Evidence means the available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid.
Evidence is an audiovisual montage that crosses the work of Arthur Rimbaud, Antonin Artaud and René Daumal in their journeys to new horizons.
Stimulated by these metaphysical journeys, the music and sound composition of Perfect Vision is the starting point for this new multidisciplinary exhibition, collectively designed by Soundwalk Collective and Patti Smith for the Centre Pompidou.
Have you ever visited the Centre Pompidou?
According to this video, tourists don’t know about it …
Undoubtedly a nice way to promote yourself, anyway I guess if I agree.
I’ve been there every time I’ve been lucky enough to visit Paris, and I find it hard to believe that tourists ignore it.
Of course the gimmick of the QR code embedded is rather ingenious, or is it?
Especially when I think that we visited Paris following complimentary hotel maps with all the Metro lines … yes, it was just that couple of years and technological eras ago … 🙂
Incidentally, “chatting” through the comments with Olivia, I was just remembering our attempts to ask for coffee by repeating serré over and over again in the vain hope of drinking it as short as possible …
Also pictured is Patti Smith, portrayed by Annie Leibovitz, having coffee at Café de Flore, in Paris.
Patti said in an interview that Evidence is about travel.
Smiling, I think of the Pompidou Center’s gadgets: inspired by the classic souvenirs commonly considered as a “proof” of travel to be carried as a souvenir to display at home, or as a thought for friends and acquaintances.
So what is the proof, that is, the gadget you purchased during one of your trips that you particularly cherish?
