Reading circle For the next four years, DARE-DARE and SenseLab have decided to combine their strengths and encourage the recurrence of sporadic encounters that will take the form of a reading circle, spontaneous forums and micro-events; to pollinate ideas and perspectives and to generate thought together.

CLAIRE MOEDER Interweaving imagination and collective memory, Claire Moeder composes the stories of 24 inventoried artworks, indices of a sliding heritage and an underground history, all revisited through creative writing. It mixes concrete presence and fictional reinterpretations of the works, determined by the traces left on the sites or their absence.

GIORGIA VOLPE For her participative project, she chose to install a patio swing on the site of DARE-DARE. This emblematic object of popular culture becomes here a friendly platform of investigation on dialogue and intersubjectivity. Throughout this installation in Saint-Henri, this patio swing will be perpetually transformed and will undergo multiple mutations before returning to the backyard in the Villeray district, where it comes from.

Each of these actions will be repeated seven times a day in the same spot during the week.

PHIL ALLARD Following our thematic call for applications, the artist PhiIippe Allard proposes Freiner la chute, a monumental ephemeral work. This work, conceived specifically for a call for proposals launched by the Sud-Ouest district, works in a line approaching land art. Through this strong and unequivocal artistic gesture, Freiner la chute creates a direct link with the invasive problem of the emerald ash borer.

GUILLAUME LA BRIE The starting point of the artwork is to locate urban furniture elements that are damaged in order to perform «repairs» on them. This operation initiates an artistic gesture where the repairing partly dictates the choice of shapes, scales and materials. The objective is to position my sculptures as prostheses replacing the missing or broken parts of selected objects.

MARION LESSARD From one word and its definition, Marion Lessard forms the poetical anagram of another word and its definition, which then take the place of the official ones, and so on, indefinitely, in a long chain of subversion. The aim is both poetic and playful: to insert within the Reference some Irreverence, to agitate the means of meaning. At the end of this extensive project, a whole new dictionary will materialize, which will yet be the same (understood as the sum of its letters).

SYLVAINE CHASSAY The artist brings together people from all backgrounds who want to share their dreams in a small group and live a common experience. Dreams, wishes, fantasies, ambitions, any form of dream is welcome!

CÉLINE HUYGHEBAERT My lists also track the ordinary. But an invisible ordinary. They give a density to things that leave no trace.

JOURNÉE D'ÉTUDE 2017 It is a tradition at DARE-DARE to hold a study day periodically. This moment of collective reflection is the perfect opportunity to examine our mandate in order to clarify its specificity, its objectives and, where appropriate, to review / refine / formulate new and relevant lines of research.
