New publications

The Documents d'artistes Network is developing a critical support program consisting of initiating meetings between artists and authors to encourage the writing of original texts on contemporary artistic approaches.

This year, thanks to the support of the Fondation de l'Olivier*, three new collaborations have been implemented by DDA-AuRA. We are pleased to unveil the resulting new publications:
— Simon Feydieu seen by Amélie Lucas-Gary
— Olivier Nottellet seen by Eugénie Zély
— Émilie Perotto seen by Balqis Tandjaoui

The Fondation de l'Olivier thus allows us to strengthen our commitment to visibility and knowledge of the work of artist-authors.

* Sheltered by the Bullukian Foundation, the Fondation de l'Olivier's main mission is solidarity and support for artistic expression in the Lyon region.

Proposal by Lélia Martin-Lirot

This journey brings together ephemeral works, with precarious conditions of existence, sometimes even doomed to disappearance. Whether they are in situ or performative interventions, tangible objects, tenuous or more monumental gestures, these evolutionary works provide, in their production processes or materials, both their own conditions of appearance and erasure, exhaustion, or even their potential destruction. Using recycling procedures and savings of means, the artists here cause transitory situations and produce unstable forms, in equilibrium suspended in the environment that receives them. By challenging the notions of collection and conservation, they assume a form of impermanence of the work, even if they risk its invisibility.
