We created this association in January 2016 with the aim of creating different work shops and multicultural exchanges art events.
We will develop our research in order to work together, improving our knowledge and individual practices.
From A to B is a project that will be part of an exhibition that will take place for the first time at the gallery Alliance française in Quito, Ecuador. The project will be presented in a later exhibition in France at the Alliance Française of Montpellier.
The project have a time frame from the moment we arrive to the residence of the artist Yolanda Cardenas, in Quito. During our stay in the house of the artist we will develop different workshops and link with people of the neighborhood.
The exhibition is thought like a bridge from France to Ecuador by water or air... Like tracing a line from a point to another. The meetings will enable us to nourish an already started reflection. The travel is an
Ideas will conceptualized in France and then realized in equator.
We thought of the second life of the second life of the art works : they will be exchanged, given, recycled, will be integrated into public spaces or in natural environnement, according to their various characteristics.

RETURNS EXHIBITION PROJECT IN FRANCE
In the futur, we will organized a exhibition in France that will help us to have an other approach of what we lived and created in Equador.
This new approach will takes consideration the idea that we can't bring any of our art works.
That involves the fact that we will translate our works in a other way : transforming sculptures in video or photos for exemple.
The principal goal of this exhibition is the question of context.
We will film all the different parts of creation in the residence. That will be the occasion to share and transmit our experience of work and creation in another country, and the link that we developed with art community and residents of Quito
