Slavs and Tatars
Régions d’etre

painted steel, 400 x 200 x 50 cm, ed. of 3 + 1 A.P.

A jungle gym for children and adults alike, Régions d'etre celebrates the pluralist and lateral approach to identity found across Slavs and Tatars' work. Literally "a region of being," Régions d'etre embeds a cheerful complexity to the otherwise innocuous medium of playground architecture. The work goes to the very origins of the artists' practice: by choosing to lodge themselves between an area east of the former Berlin Wall and west of the Great Wall of China.
