Etoiles partielles

Nefeli papadimouli le credac ivry 12 1 grid Nefeli Papadimouli — Le Crédac, Ivry Radical, généreux, expérimental et richement documenté, le travail de Nefeli Papadimouli explore l'histoire pour configurer des espaces peuplés d'éléments à activer. Le Crédac d'Ivry accueille une installation inédite de l'artiste, lauréate en 2022 du Prix Matsutani et nommée à la Bourse Révélations Emerige, Etoiles partielles.

For the second time, Crédac is partnering with the Bourse Révélations Emerige to support a solo exhibition by one of the nominated artists.

Performance and participatory action in public space are central to Nefeli Papadimouli’s practice. Inspired by phenomenology, proxemics, feminism and contemporary political theories, the artist attempts to reveal through a proto-architectural approach that spatial configurations of distance are the essential element of social balance.

In the continuity of his recent works, Étoiles partielles is an installation to be activated paying homage to the utopian architectures of the 1970s in the city of Ivry-sur-Seine. The suspended textile structure in room 3 recalls the layout of the Étoiles d’Ivry (Stars of Ivry) by Renée Gailhoustet and Jean Renaudie, and oscillates between a plan and a cut state. Non-activated — “on strike”, according to the artist — the sculpture is waiting for the bodies that will come to inhabit it. For the Nuit Blanche 2023, a performance takes place in the architecture of downtown Ivry, highlighting its fragmented common spaces, its accumulations of open and accessible spaces on the hillside, which have opened up new ways of inhabiting cities collectively.
