The event is over
A Hungarian architect who settled in Paris in 1957, Yona Friedman developed a style with futuristic connotations going beyond artistic categories, shored up by the theory of spatial town planning and mobile architecture which became representative of her "realisable Utopias". For the last ten years the Chapuisat Brothers, a duo of Swiss artists, have been exploring work half-way between architecture and sculpture, which grafts onto the space like a proliferating structure: a temporary cell that visitors are invited to explore.
With the artists and Olivier Kaeser, co-director of the Swiss Cultural Centre in Paris/Around ideas of relationship and inheritance, "Link" invites two artists from different generations to confront their respective creative processes through the spoken word and image.
