Slow art way

TEAM: Bouchard-Bédard, Florence – Canadian – Boubed – scéonographie et design d’espace

From swiftness to contemplation
Short description :
Art museums give an opportunity to transgress social acceleration, productivity and capitalism related to urban space. Indeed, museums allow aesthetic experiences and a particular attention quality, thanks to art.
To preserve this experience, museums do not need to be renewed or altered. Characteristics related to urban space have to stay out of it ; a distinction between city and museum is esssential. The purpose is to design the passage from urban everyday life to art museum experience, a transition from rationality and speed to sensibility and slowness.
Slow art way conceives the museum as a celestial body in the infinite universe we call urban space. We do not approach this body directly but at first, enter orbit around it, observe it and slow down. Small stars on the ground create paths leading to the museum by diversion. Different means – anamorphosis, viewpoints, mirors on the ground, dividing walls, soft ground, etc. – allow visitors to gradually quit their hectic pace of life, connect with their sensibility, focus attention and forget time.
