In the event of the « Off » of the Contemporary Art Biennale of Lyon 2013, the Art Tripping association is creating a call for entries on the theme “Journey”. The project consists of two performances or displays and three exhibitions that will be organised by Art Tripping. The main theme for this call for entries concerns three different ways of travelling. Three sentences accompany these different visions.

Step 1. Intimacy “It’s one thing to travel, to go further numerous horizons, and a completely other thing to meet one’s past like an image of one’s self.” Le Clézio

Step2. Absurd “I wonder if I am going to cross the world from one end to the other! How funny it would be to resurface among these people who walk with their heads upside down.” Lewis Caroll

Step3. Ultra reality “Naturally, journeys around the world are not as pleasant as they seem. It is only once you have fled all the horror and the heat that you remember the strange scenes you saw.” Kerouac
