Production Details / Press Releases
We think about tomorrow while making coffee, make imaginary travels while walking down the streets. Meanwhile the things are just there, shrouded in an enigmatic silence. We interpret and associate, give things a meaning, but they don’t say anything. In Title Clément Layes exposes the parallel actions of thinking and doing. With typical humor, Layes explores the complex interrelation and discrepancies between the assemblage of things and the web of associations we build around them and stages the war and the peace between them. Doing so he exposes both the shatter of the thought and the spectacular silence of the object.
