LA COURSE DE LENTEUR
A participatory project for the public space
The race is a test of speed, a competition over a distance, a given route.
I want to organize a race for many people in the public space.
In a time when society promotes a certain distinctive speed, aggressiveness, competitiveness, productivity, I want to organize a race that reverses its nature, its calling by inventing a new rule: the loser is the winner!
This race is a slow race, it follows the rules of this type of competition, but its purpose is reversed: it is he who comes last, who is the slowest, who wins the race.
Anybody can register, the course is approximately 50 meters long and the rule is simple: to move forward, always forward. Stops and reversals are prohibited.
To move forward, as slowly as possible, in order to be the last competitor to reach the finish line.
