RELATIVES [‘sʌbstəns] – Acte 2

RELATIVES [‘sʌbstəns] – Acte 2 is the sequel to an exhibition that brought together 16 young artists in Nice in October of last year and is part of a wider project concerned with creation in situ. In the first phase of this project, art works were specifically designed for the old fashioned Villa Carmeline space. These works hovered between devotion to the existing atmosphere of the space, adaptation, infiltration, modification, transformation and/or confrontation. The aim of this exhibition was to take over the exhibition space, its history, its appearance, its architecture and its environment.

Artmandat Association has organized the second phase of this project for summer 2011. The curators of this exhibition, entitled Relatives, have invited young artists from the Côte d’Azur to work in a renovated former tannery in Barjols (now an exhibition space) and to use this space as their subject and medium. Here, the artists will exhibit their works in a new context, with technical and visual constraints. The architectural features of the site are a unique challenge, since the exhibition space is notably composed of 3 troglodyte caves.

Artists : Benjamin Blaquart, Jean-Baptiste Ganne, Sophie Graniou, Chourouk Hriech, Benjamin Hugard, Nicolas Muller.
