Abstract (English)

"When the Guests Are Not Looking is an extended project consisting of a publication and a series of performances centered on the title character of Denis Diderot’s dialogue Rameau’s Nephew (1762-1777). In the character of the nephew, Diderot presents a hero of indiscipline, a buffoon and an idler, a subject who operates in the margins of the Enlightenment, a period that is at the root of our contemporary obsession with work and productivity. For the project, a performer will rehearse ephemeral and often invisible actions in and around exhibition spaces outside of the galleries’ opening hours. The actions will be primarily accessible through a publication distributed in the exhibition spaces, which include drawings as well as written descriptions of the actions conducted as part of the project." -- Artist's website.
