FIAC Grand Palais — Secteur générale
Galeries supérieures #1.H06

Past: October 19 → 22, 2017



For its sixth participation in FIAC, Gallery Jérôme Poggi proposes an intergenerational dialogue between Yona Friedman (born in 1923 in Budapest, living and working in Paris) and Larissa Fassler (French-Canadian, born in 1975 in Vancouver, living and working in Berlin). Using the title of a famous Slide Show by Yona Friedman, whose original drawings will be exceptionally exhibited for the first time at FIAC, the exhibition highlights the interstices building up the urban space beyond the architectures delimiting it and through the uses made of it by its inhabitants.

Yona Friedman has been defending for fifty years an architectural and urban concept based on a logic of use and mobility above all, going so far as to design institutions without buildings or architectures without walls. e stand will feature several historical models of Yona Friedman’s work, reflecting this innovative thinking of architecture and public space, as well as original drawings of his famous Slide Shows.

In regard, great drawings by Larissa Fassler will be also on show. Fassler has been mapping public squares around the world for several years now (Place de la Concorde in Paris, Taksim in Istanbul, La Rampa in Havana), showing not only the architecture that surrounds them, but the very life that animates them, embodying the social body through an interlude of trajectories and anecdotes.
