La Piscine is a collective project that gathers different artistic practices and works addressed to a single spectator. Similarly to an actual swimming pool which holds the mixing water together, La Piscine holds the space for such practices to mix and transform each other so that each encounter is a unique experience and a work in itself. Going from a walk with closed eyes, to a conversation, to a bath, to a nap touched by objects and sounds, to an audioguide, to cards, and beverages, a single spectator and one of the artists will tune to each other to draw a singular path into Les Bains du Centre – at the heart of the Marolles – an experience that questions our usual regime of attention.
