Stemming from her ‘Seven Hills’ research project, which will be presented at the 2nd Kampala Biennale in 2016, in this event recording (December 2015) curator-in-residence Élise Atangana discusses the topic of mobilities (movement, representation, practice), followed by a performance by French artist Julien Creuzet (55:37).
Space is activated by the daily movements of individuals. This interaction or situation necessarily implies a change occurring in the present, on both the individual and the environment. How does the presence of a body (as a means of movement and micro-movement – habits, gestures, rhythm related to emotions), affect a space, whether physical or virtual, or a situation of the subject in space?
Julien Creuzet’s work has been largely influenced by his time living in Martinique, a crossroads of the African, European and Indian civilisations, with an interest in playing with the clichés and peculiarities of Creole history. His approach integrates animal and plant environments and includes references to animistic worship, the Christian religion and French identity.
