•  2018  Vibrations, organisé par WithOut Art Galerie, Strasbourg, France.

              Xu Jing, Gao Zhenyu & Dominique Kippelen 
              Du 6 au 29 Septembre 2018
              Xu Jing calligraphe et Gao Zhenyu céramiste se rejoignent dans une réappropriation contemporaine des savoir-faire ancestraux chinois. L’un                   propose une gestuelle lyrique du tracé, l’autre une accroche délicatement vibrante de la lumière sur les volumes. En écho à ces univers, les                       sculptures de Dominique Kippelen ouvrent un dialogue entre les nervures du bois et le poli de l’aluminium.

Pièce Brésilienne.

• Topografia is an installation first created in Brazil during a residence in São Paulo, its purpose is to circulate from one place to another in all parts of the world, whether they are urban or rural places, cities or forests. The installation is constructed little by little, transformed at will and evolves freely from one country to the next. It becomes enriched at each new stage thanks to meetings with inhabitants in towns or cities, in-between and/or uncertain spaces, forests.

It is a dynamic participative process. So far, the project has developed in the cities of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), São-Paulo (Brazil), Karlsruhe (Germany), Strasbourg (France). Today it is made of 241 pieces of 241 different shapes, numbered from 1 to 241.

The work questions contemporary representations of the space of a town or city and its very

nature. The people who are interested in participating (belonging to a school, a village, a university or an informal group) are asked to make suggestions concerning the shapes of the pieces which are supposed to evoke the place they live in (private or collective ones)

The proposals could be drawings, sketches or small texts.

From the suggestions, the shapes made on the spot by a craftsman/woman or by the artist

according to the context, always in wood of local species, the shapes may integrate different

states of the wood (burnt, broken, ashes, ...) if it makes sense in relation to the nature of the

place. They can also be made by the inhabitants themselves in workshops if the context makes it possible.

One piece has to be 8cm x13cm x7 cm at the most.
