The echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand

This exhibition’s title pays homage to Echoes, the captivating and unfathomable song by Pink Floyd. These two lines from the song’s first verse are like the national anthem of an imaginary country which is plagued by strange phenomena.

Conjuring up a quasi-extraterrestrial exploration of the ruins of Pompeii and providing a range of heterogeneous musical experiences (which are extracts from various recording sessions), “Echoes” also makes us think of the eponymous Echo, the mountain nymph of Greek mythology. Residing on Mount Cithaeron in Boeotia, she was cursed with a voice which could only repeat the last words she heard, thereby giving the acoustic phenomenon
its name.

As part of this first exhibition in Aubervilliers, the artists subtly occupy the space, flirting with the abstraction of REM sleep and reverberating under the dome to echo the murmurs, glances and movements of the exhibition’s first visitors, all while emphasizing the architectural lines of this incredible industrial site in the north of Paris. The walls have ears; with their sharpened senses, the artists pick up on these fragmentary phenomena, relaying them to the public. The artists here have always had a sixth sense for the world around them; this exhibition is an opportunity for us to hear what they have to say.
