Dominique Blais - Pascal Broccolichi
Angela Detanico & Rafael Lain - Rolf Julius

Landscape, map, territory, topography, pathways … In a text entitled Frontières et pensée interprétative [Frontiers and Interpretive Thought], Christophe Kihm underlines the extent to which spatial references are often called upon to describe certain contemporary visual forms (readymade, minimal art, land art, the site-specific) that “reflect” space and use it to question the conditions of their own definition as much as those of their exhibition. A fortiori, he continues, this vocabulary adapts itself particularly well to sound forms that are concerned with the diffusion and the spatialization of sound. From the “furniture music” of Erik Satie and the “ambient music” of Brian Eno, by way of musique concrete and sound design, the spatial dimension has become an essential composant of sound.

The group exhibition GSM “Geo Sound Map” replays this geographical and cartographical inscription as the principle of a generic approach: organic works (Rolf Julius, Dominique Blais) manifesting a quasi-geological presence, technological installations generating landscapes (Detanico & Lain, Dominique Blais), matiérist drawings and lexical spatializations of sound phenomena (Dominique Blais, Rolf Julius, Pascal Broccolichi) … A number of specific approaches towards the medium of SOUND posing questions of displacement and transcription, encoding and poetry, deviations and territorial mutations.
