Spectacles Without Objects, Louise Hervé and Chloé Maillet


Spectacles Without Objects explores — through film, images, objects and performances, specific occurrences of utopian performances in the past, way before the XXth century, before the moment Modern Art History usually assigns to the beginnings of performance art. Archeology of performance is a contemporary issue, especially as it took place inside communities who yearned to change social structures and relationships, to change human beings.

Spectacles Without Objects deals with historical reconstruction, both as a personal practice (the artists regularly work with people and associations reenacting historical events) and as an institutional practice, in museums.

Louise Hervé and Chloé Maillet use film, text, objects, to conjure up ideas. But the real reconstruction doesn’t take place in those images or objects or performances, it takes place at the intersection of all these elements, by trangulation. The real reconstruction is happening somewhere else: it’s happening inside the spectator’s mind.
