrate nor proclaim, they nevertheless come to reprogram reality.
