Join Villa Albertine Chicago for a special event as part of City/Cité integrating dance, performance, video images and architecture that will shed necessary light on the expression of individuals in a common place.
To develop I-3, Villa Albertine residents Christophe Hutin and Ben Mahi have developed a project mixing dance and video capture. Through different habitats or environments, the film tells how the inhabitants transform and improve the architecture. Its scenography based on the moving image shows the movement in architecture which is a social fact. More than ever, it must allow us, as individuals, to project ourselves in places of the common so that we can live together again. Hutin and Ben Mahi want to explore how contemporary architecture can transform Chicago’s west and south sides, and specifically how the people who inhabit these spaces might be its builders.
This event is hosted by Studio Gang and organized by Villa Albertine/Cultural Services of the French Embassy in Chicago.
Founded and led by Jeanne Gang, Studio Gang is an architecture and urban design practice headquartered in Chicago with offices in New York, San Francisco, and Paris.
