Historical Fictions - The Rue Des Vertus
For the exhibition "HISTORICAL FICTIONS" I have chosen to make a vocal history of the space and street that "L'Atelier des Vertus" dwells in.
Many sound recordings have been made of anonymous individuals and residents of the street, in many different languages. The sounds that come out of various hidden speakers are of these individuals freely associating and describing both quotidian life as it unfolds in the street, and their reaction towards the nature of the art and details of this special gallery space itself.
It is a visual artwork, but one without objects. The visible only materializing through vocalized words and the traces language leaves lingering.
The objects in the room are the works of Johanne Bouvier, Katia Feltrin, and Sabine Stellittano.
It runs from the 8th of June until September 2012, with the Vernissage on the 8th, this Friday, at 18:00. I will be present.
