The working process of les actionnaires was strongly influenced by the health crisis, new forms of social distancing, proximity and demarcation. Under this scoop of external constraints, Zone arbitraire reacts to the daily confrontation with the unexpected appearance of objects such as adhesive tape and protective masks. Zone arbitraire revisits and reconsiders collective associations and our appreciation of public space and these new imposed elements of daily life. Artists go beyond their utilitarian relationships with objects to enter into an exchange of new possibilities.
The Topic LAB is a collective composition in which participants focus on a particular theme.
This process was carried out in a public space, which was empty due to health constraints to stay at home, to stop the spread of the COVID 19 virus and when all cultural institutions in Berlin were closed to the public. The choice of objects and materials is based on the daily situation and human reactions to the COVID 19 virus. The captured composition is presented publicly online in the form of a short video.
