Lucas Grandin in the elementary school Jean Moulin, Rennes


7 February 2013 > 14 June 2013

La Criée has chosen the artist Lucas Grandin for his availability to develop a voluntary process of creation in an elementary school, resonating with his current research and the artistic program of the art centre. Indeed, La Criée will come in a cycle of European cooperation, questioning democracy and cross-cutting approaches, especially in terms of urban planning and architecture.

During 4 months, Lucas Grandin develop with children of the school Jean Moulin (Rennes, Villejean) a construction project and projection on the theme of "the ideal city".He will question the boundary between dream and reality, concrete space and projected space, creating a theater of shadows and light from materials collected, mixed sounds ... Students will be able to realize an architecture combining light , objects of recovery, low tech, cardboard, shadow puppets, video and sound machines.

This project aims to explore and experiment with different concepts presented in the work of Lucas Grandin: recovery, pooling individuals, sound, urban activism, flows.

The residence time will include several workshops: presentation time video works by Lucas Grandin performed in Rotterdam, Douala, Rennes, Sao Tome, the "discovery workshops" urban projects and their diversity in Africa and Europe , the intervention of professionals and stakeholders in planning classes, workshops, videos, drawings and production facilities, and a public presentation...

The residence is in connection with a project to build temporary artist studios on the island of Nantes, led by Lucas Grandin in collaboration with the artist and urban planner Kamiel Verschuren in Rotterdam, the collective R_, A Thousand Leaves, NAC and the foundation.

The project will be developed also in connection with school groups in the city of Douala, Cameroon, on the occasion of the invitation Lucas Grandin at the next triennial urban art "SOUTH 2013".
