#An artistic relational research or why create territorial projects
The company seeks to discover the human inheritance hidden underneath our cities. It explores the relation between public and private space and engage the audience in a process of co-creation: it fosters experience sharing and collective writing in which the artist and accomplices meet and unveil. Facchini collects material from dialogue born from inquiries, life tales and real or fictional autobiographies. Drawing from the real, the life tale, the encounters, Floriane Facchini & Cie falls within an ethnographical and relational approach. Attentive to the day to day and the ordinary, nourished from her relationship with others, Floriane Facchini & Cie invites to think about public space through temporary installations, ethnographic strolls and poetic diversions, with the ambition to reveal another perceptions of life.
