Les RetournéeX, Ife Day
As part of PAC Festival 2023

Red stair, 2nd floor, Friche la Belle de Mai
41 rue Jobin, 13003 Marseille

Reservation complete

For the opening of the 2023 PAC festival, Ife Day offers the public a work in progress. Les RetournéeX is an acid and comic fable. In an almost suspended time called childhood, metamorphic beings, a vampire and a little being, meet and bond in order to empty the real. Ife Day invites us to an experience that attempts to transcribe the absurdity of language and symbols: to de-think the social inscriptions of bodies.

Salle Seita, Friche la Belle de Mai, 41 rue Jobin, 13003 Marseille
Registration on Parallèle's ticketing platform, professional invitations upon request:

ON VOUS VOIT is a rap.
ON VOUS VOIT is a dance.
ON VOUS VOIT is a poem.   

In the light of lived experiences, ON VOUS VOIT apprehends the gaze as a space of projection of domination and the sturdy dance as a way to reappropriate one's body and identity, in an emancipating and restorative logic.

Samir Laghouati-Rashwan is a graduate of the Beaux-Arts de Marseille - INSEAMM (2020). He currently runs Drift Space in Marseille, and is part of the Ateliers de la Ville de Marseille program curatorially led by Triangle-Astérides.

Artist talk Hugo Hopping
@ Atelier-Assemblée

Artist, Hugo Hopping will be speaking about the various creative and cultural intersections occurring in his practice, which connects two continental visions for cultural production. The artist has been responsible for elaborating various initiatives and organizations, where his artistic, design, writing, curatorial project could be seen as an interdisciplinary contextual practice. One sourced from his background in conceptual art, collaboration and other collectivized methodologies for artistic and knowledge sharing. On this evening, we will get a chance to enter into the various projects that inform each other and that the artist has been elaborating between Los Angeles, Copenhagen, and Marseille. All of which are part of his artistic research to help build non-ideal institutions for art in general.

Music performance and readings as part of the exhibition Sur pierres brûlantes

History is always fragmented into many facets, as many as the number of humans who pass through it. With the inhabitants, we have never ceased to put the intimate and collective stories into perspective, thus helping to reinforce the feeling of social cohesion.
Our work is modelled as a response to the neo-liberal system of our Western societies (which seek to demonstrate that everyone lives in an immeasurable reality). Thus, we try to think of the individual as a citizen and to think in our work about the notion of society as an inclusive and intersectorial project.

To go in search of the ghost of the Bataillon de la Belle de Mai is to extract its essence, to root the question of this Marseille of all and for all under the pavement of this poorest district in France, it’s creating the concrete from what we were (we, the inhabitants of this area) to tell the story of who we are. It’s making the descendants of intra-European immigrants with their extra-European counterparts talk to each others. It is to unsand the collective memory in order to contribute to the emergence of the common. The artistic work composed and written is just as important to us as the processes that mark it out. From 2018 to 2020 “?B2Mai à l’assaut du ciel” has been developed through a series of artistic workshops?: writing - choral singing - urban dance - theatre - historical research - journalism - videos - wall newspapers, including more than 300 children from the hypercentre and and from the Belle de Mai neighbourhood. If the ghost of the Bataillon de la Belle de Mai still haunts the streets and dead-ends of this district, what shapes, what sounds or associations are its guardians?? Taking advantage of the silence of the confinement, this ghost haunts the world of tomorrow.

For the exhibition "Sur pierres brûlantes", the artist Arthur Eskenazi invites the Organon Art Cie to present the project "Belle de Mai à l’assaut du ciel", conducted over a period of two years with the children and teenagers of the Belle de Mai neighbourhood in Marseille.

DJ set

As part of ON AIR 2019

Saturday 24 August, 2019
7:00–9:00 P.M.

Friche la Belle de Mai
41 rue Jobin
13003 Marseille

Triangle France - Astérides invites Wivoc aka MELODYMELODY (Brazil) for a special dj set as part of ON AIR festival on the rooftop of Friche la Belle de Mai.

