Reinstallation of piece “Sunbath”.

I always work in series. I think it is the best way to explore a subject in depth. In this series of works I have used the figure of the tourist as a symbol of transience, strangeness and uncanniness, in a strict Freudian sense.
When I was invited to intervene in the Domaine Pommery cellars, I remember, first of all, feeling a strong impression because of the characteristics of the space, the darkness, the coldness, its labyrinth structure… and because it is really quite deep. I told myself: this place has never seen the light of the sun.
When intervening in a space, one has two options: to work with the space as an ally or to fight it as an enemy. I usually have a clear understanding of the difference between the two approaches, but in this case I still haven’t been able to figure out whether it is one or the other.
The installation recreates a beach in broad daylight where a character (my father) is lying under a beach umbrella, listening to music from a radio-cassette player. When the viewer enters the space he finds himself before something completely out of context, a man sunbathing indoors —in a cellar which is excavated deep in the earth. I hope this gives rise to a series of questions and uncertainties about the interplay between “artistic” and “natural” objects, i.e., the sculptural reproduction of my father in relation to the rest of the elements in the installation, as well as the dichotomy of the contrast between inside and outside.
