Agathe de Bailliencourt seeks an image of liberation that derives from this effort and a confrontation between different rationalities: the rationality of society, which very basically speaks of function, and the rationality of art - which speaks of everything else. "Despite Territories" is an attempt to arrange this general direction within the form of a printed book. The underlying relations become evident in this publication, representing and confronting a selection of both installations and her work on canvas and paper. "Despite Territories" is not least being published in conjunction with Bailliencourt's first large solo exhibition in New York City, where the regarding paintings, all full of hardly printable colors, will be on view.
