CENTRALE for contemporary art
Place Sainte-Catherine 44
Building on simple and functional everyday objects, the Swiss artist and sound engineer Zimoun reinvents in his installations the distance between chaos and rhythm, silence and noise, the spontaneous and the planned. By ordering in an almost obsessional manner the most trivial objects (cardboard boxes, pieces of wood, cotton balls…), he creates seemingly simple sound structures which prove to be complex systems, virtually organic. Let yourself be mesmerized by Zimoun!
Dorothée Smith [FR] // C19H2802 (Agnès)

Place Sainte-Catherine 16
The multimedia artist and photographer born in Paris, Dorothée Smith, creates a hybrid work that explores constructions, deconstructions and identity mutations. Presented at the CENTRALE.lab, her ‘transdisciplinary video installation’ depicts the story of Agnès, a boy reborn as a girl after swallowing a synthetic substance. A wonderful work where grace emerges from disorder..
