Formations

Formations investigates the impact of movement, structures, and patterns in every day life by dynamically combining diverse artists, designers, and architects to explore the amalgamation of architecture and performance with time-based performative actions.

NON-COMPETITIVE FESTIVAL
Curated by D. Chase Angier & Serge von Arx

Artists and architects from around the world bring distinct approaches in their fields and the curiosity to enter into experimental performative conversations in the urban context to present unique contributions that will become part of a larger co-creation. Each project focuses on clearly defined patterns and their arbitrary but symbiotic interweaving in the public space. The works intersect at random moments with the open environment, the public, the weather, and other selected works performed near and passing through another. The resulting disruptions and frictions will expand the individual contributions as they become part of a continuous whole unfolding across the vast square in front of the Industrial Palace.
