Fast Wood – Collectif 1/6

Fast Wood – Collectif 1/6
Monday April 24th, 2023 Nahil-Sarah Wehbé

Over the centuries, the evolution of societies and the expansion of the human race have led nature to be ordered and disfigured in order to make it inhabitable. But as Paul Robin writes in an essay published on the Anthélie website and devoted to Georges Perec’s Species of Spaces (1974) – particularly the paragraph “the uninhabitable” (chapter “Space”) – “The uninhabitable is what has been arranged. It is not nature that is hostile or inhospitable, it is the space ordered by man”. In fact, human beings have this need, habit, or even obsession, to appropriate the territory they occupy, to make every natural or disorderly space artificial and under their control, and to consume excessively.

To mirror this obsession, the 1/6 collective presents Fast Wood. As its name implies, it is a fast food concept located in the heart of the Hortillonnages, on “the educator’s island”. Composed of a wooden exoskeleton, the installation takes up the aesthetic criteria of different fast food chains present throughout the world. Added to this is a revised menu that draws its source from Picard culture, advertising posters featuring the restaurant, and a GPS point accessible on the Google Maps application, thus materializing the commerce.

The 1/6 collective enables the visitor to become aware of this state of affairs by intriguing and disturbing them, and above all by questioning them about this obsession. It reveals the impact of society and its culture on the environment in this natural, green, and protected place, for one season.

This brightly colored installation will disturb the gaze of visitors who will question, or even protest, seeing a fast food restaurant in a green space.

The artist

(Français) Collectif 1/6

(Français) Le collectif 1⁄6 est né en 2022 de l’association de six étudiants de troisième année d’arts plastiques de l’Université Picardie Jules Verne d’Amiens : Vanille Kliber, Clara Bauchy, Tom Lecointre, Christopher Cherquitte, spécialisés en sculpture installation ; Mathilde Bourienne, Nicolas Cousin, spécialisés en graphisme et en modélisation 3D. Ce jeune collectif exploite les différentes spécialités de ses membres afin de proposer des installations questionnant le monde et la société. La première œuvre d’1/6, FLUX, a été exposée à la Faculté des Arts : installation évolutive et immersive, elle révélait le témoignage d’un migrant ayant traversé la Méditerranée.
