About this exposition

2016 – 2018 by weS.A.N.K.* Research Group: Vincent Roumagnac and Emmanuelle Chiappone-Piriou in collaboration with guests artists and architects The weS.A.N.K. research project emerged from director-researcher Vincent Roumagnac’s dialogue with architect- researcher Emmanuelle Chiappone-Piriou. It surfaced at the confluence of Roumagnac's doctoral research on “Deepening the Stage” and Chiappone-Piriou's research on proto-architecture in relation to art and computation. Together they have designed and implemented a two-year experimental project with and around the question: "How to prototype the stage of the future?". Via five collaborative sessions, in Tokyo, Paris, Helsinki, Barcelona and Daegu, together with artists and architects invited locally, they carried out the performative design and assembling of those prototypes. From general themes – including theatre and architecture, stage and time ecology, big data and post-industrial landscapes, dystopian narratives and daily rituals, networks, climate, memory, energy and affect... – the spontaneous conceptualization and manufacture of prototypes sought to explore contemporary bio/techno-sensitive and geographical conditions and, from those diverse perspectives, to coalesce physical and informational objects with a scenic dimension. weS.A.N.K. Deep Stage As... is the final staging of the whole research project. Through a double mise-en-scène - an installation and an exposition on the Research Catalogue - it invites spectators to enter this twofold speculative landscape and to take part, through the experience of the shared quantity, in the emergence of alternative common scenic imaginaries. *weS.A.N.K. is for we Speculative Architectures of Neganthroposcenic Kronotopias
