Le Sarcophage de L. près de M. (en D.) – Galerie de Roussan
Stéfane Perraud’s solo exhibition Le Sarcophage de L. près de M. (en D.) invites the viewers to follow the artist within an introspective fiction as they enter a mysterious space, in which sculptural clues and signs altogether call for interpretation through a play of lights. The fiction takes on a form that is both contemporary and timeless. While they are presented as if they were just exhumed from a crypt, the reality of which remains uncertain, figures and techniques appear like frozen during the brief instant preceding the revelation of the enigmas. They are the fruits of different ages colliding, whereas the imperishable fire of the radioactive material uncovered by their excavation symbolises the memory forever subsisting outside bodies and beyond space.
