The exponential development of technology is paradoxically a time there is a surge in attention and demand for magical, unexplained and mythological phenomena.
La Gaîté lyrique - first a theatre, then a reference for operetta, a theme park, an abandoned building hosting secret rave parties - is now a digital culture space filled with stories and memories.
Haunted mirrors, invisible surveillance, living houses, occult cyborgs, spectral machines, intangible waves and virtual existence: la Gaîté lyrique’s new exhibition presents a selection of contemporary artworks about a variety of ghostly figures: the real, the fake and the uncertain.
Brush, touch, interact... And let yourself be surprised!
Metamorphy by Scenoscome Spectres by Malte Martin
Conceived as an entirely immersive journey, Extra Fantômes ’ scenography offers a playful, strange and poetic exploration.
Built in 4 sections - the Darkness, the Red Room, the Control Room and the Bunker - the visitor dives in a circuit of secret passages, phantasmagorical universes, uncertain visions.
• The exhibition will be adapted and presented at the Centre Phi – Montreal in early 2017.
