Douce France is in situ project for Abbey de Maubuisson.The Abbey appears to Olga Kisseleva as a paradigm of this “Douce France” she had dreamed in Russia. But her work is ironical, it draws up an image of a globalized world, dominated by capital and formatted by technology. Complexes and multiform, Kisseleva’s proposals translate with coherence a feeling of confusion and of alienation. But it reveals also a strong engagement to find a way to establish an energy exchange between all parts of actual society. The show takes a form of an work in progress which brings together science, philosophy, new forms of urban expressions, locative media and social network.
