« DAY 2 »
« Day 2 » consists of collective experiences in the streets of Paris. Created by Agathe Simon, these experiences question the limits between visible and invisible, group and individual, as well as action and nonaction. They are inspired by anthropologist Edward T. Hall and are drawn from certain collective streams found in the animal world.
How to live freedom, now? By subtly subverting everyday situations, these experiences provide an opportunity to reinvent the connection with the self and the others within the public space: “Walking in Paris as a Unique Person”, “Simply Breathing”, “Observing, Noting, and Restoring to Passers-by”.
I lived a fascinating experience, rich in sensations. It enabled me
to grasp the concept of group as never before. It was a true pleasure
to share these moments with such benevolent group of people.
I had new impressions of the city, as though
places, which I thought I knew, revealed themselves.
Guy Debord and the Situationists’ drifts came to my mind.
I loved to experience our ability to bond in a shared experience
of self-discovery while giving meaning and relationship
to an impersonally collective space.
