Tripple Dribble

Julia Borderie in collaboration with Simon Zaborski

Within the content of La Métropolitaine, echoing to the Olympic and Paralympic Games of Paris 2024, Julie Borderie continues Tripple Dribble, a multiform plastic work mixing arts and sports, which she initiates in 2015 in Montreal.

Since 2018, the artist collaborated with basketball players from l’Union Sportive d’Ivry (Ivry’s Sportive Union) and l’Entente Sportive de Vitry (Vitry’s Sportive Agreement). With them, and with the collaboration of the artists Cécile Bouffar and Simon Zaborski, she imagines sculptures made depending on the shooting ranges, the desires or each player’s identity, which she conceives like tools to disturb and reevaluate the functioning of the game.

The Credac accompanies the artist in the production of the new series of sculptures, adjustable and that comes apart, which sows the sport area of obstacles modifying the rules of the game and the architecture of the pitch.

A film realized on the occasion of this exhibition, scenarised with Eloïse Le Gallo, Simon Zaborski, and the players, shows how the sculptures first lived as constraints by the athletes now finally convoluted and re-appropriated by them to develop new strategies.

To increase their action on the territory, the Credac and the MAC VAL co-build a program of events reuniting arts and sport. In june, two public performance games are organized in Ivry and Vitry with the basketball players. The sculptures and the film will then be seen at the MAC VAL from July the 21st to September the 22nd.
