« Le rêve est une hypothèse puisque nous ne le connaissons jamais que par le souvenir, mais ce souvenir est nécessairement une fabrication. »
Paul Valéry (Variété, 1924-44)
Originally, a notebook that accumulates the transcription of works of art seen in dreams and their supposed referents in the real world. This notebook becomes the support of a retrospective exhibition that borrows from reality and fantasy without hierarchy. The dreams are reconstructed in a modular setting, inhabited by extras and recorded by overhanging cameras. In the exhibition, the recordings are broadcasted in front of a second space below. The re- used decorative elements surround original and referencial art works from private and public collections. At times, the footsteps and murmurs of the extras resonate among those of the visitors.
