ce qu’il reste des échos – exhibition
Which are the cities, the places, that remain unforgotten? Those, through which we walked with open eyes, attentively watching everything? Or, instead, perhaps those in which our thoughts were elsewhere, everywhere else and we were looking into nowhere, seeing nothing. But our body, without us, noticing it at the time, perceived its surroundings through the skin, through the ears.
Clarice Calvo-Pinsolle is an artist, that does not visualize a city, does not form an image of a city. The eye is not the decisive instrument of perception. It’s not about looking but listening. No photos are taken, no camera is used, but a recording device. A particular procedure. How does she remember the places she has been? By listening again to the sounds she heard back then. An imageless remembering – Remembering, without resemblance.
