at Salon Mondial
27.11.2021 - 12.12.2021

The Canadian artist duo Gagnon-Forest (Mathieu Gagnon + Mathilde Forest), currently in residence at Atelier Mondial, is showing the exhibition "in limbo" in Salon Mondial parallel to Regionale 22. Opening is on 27 November at 7.30 pm, finissage on 12 December. In their latest project, Gagnon and Forest use photography and photogrammetry to take inventory of a series of unfinished concrete structures that appear ambiguous between construction site and ruined building. Inspired by these forms, which are reminiscent of monuments, the project addresses the question of the overproduction of built space by combining 2D and 3D representations of these architectural elements.

Atelier Mondial is an international scholarship programme that offers artists in the fields of visual arts, literature, fashion & textiles as well as dance & performing arts the opportunity to spend several months working in one of ten partner countries. Once a year, these 18scholarships are announced for application in the Tri-Regio, plus a travel scholarship for a free project. The studio scholarships consist of a contribution to the cost of living as well as free use of a studio with a flat or a studio on site.

2021/2022: Atelier Mondial, like many other art programmes, was unexpectedly hit by the pandemic and many artists had to cancel or interrupt their residency this year. However, our many years of exchange with destinations all over the world have strengthened our conviction that art is an important basis for communication between cultures, regions and practices - a basis that can give us impulses for the quality of flexibility, experimentation and provisionality so much needed in these times. It is against this background that the scholarships for 2022have been awarded again, subject to certain pandemic conditions. We would like to thank the partner institutions worldwide for their inspiring cooperation and the sponsorship for their support.
