inspiration ~ transpiration

groupshow curated by Le Syndicat Magnifique
February 2018
at MAC, Créteil (FR)

with Nils Alix-Tabeling, Rémy Brière, Gaëlle Choisne, Chloé Delarue, Dimension Émotionnelle, Quentin Euverte, Juliette Goiffon & Charles Beauté, Raphaël Moreira Gonçalves and Kévin Senant.

inspiration ~ transpiration intends, through its title, to situate the creative processes within the social and material environment of the artist, understood as its work ecosystem. The show addresses the condition within which young and emerging artists work : precarious conditions of production, collaborative endeavours, ever- shifting situations of exhibition. The exhibition aims to show the pendulum dynamics, from the collection and sourcing of raw materials and datas (inspiration), to its sweaty and singular precipitation into an agregated form (transpiration). The project was born of an invitation from a collective, (LA)HORDE to another, Le Syndicat Magnifique, underlying the importance of collective work for a new generation of cultural workers.
