Stéphane Déplan, a Grenoble citizen exiled in Brussels for several years now, regroups his activities under the name of Life as Art as Attitude.
He practices a way of making art, through protocol and accumulation. His everyday actions and projects are thought and activated over a long period of time – perhaps over a lifespan – marking a personal routine. The collection process, object identification, research, discovery, composition, separation and organization form a set of gestures with no other purpose but to maintain the artistic process.
With A.Ohannessian, L.Monod, S.Sauzedde, C.Laurelli, P.Courtin, F.Muxart, Jeanet, S.Lapalu, J.Tezam, W.van Tassel, F.Marcelly, B.Constantin
Sometimes a crow or a raven, in order to crack open a nut, will stop at a red light, put it on the road and, once the light turns green, expect cars to drive over the nut, leaving its content exposed. The context in which this bird lives, influences its ways of doing things, so to speak, opens possibilities and creates challenges.Idoine is the will to share a curiosity and an appetite for modes of operation, conditions for its guests’ surfacing of tools and internal logic.Idoine is led by Jérémy Glâtre, Eléonore Pano-Zavaroni and Pascale Riou, in collaboration with guests and occasional fellow travelers.
