avec 8000 francs vos plaisirs prennent formes (with 8'000 francs your pleasures take on forms), 1999
Installation, Mire art contemporain etc, Geneva. Curated by Hervé Laurent.

For the exhibition in Geneva, RELAX left the thematic contents to the public and made themselves available as assistants for the interpretation and execution of the art requested. They have a questionnaire printed in the newspaper „Le Temps“ and ask the readers to make their opinions known to the artists. Since the answers that were registered are somewhat too bland to be used, the artists plumb for a statistic representation with poufs and decorative wall patterns. Only the two most striking results (I love: blue. I hate: plastic flowers) are especially underlined. The questionnaires were kept available for consultation.
