The exhibition Tendency and Fact, appropriating a phrasing of Andre Leroi-Gourhan, is dedicated to the interplay of city and prototype. As expressions of tendency and fact, city and prototype yield an understanding of architecture as device, constituted by both the material and the immaterial, the built and the non-built, the human and non-human. These relations are explored through architecture's visible and invisible effects, eliciting a reflection on the entanglement of energy, material, and our modes of their perception.
Recent projects from the office as well as from the research studio at EPFL will establish a constellation that question the performativity of the built environment, its effects on us which we commonly consider not to be us. The exhibition is conceived as an attempt to find a new sensitivity of how we perceive and apprehend architecture and energy through an interplay of city and prototype, tendency and fact.
The original exhibition Baukunst: Performance & Performativity was shown at the Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels in 2019 and in the Solo Galerie in Paris in 2020. In Paris and Lisbon, the presentation of exhibition was initiated by Wallonia Brussels Architecture in collaboration with the Architecture cell of Wallonia-Brussels Federation.
