Original Stanislas for Rachid

Né en janvier 1941 à Benghazi (Lybie), Rachid Data est un enfant turbulent et très précoce qui infiltre, dés 6 ans, le milieu des télépathes italiens. Après de brillantes études à Tobrouk, dont il ressort toutefois sans le moindre bagage, il décide de quitter son pays natal pour tenter sa chance en Europe, et exerce divers métiers alimentaires, desquels il conservera une polyvalence exceptionnelle, souvent admirée, parfois imitée, mais jamais égalée. Après avoir ravi une médaille de bronze aux jeux paralympiques d’Innsbruck en 1964, et déposé divers brevets grâce notamment à ses travaux dans la physique quantique, crée le Krav Maga et le Bloody Mary, Rachid se lance parallèlement dans une chaine mondiale de Taxiphones et démarre une collection d’oeuvres d’arts grâce à ce commerce florissant. Captivé par la puissance des mouvements artistiques d’après-guerre, précurseur insatiable, il amorce une carrière fulgurante dans les arts plastiques et crée le Mouvement Data, auquel il initie de nombreux jeunes talents. Il bâtit alors la Fondation RD, ainsi que le Data Magic Museum of Tripoli, qui regroupe aujourd’hui plus de six cents oeuvres originales, dont plus de deux mille mètres carrés sont dédiés à sa fameuse collection privée de débris d’avions. Considéré comme un véritable gourou, il décide alors de se retirer dans sa tente luxueuse pour établir les bases d’une troisième voie, philosophie mentaliste dont il est l’annonciateur, et s’adonne quotidiennement au culte du cargo, tout en gardant un oeil prépondérant sur le marché de l’art, dénichant régulièrement de nouveaux bijoux, élargissant ainsi sa colossale collection.

C’est un aperçu de cette collection mythique, mêlant ses propres oeuvres ainsi que celles de ses protégés, que Rachid Data vous propose de découvrir à travers une exceptionnelle exposition itinérante faisant escales dans les grandes villes européennes et africaines.

The case of Richard Dato

"A work of art made in admitted imitation of several style of other works from Data. A composition of incongruous parts; a hodgepodge or pasticcio. Often a pastiche is made in order to ridicule the style of the artist it imitates, but in the case of Dato, the mystic of his général concept encompass the purity and the putrefact of his opposite side. Richard let everything ruined: here comes the magic"

Rachid Data 12/2008 (poème extrait de "The Book of Data")

“Ce qui importe est d’insister sur la quantité croissante de preuves de l’existence d’une conspiration mentale et , de par le monde, pour la destruction des gouvernements organisés, et la prolifération du comportement lui-même et de la réaction produite par le sentiment que crée le langage face au processus d'unification spontané, en harmonie avec les arts et le récital du Vide. Alors seulement, les sentiments seront accordés”
William Kitator - ambassadeur du Data International
(a propos de l'attentat du La Belle Club à Berlin, le 6 avril 1986)

THE WORK OF RACHID DATA














"... The work of Rachid Data is directly connected to his eclectic environment, which is also his main source of influence. Data has always been directed by the idea that the frontier between his artistic pratice and his deep self being had to be like a burning atom, in the same time without any concrete relation with its context but also a potentialy reason of the destruction of it.
Data is always walking into this dialectic and that is why the experience of joy he gaves to us as spectators couldn't be only expressed with feelings that we use to express in any other situation.
Data is unique and meeting his work for the first time can lead you to a place from where you don't come back as the one you used to be before ..."
