On the occasion of the 2nd edition of the Prix des ateliers de la Ville de Marseille, Anne-Sophie Turion will present a work in collaboration with Jeanne Moynot.

“At this spot, on 9th August 2016, a red Honda sat parked for a few minutes. From its open windows came ‘Born to be Wiiiiild’.” This strange tale is one of thirty anecdotal statements that, in the summer of 2016, Anne-Sophie Turion placed on the commemorative plaques in a Canadian tourist town. It’s a series of improbable, incongruous memorials which epitomise the artist’s approach. An “orchestration of the real”, as she defines it, consisting of performative works fashioned from objects, gestures, words and situations which, once dispersed into everyday life, produce multiple glitches and disconnects: ‘augmented realities’ which displace or overlap ordinary situations from our day-to-day lives. These interventions engender a poetic shock, nourishing the onlookers’ conversations and reactions – whether intentional or not – while carefully eschewing an easy or unambiguous interpretation.
