La galerie de la Biennale

In 2001, Sophie Dejode and Bertrand Lacombe launched "Floating Land", a long-term work revolving around a fictition micro-nation. It is designed as a space for living and creating which is exhibited in different places and changes in line with the wishes of its residents. The residents are chosen by Dejode and Lacombe, who thus short-circuit the role of the institution as artistic authority. Immune to the rules of the Biennale, just as an embassy is immune to the laws of its host country, "Floating Land" functions as a virus destined to contaminate the exhibition. Here the two artists have come up with a sculpture to live in: at its centre is a cooking pot which serves as the focal point for the gigantic feasts that accompany their many performances.
