Curator and founder of Praxis Matters, a tool for practical research investigating contemporary forms of artistic practice. Bringing together practitioners from various backgrounds, Praxis Matters is an invitation to share experiences and working strategies, test concepts, forms and tools, open up new inquiries. The project seeks to explore in depth the vocabulary, operating modes, and economies of current artistic practices. 

NOWADAYS, THE TEAM IS COMPLETED WITH

Benoît has been during a decade an associate of the architecture office New-territories/R&Sie with which he did significantly the exhibition I've heard about at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in 2005. He has conducted researches on unstable environment by making study trips to Northern Siberia (2006-2007). He now lives and works in Athens and is the founder of Graspinghand studio (2011). The studio is dedicated to the conception and the production of objects, unique or in small series. Its production is deeply rooted to the athenian context, small workshops and digital tools. The studio is currently developping a satellite that will carry an artificial nose in low orbit. www.graspinghand.org / graspinghand.com
