Inventaires #3

Gilles Debrun and Pauline de La Boulaye, in collaboration with the artistic collective Habitant·e·s des images

Patio Museo de La Rioja – Concéntrico 08

 

Selected for the first time by public choice, 45 exemplary constructions are examined in the exhibition and book INVENTORIES #3, covering individual and group-housing, workspaces, social facilities and public spaces. 8 of these constructions are exhibited here. Also discussed are 45 actions aimed at improving life in urban and rural landscapes. This is set in the context of contemporary issues and illustrates the work made by those with concern for the inclusion of both experts and users, environment, economy of means, and social housing.

This exhibition and book is the fruit of a unique approach devised by curators Gilles Debrun and Pauline de La Boulaye, in collaboration with the artistic collective Habitant·e·s des images. This included setting up camp with caravans in three separate stopovers in Wallonia, involving discussions with residents and local players, site visits with architects, and extensive public debates with all those concerned.

With its many discussion-points and visuals, this book and this exhibition make solid proposals for those involved in public and private works as well as everybody else who has concerns for the environment.
