París, Francia

This intervention at Place Charles de Monselet in the 19th arrondissement of Paris belongs to the art residency program Bien-Venue, carried out by Le CentQuatre cultural center.

The objective is to develop public and participatory art and cultural programs in the 19th arrondissement, a decentralized district with less priority for the administration.

We write the word “Rencontre” (meeting) because it represents squares as elements of social cohesion and reflects a neighborhood whose main characteristic is its socio-cultural diversity.

Besides, the unique temporal context in which we executed the work strengthens the chosen word. We traveled to Paris amidst a global pandemic, with rigorous health controls which did not allow us to make the participatory process. As a result, only a few neighbors and students collaborated, bringing out the social need for working together to overcome these situations.
