Trials and Errors I: Atelier subversif

Parts of the installation: Explosives, electric and electronic parts, mobile phones
Variable dimensions and various arrangements

Jerry Frantz’s Atelier subversif is a chamber furnished with baroque furniture, tools and explosives. This is a space where both the ideas of anarchists and bomb planters and the ideas of artists are born and brought to fruition. A chamber of horrors – or a space that allows an empathetic approach to these marginal figures of society who are often the object of resentment. In these persons from the underground, who are normally presented to us as foreign to society, we find both a revolutionary, shaping energy and a vain need for self-validation – in other words, nothing that is strange to us.