About the artist

A Serbian friend once described his experiences clubbing during NATO's bombing in Belgrade as a necessary alienation to forget his lack of future. The decade starts with pinches of tropicalism, as if there was an utopian possibility that things were getting better, - perhaps the hopes of the new world still resist 500 years of colonization - more feminine, more queer, more colorful. Global Southern rhythms found space in Western's dance floor. But the transition went fast, the new right is taking over the Western Hemisphere and now we eat pills and dance once again to alienating beats in some dark corner.

WiVOC's (aka MelodyMelody aka Caetano) music selection reflects on the political sphere playing the raw sounds of the global peripheries in an attempt to free the hips. FREE YOUR ASS AND YOU MIND MIGHT FOLLOW.

Young Girl Reading Group (YGRG) is an ongoing project initiated in 2013 by Dorota Gaw?da and Egle Kulbokaite, artists currently in residency at Triangle France - Astérides. In the frame of their residency, the artistes purpose a reading group of the newest book by Silvia Federici "Witches, Witch-hunting and Women". The reading group will be followed by a discussion between participants.

YGRG investigates the act of reading as an intimate experience, holding the potentiality to become public performance through the “outlouding” of words. YGRG is a sonar-social architecture of shared curiosity and synchronicity.

All the participants will read for the group. English only.

[in French]

Je voudrais être elle avant que l'exposition se termine. Je vais l'enlever pendant trois jours. Je la ramènerai ensuite. Je la déplacerai sur le palier derrière les portes et je me mettrai à sa place. Je m’allongerai au pied du mur qu'elle occupe. Je vais me mettre dans sa peau, la posséder autant qu'elle me possède. Je ferai exactement tout ce qu'elle fait dans l'exposition. J’espère que les qui me regarderont, ressentiront aussi quelque chose avec moi. Chaque jour, je maintiendrai cette situation jusqu'à ce que j’arrête d’y croire.

Je vais retourner ma position d'artiste, me mettre à la place de ma sculpture, et de là, j’essaierai d’avoir conscience de l’exposition entière et de résonner avec les œuvres.

Il s’agit aussi de majorer mes sensations, en remplaçant par moi-même ce que je produis, pour mon seul plaisir, comme une reconversion qui prolongerait ce qui existe déjà, et le stimulerait à nouveau.

41 rue Jobin - 13003 Marseille

Curators Marie de Gaulejac and Céline Kopp invite three Marseille based artists to develop a performative visit within the exhibition Vos désirs sont les nôtres.

Arthur Eskenazi

Saturday 1st September

Free entrance to the exhibitions on the 1st September only.

In the frame of the public program of our exhibition Vos désirs sont les nôtres, Arthur Eskenazi presents a performance in four acts developped especially for the occasion. A performed visit in which body frictions won't be avoided.

The work of Arthur Eskenazi is multiple and protean, not attaching itself to any particular discipline but considering them all as territories with particular topographies that we would have to cross.
Performance, dance, theater, scenography, but also video, installation, drawing, writing or painting represent like a great planisphere with porous and moving boundaries depending on the body that passes through them, the specific situations which it makes the experience and which can only be transmitted by telling the story. But which one?

Doriane Souilhol

Saturday 21 July 2018

Free entrance to the exhibitions from 17:00 on the 21st July.

Wall (Sorbonne?), anonym, 6 x 6 cm, National Library of France, Paris.

Doriane Souilhol proposes a subjective journey infiltrating the exhibition Vos désirs sont les nôtres. In the form of a perfomative visit, desire will here be understood as a twisting matter and its mechanisms as gesture or experience of failure.

The artist addresses the question: what is desire? How are we crossed by desire? Through a psycho-analytico-poetic approach, Doriane Souilhol proposes to survey the uses of the word desire in the language, what is woven between body and speech, what are the (obscure) objects of desire and why Jacques Lacan was doing knots...

With voices and words by Jacques Lacan, Gilles Deleuze , Jacques Derrida, Jean-Luc Nancy, Véronique Botte-Hallée, Aurélie William Levaux, RD Laing, Paul. B. Preciado, l’esprit du clan, Sonic Youth, 68's walls...

