LES LABORATOIRES D’AUBERVILLIERS, Paris, France
Kateřina Šedá will begin her residency at Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers in September 2016; she will be inviting Aubervilliers residents to participate in a talent contest, open to all forms of talent. Once enrolled, the residents of the commune of Aubervilliers who wish to express a talent will be invited to present their talent before a panel of judges made up of local figures. The winners will have their name engraved on the pavement of a street in Aubervilliers, like the ‘Walk of Fame’ on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. In the Aubervilliers context, this ‘walk of fame’ will be a tribute to the diversity and richness of the residents’ talents and histories, and will be an opportunity to share and preserve them like a notable memory with all those who walk in the chosen street. Far from being a typical competition, the contest will be an opportunity for residents/participants to meet and exchange with one another.
