As the first part of a triptych of exhibitions* based on the frac île-de-france collection, Interprète. brings together a selection of recently acquired works, sharing in common the idea of performance.

Whether demonstrating the double reading of one and the same Korean song (Thu Van Tran), presenting silent images from the pages of the New York Times of different performers in action (Joseph Grigely), directing the Ikebana practice towards the expression of a literary quotation (Camille Henrot), or converting an age-old Scottish site into a veritable musical instrument (Zin Taylor), it is ultimately a question of play, remake and transposition.

The other aspect uniting many of these works lies in the quintessential connection they have with music. From the musical score to the conceptual procedure (and vice versa), there is but just one step: the artists easily cross the line to offer us pieces to be experienced and re-experienced. In this spirit, Interprète. will propose a series of interventions and performances in counterpoint to the show, thus forming the basis of an orchestration in the making.