Doriane Souilhol’s artistic research focuses on the notion of desire, and more specifically addresses issues of emptiness, of creative proces and image. Doriane develops a reflexive work on art. This results in collaborations and exchanges with other artists or art professionals that take the shape of curatorial projects, interviews and writings.
Doriane Souilhol (b. 1981) lives and works in Marseille. She graduated from the Ecole d’arts appliqués Duperré in Paris. Recent exhibitions include Pan noir, galerie Deux, Marseille (2017); à la recherche de l’objet petit a, INACT festival, Strasbourg (2017); Fail better V, Alma art space, Paris (2017); Objet photographique, Galerie Immix, Paris (2016); Fail better II, théâtre de Vanves gallery (2015); Fail better I, galerie Vol de nuits, Marseille (2014).

Encounters and performances, a program conceived by Lotte Arndt

Graphic design: Roxanne Maillet

In the backstage areas of global trade ec-static subjectivities decompose into sweating skins. The air is heavy with far traveled smells, overwhelming, asphyxiating. The state stands stiff, stamps forms, wiggles bars and barriers, raises banners, and proclaims in strong voice willful redemption, but the sound is too loud. The film may be from last year and everybody gets bored. With surprising certitude, the remote corners of the abject selves walk in; they are vested in hairy dresses. As on a sign given to them, they gather in a crowd, accelerate the gestures of their toxic habits, until they loose heir contours and morph into liquid flows, leaving behind only prosthetic parts of their luxuriously shining bodies. From beyond, trembling wills without Visa cross borders as theft. They move closely tied to each other, while, nearby, she sits motionless on her own and smokes another hundred smuggled cigarettes. She has abandoned to wait long ago. She rather takes the backdoor. She’d rather not…. Here, passing is a mode of survival and dream comes as a kleptomaniac.

The public program Tampered Emotions – Lust for Dust accompanies the exhibition Vos désirs sont les nôtres. On 29 & 30, June the participating artists are invited for presentations, performances, and exchange with writers and theorists around desire and violence, and the affections of the intimate by the mutilations of life. This program conceived by Lotte Arndt will be closed on 1, July, 2018, by a book release by artist Liv Schulman, an evening of projections and a performative lecture by the artist Roee Rosen, event organized in collaboration with FIDMarseille and the [MAC] Museum of Contemporary Art of the City of Marseille at Mucem. In the beginning of September 2018, during the fair Art-o-rama a performance will close the program.

In collaboration with Rond-Point Projects

Wednesday, November 16th
From 07:00 to 08:00 P.M
4e floor, Friche la Belle de Mai
41 rue Jobin 13003

Artist Matthew McQuillan will give a presentation from ongoing research into the contemporary values and conceptions placed upon the child and childhood, in the global north. Using examples from films, literature and theory, his presentation will consider the child/childhood as a social construct, the role of the family, and various political viewpoints; to explore our current emphasis on the child as an investment and a symbol of hope.

Working across written text, performance and installation, Mcquillan's practice combines found material and personal experience to focus on the overlooked; the nature of rubbish on a Los Angeles Street, a gesture of dismissal in a botched youtube selfie or a character's attachment to a missing, cherished pet, for example. These details harbour ambiguous, and sometimes conflicting affects, such as care, anxiety, inertia and hysteria which the artist looks to question, in relation to personal and wider social relations. His practice often draws on situations and scenarios of suspended agency; in which a subject's ability to act is obstructed or blurred. In recent years, his work has widened to include organising exhibitions and thematic events, as another means to explore and test ideas.

Matthew McQuillan is a London-based artist, currently in residence at Triangle Marseille. Born 1982, (Bristol, UK) he graduated with an MFA from Goldsmiths University in 2010. Recent exhibitions / events include 'Rough House', at The glue Factory (part of Glasgow International); 'A Public Resource', Cubitt (London, UK); 'Bottom Natures', GCP (London, UK); 'Concerning the Bodyguard', The Tetley, (Leeds, UK); 'Soft Evidence', Legion TV (London, UK) and 'Winter Escape', The Common House, (London, UK).


During his residency at Triangle France, Davide Stucchi has produced two sculptures with soap of Marseille. The Munich gallery Deborah Schamoni present these two sculptures in a solo show at ART-O-RAMA 2016.

