In the light of day.

Promenade Blanche / Weisse Reise by Susanna Fritscher at Frac Franche-Comté, 2013 © Susanna Fritscher photo credits : Susanna Fritscher, Laurent Tessier

To celebrate 30 years of Frac (Regional funding for contemporary art),

Franche-Comté has offered itself to the Rolls-Royce of its kind in terms of architecture, on the coast of Doubs in Besançon, with a new construction by Kengo Kuma. And we would have very nearly missed out on this work if this new pixelated city of art – unique in France on an environmental and energy level, with 1200m2 of photovoltaic panels – did not welcome only the most refined pieces/exhibitions, such as the whitened Promenade by Susanna Fritscher (the White Lady of contemporary art), a sublime, flowing and poetic display. The image of this matter blends with a meander of fluid films and 2 metre glass lenses…an exhibition that also plays with transparency and light, to further inscribe itself in this perfect architecture, adapted around its subject.
