This project is part of the 10th edition of Hors Pistes / Centre Pompidou 2015, with the support of Red Bull Studios and the participation of DICRéAM
The FOMO exhibition concentrates on three cliché diachronic and meteorological stakes that are characteristic of the contemplation of a re-erected landscape. Sequenced on three floors of the Tour-Panorama (alternately dawn, midday, and twilight), the show is also built around the participation of the visitors, who are invited to seize new epistolary forms.
“FOMO” is at the heart of the 2015 Spring Festival of Contemporary Art in Marseille which takes as a starting point the invention of photographic postcard by the entrepreneur Dominique Piazza in this city in 1891.
Already in the air and the spirit of the time, the postcard enabled a worldwide spread of fleeting moments, tender thoughts, and more or less remarkable sites. The inventor had been inspired by his exchanges with a friend of his who had emigrated to Argentina. This democratic tool allowed for travel accounts and correspondence, like a distant ancestor of our innumerable data exchanges today.
“The message is the medium”. This widespread statement is as relevant to the postcard as it is in the case of the images and information exchanged on Internet reducing evermore the long voyage that separates now and then.
