A group of teenage girls meet. Sitting on a bench, they discuss their personal and collective troubles, share memories and dream of what they could become. Together they search for strategies to deal with their environment, exploring the possibilities at the end of the road.
In this work, Cécile Bally uses Sitcom-strategies to explore the edge of the city, the periphery, where civilization as we know it ends and the imaginary begins. Throughout time these spaces have been invested with many utopian projections and dreams of radical change. Social and architectural visionaries have made it into a testing ground for the society of the future. When built and lived in, however, these utopian experiments often turn out to be nightmares, dystopian places that connect to a feeling of angst and disillusion. (Text: Cécile Bally)
