A Stroll Past the Sign

»A Stroll Past the Sign« is an exhibition initially conceived to foster exchanges and discussions among artists residing and working in both France and Germany. First initiated with the aim to create space for friendships, uniting researches and associations. We are happy to share and enhance these experiences with you on this occasion.

In its development and throughout the diverse exchanges we had, the exhibition has further evolved to explore the intricate and multiple relationships between the internal and the external, displaying what is revealed and what is concealed. It can be interpretated as a reflection on the poetic interplays between inscriptions, signs and fictions, which cohabit with us in our shared, public, and domestic spaces.

Here is a glimpse of what is awaiting you: one vast window sheet, dividing the space into an ambiguous and unbalanced quadrature of observers and participants, spiced up by an emptied Bugs Bunny figure both welcoming you from the inside and playfully beckoning you back outside.
