SKIP SKIP SKIP is a project by simon hitziger and jean-françois robardet - following their duet shows 'autoreverse' (2007) and 'fast forward' (2010) it takes place in the international project 'the invisible generation' by per hüttner and daniele balit after having participated to the 'tig' project in melbourne - robardet proposed to hitziger to continue their research by working on the same show in different locations indeed - robardet will be working in ukrain while hitziger will do the same in france - during three days every day - installations will be built and dismantled at night every step of the work will be hosted and streamed on the performance season website
SKIP SKIP SKIP is launched parallel to robardet's personal research - duet show 'ken!' with curator yulia usova and 'caredig' song composed with yoann bourreau and created on ukrainian radio

simon hitziger (1980) - lives and works in nancy
simon hitziger uses the exhibition space as a support for work - he adapts forms - objects or parts of architecture to take them out of their original context or to modify the sense of it
his reflexion is based on various concepts such as transition or evolution - as they can be physical or mental the artist sensitivity develops in the industrial world and urban spaces of transition - like building sites in construction or demolition - in which he finds his aesthetic reference marks parallel to his production of sculptures and installations - simon hitziger built a pictorial universe composed by drawings and photographs he connects voyages and dreams by proposing means of transport means with their fall and hang points

jean-françois robardet (1980) - works where he lives
in his practice - robardet addresses themes such as unity and anarchy - nature - place of human into nature - autonomy and wait - absence - loneliness and relationship - by using every medium without preference and combining several media within one and/or several systems as part of in-site installations or autonomous object - each piece branches off with the shape of a family tree - generated in different times and locations - such as an invisible anatomy establishing networks and bonds between collectors each exhibition is an occasion to create a new piece and each creation is shown only once - then -depending on the situation - it can be documented - acquired - transformed or destroyedsince 2007 - he develops a project based on scientific aspects - eliminating superstitious and magical issues
he concurrently develops his practice as a curator