ART-O-RAMA 2016.
From August 25th to août September 11th 2016
Friche la Belle de Mai

These sculptures are in casts, scale 1:1 of the bodies of the artist, Davide Stucchi, and his boyfriend while swimming-sleeping, made of soap and then 'washed into the sea' so that the facial features of the figures get 'dispersed'. The work is created as a purely representative intent, but that intent is immediately denied. Indeed, the denial takes the form of a ceremony. The intimacy of the couple is so apparently shared — actually it remains in the pair — and is further enhanced by the ceremony of the birth of the work.

For more information on Davide Stucchi, it's here

Performance into two parts carried out as part of exhibition Wicked Problem

I - Thursday March 17th, 7:00 p.m.
Atelier de l'artiste, Friche la Belle de Mai

II – Tuesday April 19th , 7:30 p.m.
La Gad : Etoile Run Space, Eglise St Théodore

The Scénarios d’occupations evolve like a score for three voices, with assigned roles. Like a cannon, the narrative grid is first played by a performer, then negotiated by a second, and finally by a third. The interventions examine the influence of the entertainment lobbies on local cultures in which these fictions feed. Each participant evolves in connection with the space in which he performs: a workshop, an exhibition space, a church.


Join us tomorrow at FIAC, on Marcelle Alix's booth (1.G11-Grand Palais) for the book launch of Liz Magor "The Blue One Comes in Black" from 5 P.M. to 8 P.M. in the presence of the artist (Book signing at 5P.M.)

Published in partnership with Art Gallery of Ontario - AGO and Gershon Iskowitz Foundation; Le Cartel; Centre d’art contemporain d’Ivry - le Crédac; Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver and with the support of Catriona Jeffries Gallery, Vancouver; Marcelle Alix, Paris and Susan Hobbs Gallery, Toronto

“This is not a picture to show how things are. It’s a proposal as to how we connect to what matters and how it comes to matter. It’s one of the vital intuitions Liz Magor could be understood to advance in her work: bodies, souls, memories and matter interconnect in peculiar ways and activating this connection may be more strikingly simple than many would believe”.
Jan Verwoert, 2015

This book offers a new contribution to the thinking around Magor's long standing practice by gathering newly commissioned critical texts and creative writing, as well as texts by the artist herself, some of which were previously unpublished. This book not only highlights important works from throughout Magor's career but also present her latest work for the first time in a publication form.

Liz Magor (b. 1948, Canada) lives and works in Vancouver, Canada. Practicing for over 40 years, Magor has had numerous solo exhibitions including Surrender, Iskowitz Award, Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto (2015); Six Ways to Sunday #06, Peep-Hole, Milan (2015); Liz Magor: A Thousand Quarrels, Presentation House Gallery, Vancouver (2014); No Fear, No Shame, No Confusion, Triangle France, Marseille (2013); I is being This, Catriona Jeffries, Vancouver (2012); The Mouth and other storage facilities, Henry Art Gallery, Seattle; Simon Fraser University Gallery, Vancouver (2008). Magor exhibited at documenta 8, Kassel, Germany (1987) and represented Canada at the Venice Biennale (1984). Her forthcoming solo exhibitions include Marcelle Alix Gallery, Paris (2016), Crédac, Centre d'art contemporain d'Ivry, Paris (2016), Musée d'Art Contemporain de Montréal (2016), and Glasgow Sculpture Studios as part of Glasgow International (2016).

In the occasion of the inauguration of the 2015 Printemps de l'Art Contemporain in Marseille and in collaboration with les Mécènes du Sud, Triangle France et Rond-Point Projects are pleased to present the first projection of PACACOSMOS, a film by Pierre Fisher & Jusin Meekel.

PACACOSMOS is a film attempting to show the links between the banal and the cosmos within the overall territory of the French Region PACA (Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur). This is a fiction, created in collaboration with the region's inhabitants, whose script is being written while the images are captured, following adventures and encounters, and using the fictional potential of reality. The film functions like a road movie where the main character - a mysterious other - wanders around with poetry, looking for traces of the cosmos on earth. The hero, in the midst of an unusual quest, leaves his destiny to the stroke of luck and the stars.

Pierre Fisher & Justin Meekel were artists in residency at Triangle France for the conception and production of this project in 2014.

Best known as a pioneer of 1940's American experimental cinema, Maya Deren produce series of short films inspired by surrealism and psychology – like Cocteau. In 1962, a year after her death, Jonas Mekas honour her work by producing in collaboration with other filmmakers her melting dream, The Film-Makers' Cooperative.

