Juliette Pénélope Pépin

1 Nov 2020–31 Jan 2021

working conditions is a moving image created by French artist Juliette Pénélope Pépin, who after having studied Design at The Design Academy, Eindhoven, Netherlands, pursued a Master in Computational Science and then Fine Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London. Pépin’s practice crosses multiple mediums and she is currently studying mud masonry. In working conditions, she uses found footage from the internet, forming a montage of spatial and temporal forces at play in a complex system of ecologies; human and non-human. In some of these moving images, we observe the Notre-Dame burning, dogs being baptized, rock lime transformed to putty, an insects’ first steps, a city engulfed in wildfire smoke, and the glimmer of a necklace in the sunlight. Situated in the immediacy of a pandemic and the epoch of the Anthropocene, working conditions amplifies scales and speeds, reminding us of the roles we play in these ecological infrastructures.

A collaborative written work accompanies the film, montaging conversations and emails between the artist and curator into fragments of & \\ ^ By doing so, and through its graphic sensibilities, this written work complements, through language, the confluence of forces that contribute to these ecologies.
