Philippe Chancel - Datazone
" Once the scenography of the Adrien Gardère studio is completed, the Datazone exhibition by Ph. Chancel appears to me in its Warburg’s dimension.
It is Mnemosyne moved into a contemporary geopolitics, I think of the introduction to Georges Didi-Hubermann's article "Sampling chaos": "We could rightly consider Aby Warburg's Mnemosyne atlas as a tool to collect or "sample", by interposed images, the great chaos of history. In short, with the black plates of the atlas dotted with figures of all kinds, it would be a question of creating intelligibility plans capable of making certain "cuts of chaos" to constitute a kind of archaeology or "cultural geology" aimed at making the historical immanence of the images sensitive. And as by rebounds or ricochets, it would finally be a question of bursting out new concepts, new ways of thinking about social and cultural temporality."(ETPH n° 27, mai 2011)"
Michel Poivert, curator of the exhibition Datazone by Philippe Chancel in Rencontres internationales de la photographie d'Arles.

An Indigenous Woman’s View of the National Gallery of Canada
A fantastic article in the Canadian Art Foundation Magazine by Adrienne Huard on the Canadian and Indigenous Art Galleries designed by Studio Adrien Gardère in Ottawa:
"Instead of creating an “otherness,” a divide between the Western and Indigenous perspective, NGC was able to integrate the two while providing a candid portrayal of the destructive colonization our communities have faced. In the future, I hope to see this progress as an exemplary model for other cultural spaces to encourage reconciliation for the Indigenous population of Canada."
