Exposición Des soleils

Des soleils encore verts Mains d’Œuvres, CAC Brétigny, Bétonsalon, DOC! with the Champs magnétiques collective

Des soleils encore verts is an exhibition in movement imagined by the Champs magnétiques collective, with work by nine recent graduates of the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts and the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. The title of the project, taken from a poem by Andrée Chedid, can be translated as Suns Still Green—it implies hope and new possibilities. The participating artists are united by a shared interest in what could be, whether in our world or in another. The exhibition offers potential forms of resistance, new spiritual horizons and alternative futures.

The exhibition is designed to adapt, transform and produce new forms of interaction with art. It makes use of short openings in the programming of its host venues, taking place in several acts with each occupation conceived as a fragment of a whole, growing out from previous iterations and anticipating what is yet to come. The exhibition initiates its own cartography as it takes root across multiple territories, allowing itself to be shaped by each venue.

The project’s first cycle unfolds in four spaces: Mains d’Œuvres, an independent venue that supports artist projects and citizens’ initiatives; CAC Brétigny, whose structure, marked by the theories of popular education and co-creation, functions as a collective space, each participating actively in the construction and identity of the project; Bétonsalon, an art and research centre whose collaborative approach invites the questioning of notions of hospitality and the commons; and finally DOC!, a space run by and for artists offering residence programmes and exhibitions.

This first cycle of exhibitions develops upon fertile ground upon which emerge artistic, curatorial and editorial practices in perpetual evolution. Champs magnétiques seeks the possibility of being together, creating together. With vagrancy at the root of its project, Champs magnétiques has no set course, preferring impulse and disorientation.
