In collaboration with the city of Ivry and with the sponsorship of SODES, the lessor of a commercial space in the Jeanne Hachette mall, Crédac is setting up a temporary artist residency in a former florist’s store in the heart of downtown Ivry.
This action, entitled Art, Fleur et Nature by guest artist Corentin Canesson, is also a new form of access to contemporary creation for the public and passers-by who do not necessarily make the trip to Crédac and who can see the artist in action in his daily life.
This support to a young artist, who has exhibited at Crédac in 2017 (Retrospective My Eye), allows a follow-up and development of his work with access to a room acting as a studio and the possibility to experiment with new artistic devices in collaboration with other artists.
On this occasion, Corentin Canesson wished to invite the painter Damien Le Dévédec to intervene at his side on a daily basis for the realization of drawings and paintings with four hands.
This regular production transforms the studio space into a moving exhibition space. Their plastic practice is echoed by their involvement in the music group The Night He Came Home (TNHCH), for which Corentin Canesson invited the young American artist Hilary Galbreaith to make a video as a music clip. The room and the window occupied by the artists become, for the duration of the shooting, a performance hall open to a shopping mall.
The originality of the space - place of production and display - with the installation of a stage facing the shop window allows to experiment new devices for each of the artists.
Following their meeting during the exhibition La vie des tables at Crédac, Corentin Canesson and the artist Flora Bouteille (in temporary residence at Crédac) imagined a performance time for the passerbys in front of the window. Corentin Canesson produced paintings as artistic documentation of this performance.
The whole of the productions carried out during the month of June is presented to the public invited to penetrate in this room on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 June. The exchange and the meeting between the artists and the public ends this period of creation opened on the city.
