La Station - Nice - France
From 02-09-2019 to 20-04-2019
Opening informations : opening Friday, february 8th, 6 PM
Since 2016, the D.R.A.C P.A.C.A has been helping La Station to set up temporary artist residences for visual artists. La Station chose to offer two residencies for a term of four months. For each of them, a grant of € 3500 is given to the artists, enabling them to ensure production, transport, travels and a per diem. A downtown housing is also allotted to them as well as a studio of a surface of 40 m2 at La Station.
The two recipients in 2018 were Pauline Brun in the spring and Rémi Groussin in the fall. This exhibition gives an account on the researches made during these residencies.
Sho-oter is the contraction of the French anglicism « shooter » — to shoot, to film — and of a pictogram — a pair of glasses; it sketches the encounter between the absurd performances of Pauline Brun and the seductive dysfunctional sculptures of Rémi Groussin.
