Énergies Désespoirs, Un monde à réparer (Energy Despair, A world to fix)
“Énergies Désespoirs, Un monde à réparer is the catalogue of the eponymous exhibition initiated and designed by Encore Heureux Architectes and the Lyon Urban School, installed at the CENTQUATRE-PARIS in Aubervilliers from 29 May to 1 August 2021.
The exhibition explores two opposing sides of our contemporary planet:
– The crisis of the Earth’s habitability revealed by more and more signs documented by science.
– The initiatives, at different scales, which testify to the possible repair of this world damaged by the impact of human activities.
The catalogue, like the exhibition, puts in tension the despair that arises from the observation of environmental damage and the energy that comes from experimenting with ecological reorientation of our ways of living.
The catalogue includes a text by José-Manuel Gonçalvès, a preface by Jean-Christophe Bailly, an interview with the curatorial team and a set of 120 large-format paintings by the artist Bonnefrite. This work, as a vector of an engaged imagination, seeks to transmit a direct emotion, but also a collective thought.
In order to open up the reflection undertaken in the exhibition and to deepen certain issues raised, the book also includes the answers of fifteen personalities to the question “What is your despair? What is your energy?” and the republication of five articles from the daily online newspaper AOC. “
