I call to the creatures of the deep • 2022

CGI Video, 04'23'' - commissioned for Uncanny Depths at MAMO, Marseille Modulor

I call to the creatures of the deep.

Who dwell in the darkness beneath the waves.

 

In this blurred and eerie underwater world,

We float through the water in a baroque palace.

Come forth, creatures of the deep,

show us the secrets below the murky sea.

‘"'Uncanny Depths' offers a historical walk and a reflection on the long term, around the notion of the value of antiquity theorized by Alois Riegl. Taking place in the MAMO, the former gymnasium of Le Corbusier's Cité Radieuse, conceived as an inverted ship's hull, the exhibition takes the form of a baroque, undulating and archaeological fantasy, a resurgence of the myth of Atlantis and of the most mysterious and disturbing incarnations of the forces of time."

Emmanuelle Luciani, curator of Uncanny Depths, MAMO, Marseille Modulor.
