Project developed during a year and a half, during which my art collective was able to discover the existence of a hotel abandoned in the middle of the mountains. The latter, with an area of 32,000 square meters, composed of 460 rooms, thus became our white elephant in the middle of nowhere. We saw an incredible opportunity for artistic development for which we invited several people to express themselves as they pleased. For my part, I have paid special attention to the ruins, trying to understand them as living beings in order to interact with my own human presence within them. There are two phases in this project: the first, in the first year, being the experience of occupation in itself. The second was the production of a register consisting of drawings, texts and photographs. To this end, we divided the occupation into four conditions:
HOUSING: residing, living, cohabiting, people
INTERVENE: to be present, to attend, to succeed in an unexpected manner, to interpose its authority, its good treatment, to voluntarily take part, to integrate.
SITUATE: to position, to put (in a space/time), to designate a correct place, to sit, to build, to edify.
REVERBERATE: echoing, producing echo, traveling away, in time and space, notable or celebrated duty later
