The summoning of a bygone world, the intimate dialogue with witnesses of the past and the magical thought with which it invests what seems inert, draw an ode sensitive to the memory and the rustling of what is no longer: our origins.
Designed as a journey, this exhibition in Nice unfolds from the Prehistory museum of Terra Amata, epicenter of the activity of these first men, to MAMAC, passing by the hill of the castle where, in 2013, a burial place populated by funeral remains dating from the 12th and 13th centuries.
This journey through the centuries revolves around the idea of an Original Noise, an expression borrowed from the poet Rainer Maria Rilke. After he has discovered with wonder the potential of the first phonographs, he dreams of "an incredible thing": "to put into sound the innumerable signatures of creation which last in the skeleton, in the stone, (...), the crack in wood, the approach of an insect ", and hear the memory of a disappeared being by crossing the furrows of the skull with the device ... Between romantic thought and demiurgic fantasy, this aspiration of Rilke to re-animate absence, is a common thread of Charlotte Pringuey-Cessac's proposal.
