Winner of the call for projects launched at the end of 2022, for a residence and two exhibitions in 2023 within the new space of the FMACTHE Relaxation Collective (created by Gabrielle Boder, Tadeo Kohan and Camille Regli) explores the municipal collection of contemporary art like a living archive.
What stories can be born from a collection of contemporary art whose history spans nearly 70 years of commissions and acquisitions?
The TEASER II exhibition: Staging
After their first exhibition”TEASER I: Indexes & Scripts“, which questioned the documentary and functional potential of the collection, the collective extends its research on the collections through the theatrical storytelling. imagined as a performative space to activate, the exhibition “TEASER II” thus turns into a theater stage, the public finding themselves on the stage, in a reversal between the object looked at and looking at. An exhibition thought of as a dramatic space-time made of curtains, spotlights, slides and bleachers.
The selection of works underlines the ambiguous nature of their status: they alternately become accessories, characters, decorations or even spectators. Works chosen for their potential for imagination, fiction and narration. The opportunity to discover these works which each with their individual story together tell a common story suitable for thinking about the present.
