“Let us call to mind the principle of Residenz: it is about constructing an inhabitable sculpture within the park, not far from the art centre, a form consisting of an assemblage of various elements provided by the industrial and economic context of the territory. Residenz is a public sculpture. It is also a house and autonomous residence that you alone retain the right to use. This structure will be part of the art centre’s artistic project, but what will happen there will be under your sole responsibility.”
