A spatial Intervention for FAGOR.
An experience; what more could it be?

Harmony, rhythm, composition, repetition, structure… Since space is the experience of relationship between things in our perception and time is the experience of relationship between events in our thoughts; spatial design should feel like music.

Provoking a spontaneous dance between point, line and surface is wished upon.

The intervention relates to what is while framing new potentials to relate to.

Accommodating; providing a meaningful context for others to settle. Becoming spacious is being generous.

Indoor urbanism is key. Structured while permeable, a playful organizing. Re-articulating space by adding new layers. A variety of gestures expresses a new spatial hierarchy; with each gesture its proper logic and language. Scaffolding, wooden walls, containers and textile. And art, great art relates to the new given.

Fagor is a city; fragile and monumental. A polycentric, open and vivid discovery. Dérive! You are free to drift; to wander in wonder and enjoy your stay! "MANIFESTO OF FRAGILITY is conceived and curated by Sam Bardaouil & Till Fellrath (ArtReoriented, directors of Hamburger Bahnhof).

Manifesto of fragility is structured along two distinct axes that function as complimentary conduits for the Biennale’s consideration of fragility. A vertical, temporal line will deliver more than 100 historical artworks and objects spanning two millennia on loan from several diverse collections in Lyon and abroad. A horizontal, geographical line carries the contributions of more than 80 contemporary artists from 39 countries engaging with the topic of fragility in a wide range of artistic practices.

This horizontal line includes works of Mohamad Abdouni, Gabriel Abrantes, Amina Agueznay, Remie Akl, Julio Anaya Cabanding, Giulia Andreani, Mali Arun, Dana Awartani, Clemens Behr, Nina Beier, Ailbhe Ní Bhriain, Lucile Boiron, Phoebe Boswell, Sarah Brahim, Leyla Cárdenas, Julian Charrière, Jean Claracq, Clément Cogitore, Nicolas Daubanes, Jose Dávila, Buck Ellison, Eva Fàbregas, Mohammed Al Faraj, Philipp Fleischmann, Léo Fourdrinier, Chafa Ghaddar, Olivier Goethals, Pedro Gómez-Egaña, Marta Górnicka, Nicki Green, Joana Hadjitomas & Khalil Joreige, Klára Hosnedlová, Nadia Kaabi-Linke, Néstor Jiménez, Annika Kahrs, Özgür Kar, Mohammed Kazem, kennedy+swan, Michelle & Noel Keserwany, Tarik Kiswanson, Nadine Labaki and Khaled Mouzanar, Hashel Al Lamki, Richard Learoyd, Hannah Levy, Randa Maroufi, Lucy McRae, Jesse Mockrin, Filwa Nazer, Eva Nielsen, Toyin Ojih Odutola, Hans Op de Beeck, Organon Art Cie, Daniel Otero Torres, Abdullah Al Othman, Daniel De Paula, Aurélie Pétrel, Sarah del Pino, Joanna Piotrowska, Christina Quarles, Omar Rajeh and Mia Habis, Erin M.
