Michel François, Plans D’Evasion, Installation view, S.M.A.K., Ghent, Belgium, Installation view, 2009

The exhibition in S.M.A.K. originates in Michel François’ ambitious plan to take the time and space necessary to develop a project around Faux Jumeaux, and over a period of more than a year. In concrete, each time this involved the changing constellations of two artists who conceived a work separately and simultaneously, but when we compared them they showed a striking number of similarities. We could describe this as a prelude to what followed, the launching of a mode of thought that generated Plans d’évasion.
