Sense of place, place for sense
TRAVERSE VIDEO 2015
18th edition – March 2015 in Toulouse

The artwork taken into consideration in connection or even interaction with the environment, is thought up as a part of this particular place. In this way, artists confront their art with the place, artwork is structured by the place, is thought to fit the place.

So the place is not that empty case to be filled recklessly, but it is an element to be taken into account to get the “be – artwork”.
The purpose is not to erase artwork since its resistance to space allows the artwork to exist. The more it wakes up a space to open to other possibilities… the more interrelationship can be modulated or cause counterpoint .

Physical inclusion in the place reawakens senses differently.

The inclusion in the place reawakens approach location differently.
