In parallel to documenta 14, Palais de Tokyo and Pavillon Neuflize OBC, the artist-in-residence programme of Palais de Tokyo, alongside with Foundation Fluxum/Flux Laboratory, present “Prec(ar)ious Collectives”.
This hybrid contemporary project is a collaboration between the six visual artists currently in residence at Pavillon Neuflize OBC and eight contemporary Greek choreographers. As part of the experimentation, the artists and the dancers define together a specific format for the public presentation in-between an art exhibition and a dance performance.
“Prec(ar)ious Collectives” questions the notion of community as a situation and not as a subject to illustrate. The ambition is to invent, the time of an experience of collective creation, a fictional “us” as a way of escaping the assigned identities. The works (installations, videos) of the artists in residence at the Pavillon are to be put into motion on a series of occasions by the dancers’ performances.
