Rebetez‘s latest projection work, titled ‘Place des Cubes’, evoking a square in Belfort (France) built in the 80‘s in a postmodern style. This video work has given the exhibition its title and refers to the nickname provided by the local community to the officially named “Place de Franche-Comté”, which was inaugurated in 1988 and designed by architect and urban planner Jacqueline Tribillon (1952 – 2019). Located in a neighborhood dedicated to social housing, the Place des Cubes was intended to act as a playground for children and adults – the square quickly suffered from the ravages of time and vandalism. The composition, freely inspired by Mondrian or the ‚Rubick’s Cube‘ depending on your point of view, makes it a witness of its time with its contradictions and incongruous positivism.
