Especially interested in the way space constructs gender and identities.

Fascinated by Swiss post-modern design and mineral patterns.
Collector of shiny raincoats and other weird things like PEZ distributors and Harry Potter Legos.

Catalogue non exhaustif d'altérations performatives
06/2021
Lausanne / CH
Claire Logoz

Catalogue non-exhaustif d'altérations performatives is a research for a less (hetero)normative and more inclusive domestic space focusing on the typical Lausanne typology of the urban villa. The project disrupts this normative typology with a series of performative alterations.

These alterations propose an architecture rich in literary and constructed references. They aim to include different actors, different families, different sexualities, different ways of living. They seek to include domesticity in public space, and public space in domesticity, by blurring boundaries. They seek to include the city, to include the context.

The alterations borrow the language of the site in construction, or rather, in de-construction. Walls, slabs and facades are pierced in Matta-Clarkian gestures. The normative domestic space is disrupted and deconstructed, while new choreographies emerge.The domestic space, a site of constructions, is now also in transformation. The vocabulary of the stage and backstage, with its curtains and metal structures, is also used, presenting the performativity of the interventions as intentional.

The alterations induce behaviors and choreographies, but also agency. They constitute a new subversive language. Like words, they function and make sense on their own, but can also be superimposed to create an alternative poetry.
