Video: La Ville Molle

Atelier Raum Architects shared this video of one of their recent projects, an installation for a contemporary art exhibition in France. Accompanied by original music from the french band Mansfield Tya, La Ville Molle was co-produced by the Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Art de Bourges, the FRAC Centre and implemented with the collaboration of the city of Bourges and the Council district downtown. Follow the break for drawings, photographs, and a video showing the installation of the exhibition.

La Ville Molle is a art piece created during the Raum’s residency at The Box gallery, in the Bourges’ National Higher School of Art. It questions the harshness of the city, the ground’s capacity to change, to bring a singular use and create situations. The piece is an implant, slipped beneath the ground, which processes and modifies our relation to this, our relationship with the city.
