ANOUK VERVIERS - SPONTANEOUS SUPPORT
Jaser d'artJuly 1, 2016 - July 30, 2016
As part of its Rendez-vous Spontanés, DARE-DARE is pleased to welcome during the month of July the project Jaser d'art by the artist Anouk Verviers.
Every Friday in July between 12:00 and 16:00, you are invited to visit the artist and take a seat on the DARE-DARE site at the corner of Notre-Dame and Atwater streets.
During those meetings, the artist arrive at DARE-DARE site with her mobile installation to be deployed on the ground. She dismounts her cart and builds the furniture where she wants. She then explores the documentation center to choose a document that will serve as a starting point for the conversations that day.
With this project, the artist wishes to question the artist's relation to the viewer and to the institution through the elaboration of a reflection on relational art in the public space.
The artist will be there on the 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th of July 2016.
I believe in the power of dialogue in the pursuit of establishing a lasting mutual understanding. Listening, exchange and openness are the basis of a meaningful collective experience. I consider my role as an artist as that of a creator of contexts. I create situations where such exchanges can take place by focusing on the parameters that make up the physical and aesthetic space, as well as the intellectual and emotional space. Each project is an opportunity to vary these parameters to feed my thinking.
I build places, often mobile, that aim to aesthetically destabilize the participant to stimulate his.her openness and curiosity, while offering him.her comfort to stimulate an emotional availability. Working with wood, metal and ceramics, I attach great importance to the development of the objects that will constitute these places and spaces. Art is a laboratory that gives me the freedom to join communities and collaborate with people to rethink current models of living together.
