The six

For the exhibition François Villon Coeur à Vif, Curated by Georgia René-Worms designed within the frame of event Été Indien (Indian Summer) at the François Villon’s school estate in Paris.

« Villon had spent all his summer to Villonate, exhausted by all his Villoneries, he fell dry, in the water under a mangrove. In his right hand, a notebook saying François Villon Bleeding Heart, now floated on the surface of the water, containing in it all the memories of these travelling months as a cheerful lad and of melancholia.” Each of the artists taking part in the show François Villon, coeur à vif (François Villon, bleeding heart)has been invited to heighten awareness on artistic orientations during their work time to the 4th from the school. Through a combination of talks and workshops around the ideas of conception, of exhibition and artworks production, the goal of the project aimed at providing each time a few group of pupils a specific almost individual artistic experience they can feel proud and the bearers of, the transmitters of a story of an exhibition shown in their own appropriated establishment. The exhibition François Villon, coeur à vif works as a seasonal memory, the start of a new school year’s stroll, where each artist as in an open book, conceives the fantasy of a place, of a surface, a coma in space and time, which only common ground is the school François Villon, coeur à vif as journey crystallized still in the Block F.
