May 18 & June 15, 2022 – Lost: in search of lost things
Modelled after the lost pet posters you see on the streets, the idea is to ask the residents of CENTRALE what they have lost and what they are willing to sacrifice to have it back.
Whether it’s a small animal, a gentle breeze or a beach towel, separation can sometimes be painful. But can knowing you’re wanted reassure the lost item, its owner?
Will our little distress calls find an echo within the triangle of Saint Catherine?
Tenderness and laughter guaranteed

June 1 & 29 (full), 2022 – Anatomy of an inert object
In order to have a better understanding of the objects that surround us and to ensure that we are able to relate to them better, we will study their anatomy.
Skeleton, organs, vital points, etc… From now on, objects will not hold any secrets for you!
The workshop is concluded with a massage initiation of the objects.
Techniques: drawing, writing, laughing

Artist’s bio
In his art, Samuel TRENQUIER portrays everyday life on a deserted island lost in the limbo of the Pacific Ocean. Constantly pouring over the notion of exoticism within the meaning of Victor Segalen’s definition, “this acute and immediate perception of an eternal incomprehensibility”, Samuel Trenquier goes off to find reasons to furnish his solitude and is of the opinion that he has every chance of seducing a bird by building her the most beautiful of gardens in order to prepare for receiving the Other.
