How do you talk about the essential, how even do you attempt to attain it if not through simple and minimalistic motions that the artists for La Cavalerie offer. How do you give shapes and experiences presence, how do you preserve them for as long as possible from sight’s vampirism, how do you protect it from cultural disposition that eats, consumes, freezes, if not through the works that attempt to resist, of giving its all by keeping its distance, showing itself in a certain invisibility, to take on forms that do not allow complete definition or delimitation.

As with the preceding phases of Supercluster, La Cavalerie will be transformed throughout its duration according to the artists’ diverse propositions. Also, the construction and apprehension of the exhibition will be intimately entwined with the natural light and its variations, plunging at times the works into near darkness. The choice to do without the diffused light of florescent tubes, usually used in art centers, gives the objects their shadows back all while inscribing the exhibition in a temporality. In consequence, the opening and intermediate opening will take place on Saturday afternoons (instead of the usual Friday nights). The art center’s spaces will conserve the traces of the dismantling, left-overs of the walls and diverse constructions disposed in the preceding phases of Supercluster. This situation will put in to play the usual layout of the works in a space that is no longer of an empty, purified and immaculate disposition.

Opening hours (during exhibitions):

Wednesday to Sunday: 14h-18h

The CAN is open during the holidays
