sound installation with 5 speakers
exhibition Subréel, MAC, Marseille, 2002 (cur. Nathalie Ergino and François Piron)
Les heures creuses
The installation called Pleines nuits structures two acoustic perspectives.
The first speaker, set at the threshold of a chicane in broad daylight, emits a voice: a man who talks about how his periods of insomnia get started. Short sentences introducing the three long and encompassing vocal sequences (humming, shouting, singing at the top of one’s voice, vague and unintelligible secular psalmodies) are emitted by four speakers set up inside the space plunged in darkness.