Between 1947 and 1951, Maya Deren spent significant periods of time in Haiti. The footage she made of Voodoo rituals was left unedited on her death and only assembled later as a film Divine Horsemen : The Living Gods of Haiti 1947-51. The commentary added to the footage is composed of extracts from the book of the same title Deren published in 1953.

Conceived as a “film-poem”, Maya Deren's film reveals the ongoing merging of art and ethnography which was one of the legacies of Surrealism. It travel in the Voodoo's religion between dance and possession with the sounds of drums - a religion based upon West African beliefs and practices, combined with aspects of Roman Catholicism. The film captures the rituals of Rada, Petro and Congo cults, whose devotees commune with the cosmic powers through invocations — ritual offerings, song and dance. The Vodoun pantheon of deities, or loa are introduced as living gods, actually taking possession of their devotees.

This film experience and the reason why the editing remain unfinished results of the artist's change of approach during the film production:
"The disposition of the objects related to my original Haitian project–evidence that this book was written not because I had so intended but in spite of my intentions–is to me, the most eloquent tribute to the irrefutable reality and impact of Voudoun mythology. I had begun as an artist, as one who would manipulate the elements of a reality into a work of art in the image of my creative integrity; I end by recording, as humbly and accurately as I can, the logics of a reality which had forced me to recognize its integrity, and to abandon my manipulations."
-Maya Deren, “Authors’s Preface” in Divine Horsemen: The Living Gods of Haiti (1953)

Inscribed within research initiated in Brazil in 2014 (JA.CA, Belo Horizonte) and pursued throughout 2015 within the framework of Session #5 Entrée Principale, résidence de recherche et de production curatoriale et critique à Marseille, this project reunites artists, poets, critics and translators in a program of exhibitions and events to explore the notion of translation within the context of artistic practice and exhibition making.

CHEW also marks the inauguration of Rond Point Projects Room, laboratory-exhibition space of Rond Point Projects.

For many years now, Rond Pont Projects and Triangle France have established a strong partnership for their residencies programs. Kevin Gallagher is currently artist in residency at Triangle France, a context that provided the production and allowed the research for this project.

As part of the program of exhibitions and events celebrating Triangle France's 20th birthday, Clémence Seilles was commissioned to create an ambitious new work which eventually gave its title to the group exhibition MOUCHARABIEH. As a continuation of her logic of collaboration, she invites the collective "Take me On" for the exhibition's late night opening of Friday 27 March. Delivered between a DJ set and sound performance, Long Hair Love Call is a contemporary interpretation of the siren’s myth as a post-feminist figure. Female empowerment, seduction and music; this sound collage proposes a narrative as festive as it is compelling.

TMO : Leïla Arenou, Oona Linke and Laure Jaffuel.
This event was created in collaboration with Annee Grøtte Viken and Naïmé Perrette.

This performance is part of "EXPONENTIELLE": late night opening and free entrance each last sunday of the month at La Friche.

Responding to Lili Reynaud Dewar's lecture « Mon épidémie » ( held during the inauguration of Triangle France's 20th anniversary program, where she described her experience of the emergence of AIDS and her position towards the fear of contamination that was symptomatic of the 1990s), curator Dorothée Dupuis will reflect on her commitments and the research she initiated while director of Triangle France from 2007 to 2012). She will talk about her experience of confronting and linking feminist theories and visual arts and about her vision of feminism as a committed way of thinking towards an active and inclusive exercise of our responsibilities as citizens and subjects. A vision that is impossible to separate from an understanding of the politics of power and their unequal distribution.

Questions will be asked such as : "What do we mean by Feminism? Where does it come from? How is it still useful today? What does it mean to be a feminist visual artist? How can we articulate a multicultural vision of Feminism? What is essentialist or constructivist Feminism?". Potential answers and discussion will consider projects and exhibitions such as « Les Formes Féminines » (Triangle France 2009); « Kathy Acker : The Office / Rulin' n' Freakin' » (Triangle France 2011); the magazine Petunia, as well as references linked with visual arts in general, pop culture, history, theory and geopolitics.

The lecture will be followed by a Q&A session.
