The exhibition L’attente is an exploration of an essential aspect of time, often a source of anxiety, which occupies a central place in our lives. Many artists have attempted to probe the nature of waiting in various ways and to capture some of its fragments. A common experience, waiting also often marks the organisation or absence of work. Combining existing works, archival documents and new creations, L’attente is a conversation and a reflection on this particular aspect of time, which is both common and complex. In these artists’ examination of these questions, the exhibition recognizes not only a capacity for analysis and construction linked to the aesthetic experience, but also a potential for subversion and resistance.
