Over the summer of 2020, artistic practices everywhere, mine included, were unexpectedly incubated. I explored the accompanying slowness by crawling under an exceptionally iridescent rock, la roche, and had the chance to embody the tectonic rhythms of geodesic tapestries created by artistic duo Sarah Wendt and Pascal Dufaux. This March at Tangente, the collaboration underwent another metamorphosis, and I with it.

Tickets and information

Sarah and Pascal’s Quelque part dans l’inachevé is an installation pollinated by performance, and turned art film, in collaboration with videographer Nina Vroemen. The sculptures and sounds of the installation are imaginative and intensely sensory: they feel fully committed to curiosity. Moving with and through them, I found myself navigating a landscape that was constantly liquifying and crystallizing my physical references, as if passing through honeyed time.

I hope you’ll dive into it with us!
