The RAJA Contemporary Art Collection is delighted to have supported the creation of the “Square Analogue” installation by artists Tamaya Sapey-Triomphe and Thomas Mopin Viers. The work was produced as part of the “Super Kids Party” event, the latest edition of which was held at Lafayette Anticipations – Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette on March 23 and 24.

The artists took over the Fondation’s Agora with corrugated and honeycomb cardboard sheets supplied by RAJA for the occasion, creating a participatory and ephemeral installation based on a poetic myth of their own invention. 

March 23 and 24, 2024: every leap year, during the first weekend of spring, the water in all the underground passages of planet Earth is transformed by the energy of buds coming back to life after long months of hibernation, mixed with the very slowly melting snows of similar mountains. Unfortunately, this natural event is invisible in big cities, where we have gradually lost our connection with such spring phenomena. To remedy this situation, and with a view to including this leap-year event in official calendars in the future, we have built the fountain that finally allows us to observe the silver water“. (artist’s quotes) 

Adults and children were invited to assemble cardboard offerings and place them on the edge of a silver-water fountain, making a wish.
