In March and April 2017, school residency by the artist Gérard Meurant with students of Primary School of Emlingen.
Through a collaborative process with the students, Gérard Meurant experimented with sculpture and image, challenging bodies and moving spaces. A workshop space within the school was the site of various explorations led by the participation of students in the research process. Engaging in a practice that questions images and temporalities, Gérard Meurant and the students explored forms of collective work.

He was awarded First Prize at Médiatine in 2014, has had a solo exhibition in Maac, Jozsa Gallery (Brussels) and participated in group exhibitions at: PM 15#1, Manifeste pour une création visuelle actuelle, Centre wallonie-Bruxelles Paris; Netwerk Project (24h project), Établissement d’en face & ERG, Brussels; Anger Management, Komplot, Brussels (Curator: Benjamin Jaubert); Don't Feed The Artists, They Already Have Too Much To Digest (with Jessica Baxter), TRUST: Copenhagen Art Festival, Copenhagen (Curator: Sonia Dermience); Incidence & Ainsi Danse (with Elektronisch Volume), Angle Art Contemporain, Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux (Curator: Thierry Mouillé); Point of View, Galerie Frédéric Desimpel, Brussels; Black & Vases, Komplot, Bruxelles.
