Beginnings are so beautiful [Les Lundis du Pavillon] Projections et performances23/02/2015
Each year, le Pavillon Neuflize OBC,
research lab of the Palais de Tokyo, hosts six international artists in a residency in Paris. 2015 will see the beginning of a programme of public sessions to take place on one Monday of each month. Projections, performance, conferences, concerts, etc.: each presentation will propose a different format and come up with its own apparatus for provoking discussion, the sharing of experiences, critical perspectives, sensations. The events are also intended to offer a more informal setting in which all the foreign artists in residence may meet and discuss with one another. The Lundis du Pavillon will be an attempt to thus bring together the different tempos of artistic experimentation and festivity.
For its first event on February 23rd the Pavillon will present a programme based on the notion of community, fundamental as this is to the residency. From Jonathan Martin’s War Whoop to Musique au chronomètre pour 5 batteurs by Nicolas Fenouillat, its different moments will be a way to interrogate this first get-together in the mode of a sort of heterogeneous telescoping. As they resonate with one another, the works and texts will bring into perspective the ephemeral group that will form itself in the span of an evening at the Point Perché.
– Projections : War Whoop by Jonathan Martin and Dying Livng Woman by Camille Henrot
– Reading of texts by Sylvain Jacques, Thierry de Peretti and Zoé Schellenberg
