Two-voice tour, with Nicolas Heredia
Saturday 18.11.23, 4pm
To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the Frac Ile-de-France has invited director Nicolas Heredia to take a look at the collective exhibition Gunaikeîon, featuring works from the Frac’s collection and those of guest artists. It will be a question of conversations, narratives and personal stories.
Author, director, actor and set designer, Nicolas Heredia conceives and develops the artistic project of La Vaste Entreprise. Combining the performing, visual and live arts, his various projects highlight the sensory rather than the spectacular, and draw from encounters / personal stories / the vagaries of live performance / found objects – the material for a poetic style that is generally playful, often uncertain, if possible never definitively finished, sometimes to be completed by oneself – and in any case: shareable with the first person who comes along. In 2023, he created “La Fondation du Rien”, a hybrid device that allows everyone to sign up for a cancelled activity and create their own free time.
No reservation required
