Light !

Light !

The exhibition unfolds around two rivals - one violent, who smashes and injures (the work of Zhang Ding, the videos of Ange Leccia), the other poetic, close to the shadow with which she speaks and agrees (Sophie Dubosc’s lightbulb enclosed in concrete, Laurent Pernot’s candle).

The visitor finds him- or herself plunged here into an indistinct darkness in which a fluid scene unfolds that is not about "channelling" the light, but about directing it in a way that divides the space into a number of intense plays.

Goethe maintains that light is movement.

This exhibition, neither demonstrative nor theoretical, takes a sensory approach, involving the poetics of the visible and of that which creates it - that is, of light as creator. The light also reveals violence, the vagaries of the age, the deconstructions that obliterate it, the fault lines that crisscross it, the troubles. It does this in an unspeakable way that also searches and caresses.

This exhibit seeks to show, at base, how light renders itself perceptible.
