Guillaume Adjutor Provost has been developing for nearly ten years a work oriented towards the development of spaces of hospitality and collaboration with a community of peers, often from the performance like him, but also with actors coming from non artistic backgrounds and from which stories need to be told. This space of hospitality materializes here in the discursive and polyphonic form of the book, which becomes a kind of extension of the eld of conversation put in place by the artistic practice of Provost. Conceived by the artist himself as a platform for invitations, discussions and exchanges, this book brings together four essays that form as many points of entry into the work. It highlights a cycle of research and exploration conducted with the support of the prestigious Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Art (2016). It also marks the end of a three-year creative residency at the Darling Foundry, where the artist bene ted from a year from the sponsorship of Christine and G. Pierre Lapointe.
