En attendant > Collectif En attendant, 2020

A fictitious individual folds up and locks himself up: a wooden wall surrounds his habitat. How does he live? It would be enough to look over the wall to realize it. The work questions the absurdity or wisdom of the lonely reaction, when a society wonders about its collapse. The end of oil, climate migration, the crisis of intensive agriculture, security anxiety, the global pandemic; so many fears to explain the gesture.

The artist

Collective En attendant

Third year students at the Faculty of Arts of Amiens, incorporated in a collective, Bryan Alexandre, Solène Aveline, Pierre Ecrepont and Maelle Virevialle offer therefore for the first time a work in a professional context. As visual artists, they invest an island of Hortillonnages with an imposing sculptural installation, symbol of a poetic and conceptual commitment which questions our society, not without omitting a touch of humor.
