Agora - Eden Morfaux, Myr Muratet
‘Agora’ tells the story of a sculptural project in the public space, led by the artist Eden Morfaux at the Place des Franciades in Massy, a Parisian suburb, which is partly destined for demolition. Through the eyes of photographer Myr Muratet, who captured the stages of the artist’s work and the neighbourhood during his residency, the book becomes a testimony of a community in full transformation. The book also documents the project through encounters with locals. Essays by Dork Zabunyan, Paul Landauer, and Étienne Hervy explore the artist’s approach to the “social sculpture”, the impending demolition of the large residential complexes, and the act of locating artworks in public space.
