The exhibition project Konnexiones is meant to be an implicit parallel with the mechanics of the world. It is the cross-fertilization of ideas and techniques, influenced by knowledge and cultures, which have given place to a spontaneous production of collaborations.
Konnexiones was born in the studios of the cultural structure Motoco installed in an industrial wasteland of former DMC mills in Mulhouse - France. The Motoco project, initiated in 2013, now includes artists’ studios and a varied research office native to the three borders (France, Switzerland, Germany), and also benefits from an international affluence within the residences it welcomes. The post-industrial environment has a strong impact on artistic research. The place characterized by a geometric and rhythmic architecture is still synthesized by atypical materials of a century past, favoring the use of materials of industrial origin. The proximity of the artists presented at the exhibition is an evolution in this particular setting.
