PUBLIC ART PROJECT AT ST OUEN - BANLIEU NORD OF PARIS (FR)

238 x 70 cm each
The project was produced in the context of the Gemellarte Festival 2019, and produced during the residency at the Galerie Marion in St Ouen, in the Parisian Banlieu.
The work was focused on the Île-des-Vannes, a sports centre complex with brutalist-style architecture which is currently in serious degradation despite hosting some talented and internationally recognized sports teams. During the residency, one of these teams was involved by Abbatangelo in a multidisciplinary work session based on performance and engraving (drypoint). The aim of the project was to connect this degraded area of Île-Saint-Denis with the city center and, through the bridge, two sides on the same city: a pre-gentrified with the urban city center of the banlieu - where Galerie Mariton resides.
