In March and April 2017, school residency by the artist Gérard Meurant with students of Primary School of Emlingen.
Through a collaborative process with schoolchildren, Gérard Meurant experiments with sculpture and image, challenging bodies and moving spaces. A workshop space within the school could be the site of various explorations leading by the participation of pupils in the research process. Engaging a work that questions the image and flexible temporalities, Gérard Meurant and the pupils explored new ways of collective realisation.
