In responding to the invitation from Palais de Tokyo, Lek and Sowat expressed an interest in the entrails of Palais: the secondary spaces not intended to accommodate exhibitions that are normally closed to the public. Their peripheral architecture is minimalist, and bears the marks of time (the nooks and crannies are dusty and covered with spider’s webs, the paint has turned yellow, the walls are in poor repair). For this intervention, Lek and Sowat are bringing together artists from different generations and fields of practice. Every artist contributes his/her skill, line, gestures, history, to a collective work in which egos and styles overlap, clash, and cohabit in a diaphanous, clandestine composition, using spray paint, paintbrush, pencil, chalk, and other salvaged materials that fall into their hands.
