2010 // L’atelier du plateau fait son cirque

Scenography Jc Lanquetin // Video Jonathan Debrouwer // Opening 7th october 2010.

The ‘Atelier du plateau’ (Paris, directed by Mathieu Malgrange & Laetitia Zaepfel) stages every year, in a small former industrial space, a circus festival. Every year, they ask for an artist to design the space. The only option is a painting. A circus? I immediately think about this image. And how it questions what was a circus, not so long ago. Another reference for this project: ‘Le grand cirque d’Oklahoma emploie tout le monde et met chacun à sa place’. Kafka, l’Amérique.
