Constance Guisset Three Conversations

In the Palais de Tokyo’s forest of columns, a long, high, narrow passage can be made out, like a water course separated by two cliffs. It is the Trois Conversations space. Talk, look together, kiss: in three stopover points amid the flow of the public. Three light skiffs with colourful, festive coverings. Moored here, or there, they offer journeys with another, and spaces for daydreaming. Above these comfortable surfaces, masts have been erected, holding up a mesh of woven lines and circles. Conical forms rise like yacht sails and then metamorphose into a graphic semi-transparency.

Conceived as a convivial place, one of the Three Conversations is a settle equipped with a projection screen. Palais de Tokyo has invited Jacques Lizène (born in 1946, lives and works in Liège) to show some of his video pieces there:o :
