To stretch out 100 metres of rope around Doctor Fourquet 8, from the ground floor to the roof: running across the exhibition space, circling around the flats above, and tying the ends in a knot.

The artist develops a perfect situationist practice, based on specific interventions of a performative character. Using the space’s characteristics as a starting point- architectural elements and infrastructure; organisational structures; regulations; protocols; historical or recent events- she creates minimal operations of displacement that, in the process of being carried out, bring into play the constrictions and complexities of the framework they inscribe themselves upon.
