Lorette et Monsieur K sur fond bleu

Lorette et Monsieur K sur fond bleu

PERFORMANCE IN THE MUSEUM OF BEAUBOURG AND THE MUSEE D’IXELLES
With 10 actors from INSAS and a few geese

Blending in with the general public, fifteen INSAS students propose a surprising and playful tour in the guise of a family of visitors who are pretty much like everyone else, except that they answer to the names of Minos, Pasiphaë, Ariadne, Minotaur and Daedalus. They are a strange and slightly crazy mythological family who, under the watchful eye of a number of artificial geese, make their way through the rooms, encountering museum attendants for the day, an eccentric tour guide and a road sweeper who just happens to be an expert in conceptual art… Attracted by the works in the collections, the family members are always quick to comment extensively on a particular detail, an element of composition or a choice of colour. They also take the opportunity to settle some scores and confide their secrets to the public. Reactions are entwined with learned or intimate questioning, provoking an occasional re-examination of the major discourses in art history.
