Hydrangea is a continuously evaporating world in which narratives dissolve, leak, fold in on themselves and loop. Asking, as individuals are siloed online, can rifts in reality ever be reconciled? Is history a form of science fiction? Are narrators ever reliable? Hydrangea was created in the search for a form to merge fiction, poetry, and musical experience. Its narrative is influenced by technical instructions, lectures, and whispered conversations, in which slippage and floating focus creates new meanings caught between what is spoken and what is heard: “Find the false illusion and make it real, and then you’re stuck with it”.

La Manutention

Launched in fall 2017, La Manutention is a residency program dedicated to performing artists. Holly Childs & Gediminas Zygus are invited in residence for one month. The artists meet the public once per week in the spaces of the Palais de Tokyo. These performative evenings allow the public to discover their world and those of their guests, while offering the opportunity to follow the evolution of their work.
