DEGRÉ ZÉRO IS A CURATORIAL AND CREATIVE STRUCTURE FOUNDED IN 2015 BY THEO CASCIANI AND CLEO VERSTREPEN.

IT IS BOTH THE NAME OF SIGNATURE OF THE ARTWORKS PRODUCED IN DUO BY THEO CASCIANI AND CLEO VERSTREPEN AND A CURATORIAL PLATFORM WHICH ORGANISES COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS, EXHIBITIONS, EDITIONS AND TALKS.

DEGRÉ ZÉRO' MULTIDISCIPLINARY PROJECTS MIX THEO CASCIANI & CLEO VERSTREPEN’S RESPECTIVE PRACTICES. THEO CASCIANI IS AN AUTHOR GRADUATE FROM SCIENCES PO. PARIS AND MEMBER OF THE WORKSHOP OF THE CONTEMPORARY WRITINGS, IN LA CAMBRE - BRUSSELS. THROUGH HIS WORK, HE AIMS TO OPEN LITERATURE TO OTHER MEDIAS AND APPREHENDS IT AS A CONTEMPORARY ART ON ITS OWN. AFTER PHILOSOPHY AND POLITICAL SCIENCES DEGREES, CLEO VERSTREPEN CURRENTLY CONDUCTS CULTURAL STUDIES RESEARCHES. HER CURATORIAL PRACTICE AND HER APPEAL FOR HUMANITIES LEAD HER TO GET INTERESTED IN THE SOCIAL AND CULTURAL SIGNIFICANCE OF ARTISTIC CREATIONS. AS SO, THEO CASCIANI & CLEO VERSTREPEN’S COMMON PROJECTS INVOLVE VARIOUS THEORETICAL, VIRTUAL AND PHYSICAL MATERIALS, FROM VIDEO AND TEXTS TO SOUND AND SCULPTURE, AND MAINLY TAKE THE FORM OF SPATIAL COMPOSITIONS. THESE PRODUCTIONS AIM TO CREATE SITUATIONS TO WHICH THE VIEWERS ARE EXPOSED AND THAT, RATHER THAN IMPOSING A NARRATIVE, ALLOW THEM TO BUILD THEIR OWN, PARTING FROM WHAT THEY SEE AND PERCEIVE AND THROUGH AN INTENSIFICATION OF THEIR GAZE. THE PLATFORM DEGRÉ ZÉRO ALLOW THEM TO METHODICALLY UNITE THEIR THEORETICAL RESSOURCES, THE PRODUCTION PROCESS AND THE EXHIBITION EXPERIENCE BY MERGING CREATION WITH CURATING. THEIR WORKS HAVE BEEN PRESENTED IN DIFFERENT PUBLICATIONS, EVENTS AND INSTITUTIONS SUCH AS NUIT BLANCHE (JAPAN), YOKAI SOHO (JAPAN), FORUM KYOTO (JAPAN), LA CAPELA (FRANCE), FABRIQUE (FRANCE), LE LAC (BELGIUM) OR ENSAV - LA CAMBRE (BELGIUM).
