Press release

In order to put into perspective the musical character at the heart of Christian Marclay's creative process, we decided to present Ephemera in correlation with the work of Saâdane Afif: Lyrics.

We will present for this exhibition Lyrics written by Tacita Dean, André Magnin, Jonathan Monk, Emilie Pitoiset, Michael Riedel, Anri Sala and Sarah Ancelle Schönefeld, performed by musicians or singers with three concerts organised during the exhibition.

Marclay's and Afif's works have in common to not be confined to a single object or a single form, giving way to an orality and a musicality that they can evoke or to which they are destined.

Ephemera and Lyrics explore the interpretation arising from encounters with a work, recalling Marcel Duchamp's quote: "it is the viewer who does the work".

While Lyrics is a work resulting from requests to different authors, this new exhibition presents it in a new dimension: it becomes material and pretext for a new interpretation of Ephemera.
