What is “our ruins”? is a project of multidisciplinary collaboration between artists coordinated by the collective Les Ateliers du Vent (Rennes, France, members of ARTfactories/Autre(s)pARTs) in partnership with the KSA :K, Center for Contemporary Art (Chisinau Moldova). Alain Hélou, artistic director of the Les Ateliers du Vent, curates the project.
In this occasion, ARTfactories/Autre(s)pARTs proposed a discussion workshop in association with Les Ateliers du Vent, based on the theme : The transmission in the independent cultural centres the 5th & 6th of June 2014 at Les Ateliers du Vent, in Rennes - France.
The project is based on the principle of cooperation. It is not for every artist to produce artwork and then gather these works of art in an exhibition, but to bring together artists and work on the implementation of projects that involve collaboration with at least one other person. Besides, several works of art have a distinct participatory character.
From May, 21 to June, 8 2014, an exhibition have presented the works of art made by 26 French, Russian and Moldovan participants of our project. All these works have or will be produced exclusively in the framework of our project and reflect the artists’ personal vision of the question: what is «our ruins»?
