I gradually decipher the text, 'I would like to speak ever so softly so that you would have to come up close to me, and I would speak in a tongue that would sound foreign to you, or maybe I would just speak in images and you would have nothing to decipher, because I would be there and that would be enough.' After a few minutes of silence and hesitation, as we sit in the vicinity of one another, we strike up a conversation."

    Since 2015, Marie Preston has been researching the history and function of local specialized preschool assistants (or ATSEM—agent territorial spécialisé des écoles maternelles). Vis-à-vis the community where CAC Brétigny is located and with the aim of initiating a local artistic experience, Preston invites anyone interested in pedagogy (pre-school and primary school levels) to reflect on the interdependence of the different actors accompanying the pupils and on the possible ensuing forms of cooperation.

    Presence revisited, Devora Neumark

    Performance

    “Over a period of eight weeks beginning in September of 1997, I sat on a three-legged wooden bench in various places around the city of Montreal crocheting non-stop. For five hours a day, I crocheted using two colours: fine yellow cotton thread marked the stitches I made in solitude, while purple traced my exchanges with the passersby who stopped to speak with me.” Twenty years later, Devora Neumark recreates “Présence” and adapts it to the specificities of the public spaces of Vitry-sur-Seine and Brétigny-sur-Orge.
    With the support of Au Ver à Soie.
