Exhibition without works

In art history, there are many art works that are not available to see any longer due to various reasons such as natural disasters, theft and destruction. Myriam Lefkowitz, a choreographer, and dancer Julie Laporte try to restore and hand down aforementioned art works which are never displayed by using words and body. At this exhibition, participants who applied to join the session in advance will express themselves by using their body after being told about the characteristics or stories of the works from the two artists. The public will be free to witness the artists perform on the selected participants. When the lost works come to life again how do we react to them? Please look forward to this special “exhibition” only available for a day during the Nuit Blanche 2018.

I Will Keep A Light Burning

Poetic installation that will take the audience on a time travel. Renaud-Auguste Dormeuil presents the celestial map as it will be in 100 years by using 1,000 candles. This exhibition illustrates the mutability of time for humanity. Please enjoy this spectacle for a few hours until all the candles one by one go out.
