On the occasion of documenta 14, Palais de Tokyo and Pavillon Neuflize OBC, the artist-in-residence programme of Palais de Tokyo, alongside with Foundation Fluxum/Flux Laboratory, present “Prec(ar)ious Collectives”.
The project is a creative collaboration that deals with both art and dance. Six visual artists – currently in residence at Pavillon Neuflize OBC – are working with eight contemporary Greek choreographers (Markella Manoliadi, Aris Papadopoulos, Joanna Toumpakari, Stylianos Tsatsos, Yiannis Tsigkris, Alexandros Vardaxoglou, Andi Xhuma, Christos Xyrafakis), defining together a specific format for the public presentation in-between an art exhibition and a dance performance.
“Prec(ar)ious Collectives” questions the notion of community as a situation and not as a subject to illustrate. The ambition is to invent, the time of an experience of collective creation, a fictional “us” as a way of escaping the assigned identities. The works (installations, videos) of the artists in residence at the Pavillon are to be put into motion on a series of occasions by the dancers’ performances.
April 6-9: from 2 to 10 p.m., a daily performance at 9 p.m.
April 10-12: from 2 to 8 p.m.
