*Join the artists in the space as they adapt and modify their works to the exhibition. // Rejoignez les artistes dans cet espace pendant qu'ils modifient et adaptent leurs œuvres à l'exposition.

Welcome to an ephemeral, modular space. Risque d’échec underlines the ongoing evolution of the artists’ process, research, and work. By transforming itself in the course a two week exhibition, the space begs the question of an artwork’s completion. The space puts forth a collective experiment, allows mistakes to happen, and encourages risk-taking in public. This playing court asks artists to put their work on the line, no longer in fixed conditions, resulting in a social, improvised project. What is on display here is not just the work nor the artist, rather, it is the artists’ ongoing relationship with their work, and the traces of their communal presence.

Bienvenue dans un espace éphémère et modulable. Risque d’échec souligne l’évolution constante du processus des artistes, de leurs recherches et de leurs œuvres. En se métamorphosant au cours des deux semaines d’exposition, le lieu qui vous est proposé questionne la finitude d’une œuvre d’art. Il met en avant l’expérimentation collective et laisse place au facteur d’erreur en encourageant une prise de risque publique. Ce terrain de jeu sollicite ainsi le dépassement de l’artiste vers une frontière instable, ou plus courante, et résultante d’un projet improvisé et social. L’art ici n’est pas seulement l’œuvre, ni l’artiste, mais leur cogitation et les traces de leur présence commune.
