Dear Shaded Viewers,

The current exhibition at Palais de Tokyo DOUBLE JE ARTISANS D’ART ET ARTISTES is about the investigation of a crime scene based on a novel by Franck Thilliez. "I've committed a murder." The right hand is still covered with dried blood that the artisan of art Ganel Todanais brings to the police. It is 8h47 and his hands are trembling as he confides in a young officer and produces a steel dagger with a handle like the vertebrae of a snake. The end of the blade shows traces of injury to the rival, the famous Galois. A patrol is then dispatched to the victims house but no body was found.

The exhibition plunges into the daily life of an artist and the intimacy of their work while approaching it as a crime scene.Each object in the 'crime scene' is presented as a work of art for the visitor to consult and reconstruct the crime scene in order to solve it. The objects are a collaboration between the artists and the artisans..

The exhibition was made possible in partnership with  Fondation Bettencourt Schueller
