The exhibition centres around the primary sign of the dot. Modest, but certainly decisive, it is what connects the artworks of the 6 artists gathered for this occasion in the space of AKINCI: Ismaïl Bahri, Charbel-joseph H.Boutros, Stéphanie Dadour, Sirine Fattouh, Stéphanie Saadé, Lei Saito and Vincent Verhoef.


The dot is present in all of the shown works, in a direct or indirect way, intentionally or not. Of different sizes and shapes, sometimes with no visible shape at all, it is, more than a pattern, a structuring element declined into a constellation of endless potentialities.


What can a dot become? The validity of the dot is questioned in the title of the show: isn’t it too little or too unimportant to become anything at all? In the show it becomes a hole, a ball, a figure, a seed, a star… These dots of different natures oscillate between the tiny and the immense, the earthly and the cosmic, the political and the poetical. We are lead to explore these multiple dimensions.
