This exhibition of Isabelle and Jean-Conrad Lemaître’s collection - committed members of the LOOP fair comity - is in a sense, a way of talking about LOOP’s soul. Based on this idea, Nathalie Viot, curator of the exhibition and advisor for the collection since 2001, went through 106 video pieces and chose distinctly introspective works. In the selected pieces the dialogues, images, sounds and illuminations contain great emotion. These videos talk of childhood, ecology, restlessness of being part of this world and also of our disappearance.
