An installation by Camille Blatrix

As part of the Fondation’s opening, Camille Blatrix has explored for one year a concealed space of the building that may be seen only if accompanied by a cultural mediator.
Located near the production workshop – where the piece was assembled – and at a distance from the exhibition space – where we would expect to find it, the young artist's semi-permanent installation echoes the Fondation’s technical functions. It was inspired by the geothermic wells and the network that irrigate the building at its heart: Camille Blatrix interprets these fluids as the generator of a continual flow that releases an unremitting energy.

Despite a smooth and glazed appearance and the aesthetics of standardized production that features them, Camille Blatrix's pieces seek to establish an emotional and poetic connection with the viewer, thus blowing the heat or the cold. These animated machines show the worrying condition of bodies in today's world. Inspired by advertising and film strategies that manipulate emotions, fears and fascinations, Camille Blatrix continually questions, admires and depreciates stereotypical images, as well as their impact on our imagination and feelings.

This installation may be seen only if accompanied by a cultural mediator.
