Aqua
05/2021
Pavillon Sicli, Geneva

AQUA was an exhibition showcasing works of the permanent collection of the François Schneider Foundation, as well as the second phase of Bref Alignement.

Bref Alignement is a 59km long performance that took place in the Swiss landscape on May 2nd, 2021, when 280 boats carefully aligned to materialize the invisible administrative Franco-Swiss border, strangely located in the center of Lake Geneva.


The second phase, inside the Sicli Pavilion, consisted of a re-enactment of the performance at a 1:2000 scale. The lake's silhouette was drawn on the concrete floor, and visitors were given a small sticker upon entrance, that they were free to place wherever they thought the border was situated.


Like the navigators confronted with the placement of their ships on this invisible line, the visitors engaged in a work of location, exploration, and translation of scale. The scale was precisely one of the primordial elements of the performance, a sail used in the way of a ready-made was there to trigger a reflection about it, by creating a direct relation to the body.


It allowed the visitors to project themselves in the extent of the performance realized by the sailors. These two moments worked in symbiosis and questioned the material representation of a concept with unfathomable dimensions.
