Made in Town

Through gestures and savoir-faire we witness the realization of Touchez-voir, a project destined for those who in fact do not see. From the museum archives to the atelier, we observe the birth of an original wardrobe and forms that will soon be joined together in a trunk available to experience at the Palais Galliera.

Interactions between the artist and artisans, based on an idea of Marc Pottier.

The prototype of this trunk will be elaborated at Made in Town composed with original pieces, a choice of clothes and accessories “reinvented” from those of the museum collection.

The installation is accompanied by the Livre-à-porter printed in both Braille and ink. This publication is conceived in collaboration with graphic designer Antje Welde and realized with the association Le Livre de l’Aveugle.

The questions posed about notions of making and transmission are numerous. We can consider continuity within the larger body of the artist’s work as well, across the common threads of exchange and textiles.
