Artistic project : Ce que racontent les couloirs jaunes

This work is an architectural, sound and performative installation. It consists of presenting a platform whose configuration is modelled after the corridors from the game Clue (Cluedo) - the rooms to which they lead do not exist. These hallways embrace empty spaces. The corridors exist only for themselves, they no longer connect designated places of daily life or work.
A sound system concealed beneath the platform (corridors) offers a sound map of these absent places (the living room, the library, the ballroom, etc.) and of these functions void of meaning.
A reading program will be offered during the duration of the exhibition. Excerpts from texts will be read by performance artists and by eager readers.
