At le Point Perché, The Absolut Company makes it a point of honour to stimulate exchanges between artists and researchers from all over the world in residency in Paris, by way of lectures and debates. The first part of this series, programmed by Nicola Setari and titled Artists' Soapbox Series, in reference to those speakers who, since the 19th century, have been standing on makeshift boxes to improvise their rostrums, has been a great success. 

Robin McGinley has come up with a new interpretation of The John Cage 33 1/3 Project , inviting the audience to re-tune and test the twelve turntables installed in le Point Perché. An unique and interactive acoustic experience !

You were dreaming of a new kind of cultural guide? Malena Beer has made one for you. For her performance Un-visible, the Argentinian artist, who is also a yoga teacher and choreographer, invites every spectator to let themselves be swept up, eyes shut, by a kindly performer, for an improvised stroll in several parts of the Palais de Tokyo and at le Point Perché, during which their sensory perception, relieved of sight, will increase tenfold.

Some “electrifying” pictures of the Poetry concert. A very beautiful stage presence by Christophe Fiat and Nicolas Fenouillat, who gave an original and generous performative concert at le Point Perché.

A Davide Balula work invariably holds out the promise of an elegant alliance between several domains of art. The French artist, now living in New York, studied not only fine arts but also music, dance and the decorative arts. Which is tantamount to saying that he has several strings to his bow. 

It was at le Point Perché  in Michael Riedel’s installation “Jacques comité [Giacometti]” that La Fondation Giacometti celebrated its 10th anniversary. All the photos of the meeting with the artist Emmanuel Saulnier, on Wednesday 11 December, as part of the lectures around the notion of  "Capturing the Image in Time: Time in the Space of Representation”.

Beyond the verbal and the rational… In exclusivity, a video captation and photos of the performance by Joachim Montessuis

The preview of the music video “Pleine Lune” [Full moon] at le Point Perché took place on Nov.7, 2013. It was presented in the form of a longer edit (20mn), together with an exclusive live performance by Trésors.

Can you tell us what's Holi is all about and what your film aims at showing here ? 

Holi is one of my favorite festivals in India where people come together and play with color. However, there has been an old tradition which doesn't allow widows to wear colors. They are supposed to wear white clothes for the rest of their lives after their husband died, especially in small towns like Veranasi where the festival takes place. It is rather sad and I take it as a comfort zone : how could someone not be allowed to touch color. Things suddenly changed recently. I've read an article in March saying they would be allowed to wear colors for the first in 2013. This lead to the idea of making this movie.  

A special evening during the ASVOFF Festival at le Point Perché , which brought together many leading figures from the worlds of fashion, art and film around Manish Arora’s first short film, backed by The Absolut Company in India. Soon available in the journal, an exclusive interview with Manish Arora...

This is the reality of our world, and I find that here, The Absolut Company has really played its part of patron by allowing a complex installation to exist for as many people as people."
