Baykam is interested in the group of artists, he choses to call the “International Underground”, not because of their credits that would secure them safe places in Biennials or art fairs. Some of them maybe even vegetating under water as unidentified living creatures. Some of them can have already quite established names. It doesn’t matter. This is not a name-dropping exhibit. Baykam can force the dose and “turn into an artist” an ex bank employee turned “bird feeder” tramp like Giusseppe Belvedere, from the streets of Paris. In his selections, Baykam did not choose to order new work productions and went rather for existing pieces, except for his spontaneous video produced together with him. The curator met Belvedere by chance in the back of the Piazza, in front of the Centre Pompidou in Paris. This I-Phone film might be worth your attention…
