Formes souterraines – une géométrie organique
As part of a Itinéraire découverte (discovery itinerary) project entitled Formes souterraines - une géométrie organique (underground forms - an organic geometry), the artist Julien Pastor accompanied a class from the Albert Einstein elementary school.
In this space designed by Jean Renaudie (1925-1981), the architect in chief in charge of the renovation of Ivry’s city center (1925-1981) Julien Pastor guided the students around an in situ and contextual project, whose interior layout was thought out with children and parents. Between design and architecture, the students were led to produce forms that inhabited their daily lives.
The work of Julien Pastor (born in 1977, lives and works in Paris) comes from a sensitive experience of his own environment. Constructions, drawings, collages and photographs constitute a corpus of research that goes beyond the specific territory from which it originates. From fortuitous encounters with objects, architectures or events, Julien Pastor associates the imaginations that stir his imagination, forming his practice. In touch with the history of art, philosophy or science, these conceptual and formal assemblages attempt to share an approach to the world where spaces (physical and imaginary) interpenetrate, thus revealing the complexity of the interactions between nature and culture.
