@artvilnius is the biggest art fair in the Northeast Europe, taking place in the capital of Lithuania. It was established in 2009 as part of the Vilnius European capital of culture and is taking place since then. 30 May-2 June this year the fair was celebrating its tenth-year-anniversary with a #FocusFrance programme. Curated by Aurélie Faure (@katarinastella), it brought 11 French galleries, with rare exceptions mostly Parisian ones, presented the French group exhibition On the Edge, and a few performances by French artists and artists collectives, such as a group titled by a female name SUZANNE, scheduled at different times and locations throughout the duration of the fair.”

“When we arrived to the backside of the large Espace Topographie de l’Art in Marais, the 5 members of @groupesuzanne were rehearsing for a performance.
There was palpable sense of electricity in the room.
Quite electric was also our short dialogue. Everything is fresh and ever-changing for the young collective initiated in October 2017, but one could feel the determination of a clairvoyant; Inspired by the small gestures that accompany us every day they are IN to test some raw ideas about the body in an approach cross-pollinated by the various cultural, educational, professional background of the members. Maybe not evident yet in the work, they are also testing ways of collaboration in a fluid large group and modes of surpassing the practical difficulties of collective work in an art system geared towards the individual.
Look them up”
