exhibition of Laurent Faulon and Delphine Reist
It is by noticing the railings adorning the ceilings of La Station that Laurent Faulon and Delphine Reist thought about the exhibition Flux Tendu. Made with works suspended to this metallic frame, a relic of the former slaughterhouse, it will bear witness to a variety of productions (in situ, decontextualized, mass produced, ephemeral sculptures,…), various formats normalizing contemporary art and in a more general way regulating our existence today.For the last twenty years approximately, Laurent Faulon and Delphine Reist have been developing separately an autonomous artistic work, and for a dozen years, they have been collaborating in the conception of residency and collective exhibitions projects. Although their artistic concerns, the aesthetics supporting them and the works thus produced are strictly individual, their approaches meet in the way they comprehend the working spaces and contexts they come across. They design installations or interventions in situ echoing the aesthetic and social characteristics of the place receiving them. The analysis of the specificities of a place constitutes the starting point of their approach.
This exhibition has received the support of the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
