LE VILLAGE HOODOO

Monumental installation

Conception

The Chapuisat brothers

Known for their ad hoc installations at the edges of sculpture, structure and architecture, The Chapuisat brothers often work in group settings. Their installations, sometimes habitable, transform space and often encourage spectators to participate actively by having them take on the role of explorers. These structures conjure up dreams, fears or childhood experiences and affirm a convergence of art and life. For Mondes Possibles, the artists were commissioned to design a purpose-built installation on the grand stage of Nanterre-Amandiers, where they can work on their first scenic project, in coproduction with the Centre culturel suisse. Inspired by the fairy chimneys of Cappadocia, gigantic wood structures will occupy the theater’s stage for nearly two months, calling on visitors to gaze at or even explore them from inside. This Hoodoo Village will also march to the beat of the various events that will be hosted in it throughout the festival.
