Ligne - Linha - Line. 400.000 volts. Trace - Traco - Trace

Architect, artist and author Wim Cuyvers (1958°) together with Pedro Prazeres, Francis Jonckheere and Antoine Devaux realized a project on a high voltage line (400,000 volts, from Génissiat to Frasne), which crosses the area of Montavoix where he works. The four of them followed the high voltage line from pylon to pylon, 214 pylons far. The exhibition presents an artistic installation about the project.

Accompanying the exhibition is the book Ligne - Linha - Line. 400.000 volts. Trace - Traco - Trace published.

Wim Cuyvers obtained his degree in architecture at the academy of Ghent (1977-82) and subsequently worked in various national and international architecture studio’s. He then started his own remarkable architecture and art practice, and taught at several architecture schools in the Netherlands, France and Belgium. In 2005 he was awarded the ‘Cultuurprijs’ of the Flemish Community for Architecture. For more than ten years he has been working in Montavoix on projects that test and investigate the commitment and social significance of architecture
