Artistic project : A deux, c'est mieux!
À deux, c’est mieux! is a very simple and delicate intervention that gives a look to the common space, its design as well as its possible uses. The interest of this project is in the experience that people will make of it. While the shape and the movement reminds the seesaw swing, the ambiguous position of such an object of amusement refers to the horse swaying in exchange for a few coins. Then, this project asserts, in its functioning, the idea that pleasure is linked to a shared experience with another. Indeed, the swing can only function by having an accomplice in the game. Both seats, however, are back, and this, to affirm the individuality of the experience, even while sharing a common reality.
