Collectif Tchan-Zâca

Founded in 2013, the Tchan-Zâca collective is made up of forty artists from the Greater Geneva region. It was set up during the course of the year by Zoé Cappon and Jonathan Delachaux, who brought together an eclectic group of artists to work on a single project: the creation of an imaginary city and its culture.

The members of the collective work together on themes such as artificial intelligence, the encounter between digital art and physical art (‘physital’), the development of a collective imagination, and the blurring of the boundaries between fiction and reality, between art and life.

Tchan-Zâca means "sad song" or "sad field" in the Val-de-Travers dialect, from which Jonathan Delachaux hails.


Their artwork La Conversation du Cormoran is on view from Wednesday to Saturday, between 5 PM and 8 PM from September 13 to 30, aboard the Bateau Genève.
