is an exhibition of a new genre that intends to make a residency period, as well as a phase of production and exchange between artists, the heart of an artistic project, thereby reversing the time, roles and habitual dynamic of a museum exhibition. Storytelling is conceived as a process of continual production and a new way of thinking about the relationship between the spectator, artist and the museum. For example, the inauguration takes place at the end of the exhibition.

The principle of the exquisite corpse associated with the surrealists serves as the inspiration and pretext to challenging the principles of mounting an exhibition, presenting the work of artists and by means of its transmission, the performance and modes of narration, its approach and perhaps even its appropriation by the public.

Seven young artists (Sara Bichão, Chourouk Hriech, Celsian Langlois, Violaine Lochu, Lou Masduraud & Antoine Bellini, Hannelore Van Dijck) will be invited as part of a short residency to develop a project with the curatorial team, bearing in mind the work of the previously invited artist, in order to invest the spaces of the macLYON over a period ranging from one to three weeks. The exhibition will begin when the first intervention takes place based on an invitation to reflect upon vibration, sound waves and composition.

Offering visitors an opportunity to experience an exhibition in an alternative fashion and to follow its progressive construction and evolution, the public will be able to observe each artist working in the spaces of the museum and to discover the behind-the-scenes work that constitutes an exhibition, either in situ or via social media.

This exhibition devoted to young creation seeks to challenge traditional codes in terms of cultural mediation and to renew the notion of a shared experience with the public. It is also a partition composed by several artists.
