With a shared sensibility towards the world and in their lives as artists, Flora Citroën and Kévin Blinderman chose to associate their practice during their residency in Lindre-Basse. In residence in Moselle, the artists wished to invest their Jewish origins to focus on the historical potential of the Synagogue de Delme and its community, now dispersed. Through an incomplete, mostly oral, and partially written story, the artists became improvised historians in order to express a story making the link between this Jewish history in Delme and their own. By making the synagogue a fictional character – the artists’ alter-ego, sharing a Jewish past and a present shaped by contemporary creation – they intend to draw on the many lacuna inherent to the history of the synagogue not as a constraint, but as so many interstices that they can enter into, to imagine connections and stories, inspired by reality to produce new fictions that might enlighten an as yet fragile history. Between personal quest and historical interest in a heritage site with a singular fate, Flora Citroën and Kévin Blinderman experiment together with new relationships with conversation, intimacy, and the aesthetic treatment of an emotional charge.
