As part of the exhibition Une exposition comme les autres by Aurélien Froment (from April 8 to June 12, 2011), the Bureau des publics team offers a specific artistic practice workshop to the students and children from Ivry.
Based on the work Forms of Nature, Forms of Knowledge, Forms of Beauty(2009-2011), which consists of an apparatus inviting to manipulate the Friedrich Froebel’s pedagogical games, the mediators offer a moment of experimentation and architectural discovery. The children are able to visit the kiosk designed by the architect Renée Gailhoustet in the Raspail street in Ivry and build free architectures from simple geometric form inside the kiosk and at the Crédac. A film is made for this occasion allowing to report the workshop.
Aurélien Froment (born in 1976, lives and works in Edinburgh, Scotland) graduated from the École régionale des Beaux-Arts de Nantes in 2000. He also studied at Manchester Metropolitan University (UK). His art work, which combines installation, video, photography and sculpture techniques, is set up around the narrative principles and the mise en abyme. Rebus and subterranean meanings are important to understand his work, which often refers to cinema, its imagination, its form, and its collective memory, sowing confusion between fiction and documentary. Aurélien Froment presents his solo exhibition Une exposition comme les autres at the Centre d’art contemporain d’Ivry - le Crédac in 2011.
