In Grand Rue where the first Ghetto Biennale took place, the local sculptors are now teaching a new young generation of artists called Ti Moun Rezistans. This is the name of the group of children ranging from 6 to 18 years old that have been learning art skills from older artists in the neighbourhood. They all took part in the Ghetto Biennale. Currently all the children exhibit their work nailed around the walls of the neighbourhood and have to work sitting on the ground without shade.
Our concept is to involve the local young artists into the building process of their own gallery. We rely on their creativity and inventivness to come out with an artistic view of the gallery as a building.
During the ghetto Biennale we aim at organizing workshops and model making to confront our experience as architects with the young sculptors while getting to learn about local materials and craftmanship.
