Les enfants du sabbat 15
Creux de l'enfer - CAC, Thiers (FR)
Curator: Frédéric Bouglé
Associated curators: Roland Cognet, Philippe Eydieu, Joël Tardy
With his series that he calls ‘Actes’, Alexandre Lavet establishes a list of possible gestures in the exhibition space. It may be as simple as sweeping the broom and leaving the collected dust in a corner or hanging a nylon thread from the ceiling at eye level. These interventions very slightly derail the framework that constitutes the exhibition space by revealing the trace of human activity that is usually hidden in this place. A trace, hardly surprising and barely visible, reveals this place and the stories that live inside it.
For the present exhibition, Alexandre Lavet has created several ‘Actes’ which are as many ways of making Creux de l’enfer a place of an investigation on the conditions of the works' presentations.
