Allow yourself to pause, taste the urban landscape.
And feel the full force of the city across your face.
Becoming actors in a transformation of the urban mood.
Les Immobiles proposes a very simple and yet problematic posture as it is ill-considered on a social level : to remain still and unmoving in a public space : collectively allowing ourselves this suspended moment, tasting what surrounds us, through a progressive acuity of the senses, letting the city hit you full on.
Les Immobiles stops in the city, exiting the fow, recovering the power of wonderment for the human being as he is, asserting its presence in “public” space, where it is still seen as suspicious to remain still.
Les Immobiles summon themselves, conjuring imagination at the heart of the city. A singular, yet plural, imagination. Imagination: an elegant thing for shifting one’s apprehension of the world and for initiating its transformation.
