The Transvector

Date: 2018
Medium: Installation – Polystyrene, wood, printed images on paper, vinyl

For Le centre ne peut tenir, Andrés Jaque and his agency Office for Political Innovation turn the Fondation’s ground floor into an active site for the exhibition’s public programme.

In line with the building’s ethos of modularity, Jaque imagines a flexible environment that will morph throughout the exhibition’s three months to accommodate talks, panel discussions, readings, performances, and book launches. The installation is thus understood as a space to welcome diverse types of mobility, perception, and activity. Acting as an arena to test decentred configurations, The Transvector fosters possibilities to assemble and dissemble its own structure, to encourage alternate forms of interactions.

Conceived as a lively meeting point, it will also welcome the Fondation’s risograph printer that will publish throughout the summer the exhibition’s ever-evolving catalogue.
