Eszter Salamon’s work revolves around choreography employed as a means of navigating between different medias. Since 2015, the artist has been developing The Valeska Gert Monuments, a series of performative works in relation to the life and work of the German avantgarde artist Valeska Gert ; long-forgotten in dance and art history. Study for the Valeska Gert Pavilion is the latest chapter of this series, developed with eleven young dance artists from the CNSMD Lyon. The work builds on the experimental, critical and punk spirit of Valeska Gert, by creating a living archive which could offset – through citation, commentary, and fiction – the absence of historical documents. Study for the Valeska Gert Pavilion proposes undoing the usual separation of spaces and temporalities. By bringing a daily practice into the public space of an exhibition, the possibility of a new relational space opens up, creating an occasion to learn and perform as well as to exchange through various encounters with the visitors at the Fagor Factories.
