en. The exhibition project WHAT'S ON UR MIND invites participating artists to entrust the realization of an exclusive work to Benoit Ménard from written exchanges. Following the example of one of the last series by Martin Kippenberger, entitled Jacqueline : des tableaux que Pablo n’a pas pu peindre – in which he imagines the continuity of THE painter’s work – (*) it produces, around an epistolary correspondence, a remote show placing curating, delegation, collaboration, imitation and plagiarism at the heart of the challenge.

Ideally excluding any image exchanges, and working from descriptions and notes the artists sent, Benoit Ménard proposes an esthetic vectorization, as his hand becomes a sort of mechanical extension of their project.
Interpretation, ambiguities triggered by language and exchange, trust, respecting an intention, and especially the execution form are the parameters that are at work here, and considered as a potential form of collaborative production.

(*) or the project Do It : The Compendium – publication on Hans Ulrich Obrist’s initiative including the works notices especially designed to be seen out (renewed) endlessly by a third.
so I picture a movie
with lots of combinations.
lines and curves,
for example a dike which goes far away on the sea with cubist pebbles and puddles of strawberry ‘yop’ and soft smartphones
the projection of this animated gif (the wave) on the belly of a white animal
like a horse
white iPad tablets dancing
with a lot of basinski type loop music
lots of meditation, not any 3d but why not some salt dough or some clay,
some rust on the image
I imagine also so many flames, some burning plastic
some crying men
lots of cubism
tears digestion
some make-up
gloss shower
maybe sometimes morning car rides with this record and cigarette smoke

fr. Le projet d’exposition WHAT’S ON UR MIND chez EXO propose aux artistes invités de confier à Benoit Ménard la réalisation d’une œuvre inédite à partir d’échanges écrits. À l’instar d’une des dernières séries de Martin Kippenberger intitulée Jacqueline : des tableaux que Pablo n´a pas pu peindre - dans laquelle il imagine la continuité de l’œuvre DU peintre - (*) il a été question, à partir d’une correspondance épistolaire, de produire une exposition à distance dont les enjeux se situent entre le commissariat, la délégation, la collaboration, le mimétisme ou le plagiat.

Excluant idéalement tout envoi d’images et à partir des descriptions et des notes qu’ils ont transmis, Benoit Ménard a proposé aux artistes une forme de vectorisation de leur univers esthétique afin que sa main se fasse, d’une certaine manière, le bras mécanique de leur projet. L’interprétation, l’ambiguïté du langage, des échanges, la confiance, le respect de l’intention, mais surtout la forme d’exécution, sont des paramètres qui font œuvre et qui sont envisagés comme une forme de production collaborative.

(*) ou du projet Do It : The Compendium - publication qui regroupe sur l’initiative d’Hans Ulrich Obrist des notices d’oeuvres pensées spécialement pour être reconduites à l’infini par un tiers.
j'imagine donc un film
avec plein de combinaisons.
des lignes et des courbes,
par exemple une digue qui va loin dans la mer avec des cailloux cubistes et des flaques de yop a la fraise et des smartphones mous
la projection de ce gif animé (la vague) sur le ventre d'un animal blanc
comme un cheval
des tablettes de iPad blanches qui dansent 
avec plein de loop de musique a la basinski
bcp de méditation, pas de 3d mais pourquoi pas de la pate à sel ou bien de l'argile,
de la rouille sur l'image 
j'imagine aussi bcp de flamme, du plastique qui brule
des hommes qui pleurent
beaucoup de cubisme
digestion de larmes
du maquillage
une pluie de gloss
par moment peut être des voyages en voiture matinale avec ce disque et de la fumée de cigarette
