Entre! - In Between / Come In!
Urban intervention, photo and text, 2013

Project with the inhabitants of an apartment building, for the programme Social Housing and Contemporary Art, organised by the 11th arrondissement city council, Paris, in partnership with the social housing company Élogie.

Edition of postcards, kakemono on the town hall facade, slideshow video and sentences created by the participants on the city information panels.
At the exhibition, the postcards were presented in a revolving stand, and stuck in the exhibition wall like the knives of a knife thrower. After the exhibition, the postcard spinner was installed permanently in the building’s entrance hall.

Thanks to Jean-Christophe Arcos, Danielle Choucroun, Nathalie Loiseau and Martine Oppermann, to Dupligraphic and the Imprimerie Champagnac, to Annabelle Santos and to all the participants. Photos J. G., Jason Karaïndros.

Entre!
Space is always a space between :
between two hands, between two beings, between neighbours,
between two walls, two apartments, between the inhabitants
and their area, between Paris and elsewhere, between one word
and another,
between me - “the intruder”, the invited artist -
and the Allée Verte hosts who all said to me “Come in!”

As Flaubert put it : “Le doigt de Dieu se fourre partout. - God has his finger in every pie.”
