2018 Alex Denuy et Catherine Poulain, collectif NAO

Fred Forest has always been surrounded by innovative people, with whom he has carried out numerous projects over the course of his life. His work at art schools and universities often led him to play the role of mentor to some of them, who still follow him today. Catherine Poulain and Alexis Denuy contacted him on their own initiative, out of interest in his work and seeing links with their own... and he himself, having found their approach interesting, gave them the benefit of his own experience. They asked him to produce this document, using one of his texts as a basis for one of their performances. They are co-founders of the NAO collective.
