Journée Paroles et Manoeuvres

In the spirit of exchange and reflection, Skol invites the public to participate in Journées Paroles et Manœuvres. A cross-disciplinary meeting of interventions, conferences, performances, and discussions, this event aims to inverse roles, to encourage collaboration between different types of expertise, and to support hybrid forms?of communication. Les Journées Paroles et Manœuvres is an opportunity to take time, together, through and across various forms and ideas.


Journée Paroles et Manoeuvres : Playdown, presents the work of Art-Act (Gaspard and Sandra Bébié-Valérian), a collective of visual artists, curators and theorists. First, the duo will host a conference reflective of their artistic practice, at the crossroads of art, the digital, hacking and activism, in order to stimulate critical thinking of the world through the reappropriation of technological issues.

Two interactive video installations by Art-Act will then be presented in the gallery (Uncanny Valley, Revolustar). Each installation, conceived from the structure of a video game, explores the paradoxical relationships of power and dependence which arise between the artificial and the living.

Interrupted by coffee breaks, appetizers and drinks, the event’s program will conclude with the musical performance by Le Fruit Vert, a malleable project composed of two musicians (Andrea-Jane Cornell and Marie-Douce St-Jacques) and one video artist (Sabrina Ratté). The trio performs dense sound and video atmospheres composed of hidden voices, noise, and profound spectacular landscapes.
