Capacity for resilience, but also overcompensation, boomerang effect or impulse for radical change.. the rebound that generally occurs after a crisis or traumatic event is a force of impulse and an irresistible movement that can take different directions and forms.
Unequivocal, equivocal, in which direction do you see the bounce coming?
In July, the group show will take place at Paris 6, partly in an outdoor space adjoining a hotel and partly indoors in a second space with a total area of 94m2.
