Hortense Gauthier and Philippe Boisnard

Two artists, Hortense Gauthier and Philippe Boisnard, offer a geographical path of the 20 cities of Literature in UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network.

Geopoetical crossings

Between poetry and documentary,  this geographical and digital disposal presents the specificity of each city as well as their interrelationships through literature and poetry.

Photographic crossings, weaving of words, geopoetical networks, portraits through their texts, poems creating infinite landscapes, maps to recompose like a puzzle … HP Process offers an exploration of this worldwide literary mapping according to algorithmic and poetic principals and leads to an urban drift 2.0.

From Dublin to Sofia, through Montevideo, Prague, Roma or even Granada, words draws the patterns of each city.

Visitors will also participate to a disposal contributing to a collective writing on the website and in the exhibition space, because literature, associated to the potentialities of digital technologies, can open up on extended territories, imaginary and sensitive mapping, where language connects us beyond frontiers.
