I have been part of the resource newsletter since September and actively
follow all your exchanges. Unfortunately I am very often out of Berlin and
I haven't be able to attend one of your meetings but I am really looking
forward to it.
I would like to share with you the upcoming exhibition (revolving to sound)
at L'Atelier-ksr, art gallery which I run since 2011 here in Berlin.
I hope this project will raise your interest and sincerely hope to meet you
very soon, here or there.
My very best,
BENJAMIN LAURENT AMAN
Saturday 14. November, 7 - 9 pm
15. November - 19. December 2015

© Benjamin Laurent Aman, *Imaginary Time*, 2015, video (screen caption),
The concept of Imaginary Time recalls the field of mathematics and
cosmology. Rather than evoking imagination, Imaginary Time suggests a
different temporality than the one experienced every day, where events
occur linearly, in a forward motion. Imaginary Time makes no distinction
between the dimensions of space and time, revealing no substantial
difference between rest and movement. Past, present and future are equal
and stable, offering the very same sense of wonder that one experiences in
a physical space. It is a disoriented time, with no start nor end,
continuous and homogeneous, infinite and immanent. In this monadic world,
how much our modern consciousness is capable of grasping a diversity of
moments? (J.F. Lyotard, *The Inhuman: Reflections on time*, 1992).
Consider an understanding of time wherein it takes us somewhere else, to
this invisible limit which permits the exploration of a time that doesn’t
occur, threatening the false integrity of perception.
Through his graphite drawings, installations and sound traces, Benjamin
Laurent Aman relentlessly invokes vibrations and imperceptible frequencies,
awakening our perception to transitory states. An effort to delay and
multiply reactions, increasing and expanding all possible responses.
Benjamin Laurent Aman <http://www.benjaminlaurentaman.com/indexe.html> (1981,
FR) is a sound and visual artist whose work oscillates between
drawing, sculpture and sound, most frequently echoing each other and
flowing from a range of perceptions combining a physical, a mental and an
emotional approach of space.

(Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, Centre d'art contemporain L'Onde in
Vélizy-Vollacoublay, CAC Nei Liicht Luxembourg, Selasar Sunaryo Museum
Bandung, Space London, sector 2337 in Chicago) and dedicated ones (Styx
Projects, Able Kulturverein, L'Atelier-ksr in Berlin, PapelArt in Paris,
Kunstraum Michael Barthel in Leipzig). In Paris, the drawings cabinets The
Drawer and the Manucius Editions presented his work as well as publishing
it (*Relève de la garde*, Collection Sec au Toucher, Edition P,
2007, BLA has carried out many sound performances all over Europe. He has
been invited to festivals and radio shows (Epsilonia in Paris, Le tétraèdre
in Bruxelles, The Wire on Air, Resonance FM in London…) and performed at
the 10th Berlin Biennale, Transmediale X, Club Transmediale (CTM) and Nu
Substance Indonesia amongst others.
