The words of Christine Bouilloc on the opposite page reflect the same surprise felt by the exhibition curators when they unexpectedly discovered these multicolored rugs in a monochromatic desert. The exhibition design is loosely inspired by this emotional aspect. As one tours the exhibition, one should experience a contrast of meanings, whose differences have been emphasized. This approach, at once disturbing and startling, is meant to transport the visitor to an emotionally charged vortex where, at times, visual points of reference have been lost. As beliefs are suspended, we enter a mysterious realm of discovery that animates us all.
The exhibition was designed as an immersive voyage, offering the visitor a rich sensory experience. One by one, we discover a sequence of rug-paintings, whose abstract patterns evoke a symphony of colors.
