De Marie Lelouche installation 2017
A mobile screen was offered to us, without a guide, without a manual, which seemed stuck in recording mode. Hence we move forward with a feeling of uncertainty with regards to what awaits us, but never mind. The experience is sure to be instinctive or will at least seem relatively natural. There, in front of us, a white object, a volume posed directly on the ground. We begin by observing it through this small screen. When we firmly hold it, a voice escapes from it, which echoes in the palms of our hands. They hold a tale that we have difficulty locating. And there’s another thing: an image, a volume that moves about. It floats in the direction of the washed up form. It is not alone and now comes to interlink, to incorporate itself with the others. They all suspend their flight in this white, central form with a rather familiar geometry. – We walk around this mass on a human scale, washed up like a block on the uncertain surface. We walk around these incorporated elements with photographic colours. – To walk, to turn back in order to locate the pieces, to again examine the places and their overlapping. – We are on the flat surface of the screen, in the filmed space of the exhibition, there where everything is assembled, is superposed, there were our half-guided senses search for bearings. We are in perpetual reconstitution, between these volumes, aware that our place is situated in these incomplete spaces of the proposal. After a few minutes, the screen is replaced by a feeling of presence; the sculpture seems to still be there, even though it no longer shows itself.
