The CAPC & Arc en Rêve, the architecture centre and the contemporary art museum have worked together to create the exhibition Insiders as part of the first edition of Evento, the Bordeaux cultural and urban biennale. Insiders and Evento are interrelated, both focusing on the theme of “the private and the collective”. Insiders brings together over eighty architects and collectives from a variety of backgrounds who have in common ways of overstepping the frontiers of their respective disciplines. Like the early folklorists, contemporary artists have explored ways of collecting a variety of cultural materials, while architects offer alternative approaches relating to new ways of appropriating the city and architecture itself. This selection is the result of a survey in the fields of art and architecture and focusing on the relationships and influences that link “high” culture to “popular” culture. Insiders responds to current world social and economic issues and models of global culture by exploring new and singular dynamics of exchange and organization that bear the potential for new collective values.
Prototype Site presented a usable concept for a multi-stage theatre, in the form of a usable single entity object. Prototype Site investigates the use of graffiti as a three-dimensional form of intervention in both domestic and public environments: DIY (Design-It-Yourself) versus mass market.
The space-object is produced using basic wood sections and packing materials which are then unified by rendering its surface with stickers. The sticker is design as a Fractal, a single component that when multiplied generates a graphic texture over the rendered surface.
