Chelsea Space presents an exhibition by American, Paris-based artist Sturtevant and UK-based partnership Secondeditions:

An exhibition
on criminal action, against dominance,
in reference to ethics as considered form
that freedom takes when it is informed by
for thought and symmetry between partners
in dialogue: symmetry as expression of

The result of a correspondence between Sturtevant and Secondeditions initiated in 2002, the project follows two strands of thought:

second reflection – the conscious experience of repetition, the continuous process of rethinking the nature of art and

symmetrical contents – the mirrored relationships between material and thought as presented in the work and the
discussions of the artists involved.

The exhibition features two 3-channel video installations by Sturtevant and video works and objects by Secondeditions.

Exhibition concept: Sturtevant and Secondeditions.

A publication, designed by Secondeditions is available.
