On September 21, during the 9th edition of AICA France Prize for Art Critics, SUZANNE was presented by the independent curator Léo Marin. An oral presentation inspired by the PechaKucha principle : 20 images each commented for 20 seconds for a total duration of 6 minutes 40 seconds. A performative format that applies to art criticism that offers the possibility for a large audience artists and works that have not yet receive the attention they deserve.

Léo Marin takes the gamble of presenting a group of performers, dancers, a multiple body in an exercice where artist generally choose one artist or sometimes a group of artists and artworks. It is also an opportunity for him to establish its own collaboration with SUZANNE over time while integrating it into the continuity of his favorite research subject: insularity.

Under the direction of Sylvia Varagne, the first edition of L’Appel du Large festival offered to thirty artists, including SUZANNE, new meeting spaces between the seafront, boards, Pompeian baths and public spaces.

It was also (the immense) chance, after a post-containment 2.0 period, to reinvest the public space and once again offer curious passers-by and a few tourists STATU, the company’s first creation, which does not had not been performed since June 2019 in Vilnius as part of the Vilnius Art Fair. In a context of a global pandemic which has limited the distribution and exchange opportunities for artists, meetings between the public and artists and artists were the sinews of war for this first edition of L’ Appel du Large.

“Silencieusement // DEVENIR// ” (“ Silently // BECOME // “ ) is the brand new podcast project by the artist and curator Sophie Monjaret. SUZANNE let herself get interviewed and answered Sophie’s questions.

In order to better understand the stakes of the art world of tomorrow, Sophie Monjaret launches a whole new project based on the search of the other. “ A sudden need fills me, an idea that fills the void. An obligation to meet the other. To move altogether in a world where we are told to isolate. A need to question the world I’m growing up in as an artist and curator”. A quest towards the other that takes the form of interviews turned into podcasts. In a context where the pandemic has forced a large number of actors from the living and contemporary art scene to silently create, imagine and rethink the world of tomorrow, “Silently // BECOME //”, Sophie Monjaret’s brand new project is conceived as different meeting spaces in times of health crisis. A 41 minute podcast dedicated to SUZANNE shows how a group of dancers and performers can continue to work together when we are not allowed to see or touch each other.
