From 15 November 2018 to 3 February 2019

Of links and exiles is a residency and exhibition project which invites several artists to reflect and experiment on the meaning of making or breaking bonds in our contemporary societies. This project aims to highlight different artistic approaches and the realities of bonding: territorial bonds, emotional bonds, intergenerational bonds of a collective memory or even bonds of objects…
