Description

In the Quatre-Chemins neighbourhood of Aubervilliers, Les Laboratoires has provided a workspace and research space for artists for some years now. In March 2001, the association’s chairman, choreographer François Verret, entrusted three people, Yvane Chapuis, François Piron, and Loïc Touzé, with the job of planning and constructing a new artistic project on this site. This project, planned to take place over 2002-2004, embodies the Laboratoires’ will to provide a place for experimenting, a space for research and reflection whose driving force is artists with their practices. Its implementation is being pursued, despite the temporary closure of the Laboratories for renovation and fitting out. It is built around four main lines of work that are complementary and share common links.
