Because words have no sens any more, only usages, Georges Cazenove has
decided to distribute only white tracts without any message, to stick
up only white posters, and to installe in differents european cities —
in a in a global public space which is more and more putted into
private hands, polluted by more and more logos and slogans, branding
and merchandizing operators — an installation made of white deckchairs,
white parasols, white duckboard, a newspapers display shelf and a
postcards display shelf... The installation is called "The White Beach
/ La plage blanche".
In the video "Whitout title", we can see the artist preaparing his installation and performing his action in the public space.
"The White Beach / La plage blanche" was presented in Strasbourg,
Annemasse, Marseille (France), Geneva (Switzerland), Thessaloniky
(Greece) and Varna (Bulgaria).
Le Forum Itinérant
Association of art diggers based in Strasbourg (France) since 1999,
supported among others by the Ministry of culture, the Regional
Direction of culture Alsace and the City of Strasbourg, the forum
itinérant is aiming to associate artists and other art diggers in order
to develop the visibility, the legibility and the intelligibility of
contemporary art practices in and out the network of artistic places.
To realize his purpose, the forum itinérant conceive and develop
artistic activities (art in the public space, video art, electronic
art, performances…), curatorial activities (artist run space hors
champ, festival Superformances, european curatorial program Prime Time,
Art Feeling…), critic activities (Revue Mouvement, Dernières Nouvelles
d’Alsace…) and editorial activities (conversations, passages, faire
passer, sans plomb…).
The artist space hors champ is run by Karine Vonna (artist
and independant curator, formed at the School of the Magasin / Centre
national d’art contemporain of Grenoble, International Curatorial
Training Program) and Georges Cazenove (artist and art critic). Also
thanks Claude Le Berre (artist and webmaster), Céline Trouillet
(artist), Catherine Gier (artist), Emmanuelle Rombach (architect),
Frédéric Luckel (professor), Nathalie Le Berre, Angélique Regnier and
