Mineral and vegetable phenomenon.
Like the original Earth, La Motte is a futuristic plant planet of 2.5 meters diameter, bristling with ridges and in perpetual revolution. The monster is driven by gravitational forces and energies that constantly disturb its inevitable trajectory. Sometimes it hesitates, seems to undergo the imposed motion, pitching, stays a moment suspended and then sets out again for its destiny, imprinting with its weight the trace of its passage on the ground to make appear the drawing of its slow and singular writing. This phenomenon with stretched temporality requires a meditative attitude. Challenge or resistance to speed? Watchful in all respects, reticent to analysis, it opens infinite perspectives to our poetic-political imaginations.

To act on the world disorders to detect other layouts and create a new poetic order. An original cartography of a planet without places, Attraction is a project-manifesto to take ownership of our environment, to think by ourselves.
A position. To disrupt our convictions, resist ready-to-think and open up new alternatives.
A protocol of the sight. The world is what we see of it and what is invisible to us. In order to fully comprehend it, it is needed to take into account the multiplicity of points of views that we have.
Principles. Repartir de zéro, observer, expérimenter, tenter, créer.
A rhizome artwork made of accumulations, hybridizations, and mutations that constantly slip between various artistic fields.
A work in progress in constant evolution that shapes a landscape with infinite borders.

Artist coming from the circus world, Johann Le Guillerm studied at the Centre National des Arts du Cirque, he toured with Archaos, la volière Dromesko, co-founded the Cirque O. In 1994, he founded his own company and created a first solo show, Où ça ? , which toured five years. Johann Le Guillerm was awarded in 1996 with the Grand Prix National du Cirque, in 2005 with the Grand Prix des Arts du Cirque SACD and in 2017 the Grand Prix SACD. After a round-the-world trip during which he faces the imbalances of handicapped, traumatized and autarkic worlds, in 2001 he embarked on the Attraction project to take a 360° look at the world. The project led him to explore sculpture, installation, performance, conference and show. A multidisciplinary trajectory he calls practice of the range of points of view.
Since 2011, Johann Le Guillerm is supported and hosted by the Mairie de Paris at the Jardin d’Agronomie Tropicale – Paris, for a creative research residency.

The company works on create mediation tools with a direct link to the artistic project. The setting up of workshops, experiences, professional meetings or specific builds itself into a joint project with cultural structures to say, to do, to feel through experimentation, the gaze, the movement. Thus, projects are built that nurture and are nurtured on long term by the mediation project.
