With its CeCiL’s Box project, Cercle Cité welcomes creations in one of its windows on rue du Curé. This project aims to present varied and original interventions to the public, and is also a way to support local creation by offering visibility to guest artists. These interventions are visible 7 days a week, day and night.
The fifth intervention is entrusted to the artist-illustrator Aline Forcain. From her pencil and felt-tip pen drawing practice, to the watercolours she draws in her sketchbooks, she carries on her sensibility and freedom of style in a drawn installation inspired by the design of the Cercle’s bas-reliefs. Faux-semblant is a drawn installation whose formal representation is based in part on the Cercle Cité's bas-reliefs. It is a question of diverting them by reconsidering their symbolic dimension, while using ornementation as the main framework of the project. The piece is thought in resonance to a Middle-Age work, thus creating an anachronistic dialogue.
