'Le Grand Troc' is a work by Nicolas Floc'h founded on a procedure that the artist developed and implemented for the first time in Santiago de Chile in 2008, in Porto Alegre, Brazil, in 2009, and most recently in Vitry-sur-Seine in 2015. Its genesis in the context of a slum in Santiago, Lo Espejo, in response to a New Patrons project, was a determining factor. It gave the project its strengths without forcing it into a rigid code of regulations. For the artist, each implementation of 'Le Grand Troc' is a new field of research. Porto Alegre and Vitry-sur-Seine enabled him to explore other forms of implementation that resonated with the uniqueness of each social and cultural environment as well as with the interaction with the institutions involved.
