residency Art&Territory

Embassy of Foreign Artist, Genève

"The Origin of the World", as an entrail in levitation, invites to tilt the gaze towards what lies under our feet. It highlights the relationship to the subsoil and the geological origin of minerality.

Installed next to a tower construction site, it questions the way generic buildings are built, without consideration for whats tooks millions and millions of years to appear.

Choreography with a thousand dancers. Precise, energetic, tireless dance. The decor changes, the gestures are repeated, tirelessly.

Until exhaustion - of the natural resources.

Shooted during the first part of the residency art&territory, while we aimed to discover the producers of the materials we use for our buildings, this videos shows the ballet of the machines of all the construction chain.

Instead of focusing on the negatives symptoms, acupuncture stimulates positives key points of the body, in order to restore a circulation of vital energy between them. In a way, Slavutych is the body, and the workshop explores and stimulates its key points.

After having explored the city through a maximum of differents actions -  mind mapping, interview, drawings, gathering, automatics writings, body feelings - and having shared daily discussions, clouds of words, and debates, the participants get their own imagination free and created utopian futures for Slavutych. The narrative were translated into several micro-interventions scattered in the city. At the end the whole process was showed throught a global exhibition in Polyklinika, and everyone was invited to circulate between the micro-interventions, as if they were the vital energy between the key points of Acupuncture.

Similar to a cutting line, Languette highlights the breaks in the natural geological mechanisms. By underlining human interventions, it questions the artificialization of nature to answer anthropic needs (moving, eating, producing energy, etc.) and the resulting impacts: sedimentation, plant development, displacement beaches, etc.

"It is not given to every man to take a bath of multitude; enjoying a crowd is an art; and only he can relish a debauch of vitality at the expense of the human species, on whom, in his cradle, a fairy has bestowed the love of masks and masquerading, the hate of home, and the passion for roaming."

 

"The crowds", Charles Beaudelaire, Le Spleen de Paris

 

Before entering the installation, the public is invited to put on clothes with bluish tones. Once inside, a long shot photograph transcribes the movement of its wanderings under the form of a blurry blur enveloping the space. The public has become one of the essential components of the photography: it is subject, even matter.
This fuzzy material envelops the body of the person lying on the ground, which appears more clearly since it did not move during the taking. This person finds himself “drowned” in this vagueness, in this crowd. All that remains is the buoy, not submerged, surfing on this breaking wave of people.

multimedia installation in an industrial wasteland

Noise of vinegar bottles chocking. Shadows of ghosts passing through the walls. Visions of the inside of the building transmitted from cameras sliding on railways.

The industrial wasteland of Vinaigreries Dessaux, transformed into a utopian and wonderful garden, offers residents one last walk before its inevitable rehabilitation. This installation follows a reflection on how we can position ourselves facing the renovation of such an emblematic building of a city, and more broadly industrial wasteland. Through fictional means, we wanted to open the debate and initiate a reflection on what these spaces are and could be.

performative installation

A staging of a spatial sequencing marked with paper suspensions. By playing with notions of field and out of visual field, the idea is that each element of space is a dramaturgical component, not a decorative one. These caches, taking turns the functions of walls, seating, clothing... delimiting the voids, in and with the bodies moving to the rhythm of the poem by Ghérasim Luca, "Prendre Corps". Thus activated, the space presents itself as a real protagonist of performance.

Re:built a link in between the industrial part of the city of Rijeka, Croatia, and its city center.

The bridge was built in order to draw a new connection with one of the main pedestrian streets. Its rope structure and knots are directly inspired by the city's marine context.
