On the floor a white limestone sand warms the feet.
– One enters the installation without shoes –
The brightness of the halogen spotlights makes you close your eyes. It is there, under the eyelids, that the projection space is created. A projection room for the imagination of immobile travellers, it is a question of perception. In contrast to the cinema, “Salle claire” is white and very bright, warm and dazzling like a sun.

What we’re listening to: “Morgane”
Each one imagines, perceives, feels and waits for the mirage to appear, the fata morgana since it is to the fairy Morgana of the Arthurian legends that these optical illusions, these magic tricks, have been attributed.
