The Toguna is a collective work co-created by craftsmen and visual artists, a space of conviviality and sharing in the heart of the Palais de Tokyo. This publication follows the project's genesis through texts and images, and addresses the questions raised by the collaboration between craftsmen and artists.
As a place of conviviality and sharing, the Toguna is a setting favourable to concentration and contemplation, sketching out a collective territory, both in its conception and its use. As an endless object of interpretations, its aesthetic particularity instantly shows that another form of apprenticeship is possible.
The Toguna was above all conceived as a broad landscape to be explored and visited. It is an immersive work, both as an observatory of different forms of knowhow and a stock of experimental materials. The Toguna examines our relationship with transmission by spilling out beyond the classic form of the amphitheatre. This project was conceived with the support of the Fondation Bettencourt Schueller.
