X-C: Transference between two neighbours is the result of the close collaboration between (former) WOW Artists in Residence Xavier Robles de Medina and Clément Carat. The exhibition that aims to explore the artists’ relationship as neighbours in WOW through a confrontation of their respective practices.
The idea for this exhibition originated from a deep respect between the two young artists, and a desire to explore the boundaries of their work. Xavier’s drawings, in between dream and photograph, are in sharp contrast with Clément’s images, which shine a new light on everyday objects with his etching technique. Departing from this opposition the two artists will try to reach a middle point, not only through familiar techniques but also through experiment.
The exhibition becomes an experimental ground in which both artists deepen their dialogue as young artists in residence, and explore further their position in the current developments of the art world.
