“No Teeth Left” is a Group show by Collective Disgrace who are a group of four young artists based in Geneva who are interested in the concepts of alteration, the monstrous and the strange. Together, they work and play with questions regarding apocalyptic imaginaries by reappropriating fear as a tool for collective action. They believe fear can be a positive force with the power to relativize our existence in the face of otherness, which we have constructed as a form of “Nature”, putting humans in contact with their environment to a greater extent.  

For their Exhibition at Tunnel Tunnel in Lausanne Collective Disgrace were interested in how originally, "monster" refers to the one being pointed at. This root testifies to the idea of an entity that is inherently out of step with the norms in place, yet assimilated so as not to risk becoming a threat. It is on this threat that our cohabitation with the savage must have been based. 

By imagining and embracing a return of the monstrous as a form of otherness, it may be possible to avoid the apocalypse, thus Collective Disgrace proposed an exhibition that suggests, with a touch of comedy and irony, to take a new look at our relationship with the strange. Transforming Tunnel Tunnel into a cabinet of monstrosity, the forms presented play with the codes of repulsion and fear of an era that is now over, in an attempt, at least in thought, to resurrect chimeras.

Reopening: 16.5.20
