Comme un désir d'éternité, le show
[Like a desire for eternity, the show]
Now that we call exhibition "shows", it seemed only natural to me to build my exhibition as a show. A show isn't only a series of songs accompanied on a piano, but a performance whose sophisticated arrangement is meant to provoke astonishment and emotion in the spectator.
Here, the songs have been replaced by photographs. The gallery turns into a venue as the gallery walls become the scenic space.
Far from being truthful, a show values artifice over emotion. "Comme un désir d'éternité, le show" will act the same on the spectator.
