The exhibition produiced by Le LAIT, art center, curator of the exhibition Jackie -Ruth Meyer.
The exhibition created for the site at the Moulins Albigeois (the watermills in Albi) presented several works that brought into question: raw materials, economic production, architecture, economy, the environment, social exchanges, democracy and its function. The show was structured around an architectural pathway that made its way through the building. The piece included earlier works such as, the Wind Pavillon, The Coffee Machine; and works made specifically for the Albi watermills: Running Matter and Yellow Cake
Below is a short film extract of the work.
A fence-like structure, almost life-size in scale, was installed in the art center and acted as an anchoring point for the House of Raw Matters. The whole is made up of texts, installations, sculptures, ceramic and glass, video, drawings and painted images.

The Structure of Correction - The Table of Debate was installed in the art centre’s lobby; belonging to the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lyon, it is both sculpture and furniture, a tool that is open to debates aroused by the exhibition and the questions it generates. It was repeatedly activated by various participants around questions concerning architecture, town planning, art, the environment , the economy, etc.
