#8 L’Ombre du fou rire
Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012 at 8:30 p.m., with the participation of the artist.
Nights are days viewed from behind; uncertainty is the mechanism of the unknown. The first Night of Uncertainty was held during the Mathematics exhibition, an abrupt disorientation that was held in February 2011. Since then, the night’s mysteries, at the heart of the Fondation Cartier, have tried to align with the uncertainties of existence, time, and tempos.
The first uncertainty is space-time: garden, first floor or basement, spring, summer, autumn or winter?
The second uncertainty is a trinity: the knower, the known and the knowledge. Who is the subject, who is the object?
The third uncertainty is that of conjecture. The Nights of Uncertainty have invited scientists, philosophers, artists and anthropologists to an evening led by Stéphane Paoli with Michel Cassé.
The Nights weave a magic carpet that follows the winds and currents, taking the spectator to a place of discoveries and questions.
