Join Sans façon on a journey from a silent fairground in Germany to the ice field’s of Greenland, from a wedding in Wyoming to Calgary’s sewers, from the scents of people’s memories to charting the seabed of Fogo Island.
A look at the place of contemporary art practice in the public realm today.
Artists duo Sans façon (Charles Blanc & Tristan Surtees) began working together in 2001 in Glasgow, Scotland. Their diverse practice responds to the relationship between people and place. Collaborating with architects, composers, geographers or perfumers, they work internationally on projects ranging from ephemeral performances, temporary installations in public space, large scale permanent artworks, to developing and implementing city wide strategies. Their approach renews awareness and tempts interaction, inviting one to look and think differently about our relationship to our surroundings and one another. Sans façon is currently based in Calgary, Canada.
