2005 - 2009



“Friperie” (“thrift store”) is a public conversation device based on the barter of clothing. 

It consists of a mobile unit (bike-closet, computer, printer and textile press) allowing the personalization of clothing based on images and stories taken from intervention sites. Passers-by barter their clothes for others already personalized or personalize them directly with us.

This project was performed between 2005 and 2009 in different places :

  • Royan, as part of “Captures#14, an artistic residenceorganized by the association “Echancrures”.
  • Artigues-près-Bordeaux in the context of the event “Forum des Territoires” organised by the Resource Centre on the policy of the City PQA (Pays et Quartiers d’Aquitaine).

At the crossroads of art, territories and populations, our approach aims to promote the transition to sustainable, shared and welcoming cities, by proposing alternative ways of imagining and building our living environment and by exploring new forms of public space.
