Autour de moi il n’y a que de la roche, elle est plus lourde que nous

Garance Grand-Leger

Presented by Le FRAC

Garance Grand-Leger is a multidisciplinary artist, who through performance, text, installation, design, and photography, invites viewers to look outside the box. The artist tells, thinks, sees, and composes from our ways and places of life, a story of bodies, ailments and traces—collective, individual, invisible, and powerful. Autour de moi il n’y a que de la roche, elle est plus lourde que nous is a performance where the artist takes the visitor on a discovery of the famous Chauvet Cave. This exceptional experience, lived by the artist, is reactivated here for the public, guided by the sound of her voice and immersed in her imagination. From this personal memory, the artist designs an anthropological journey where, motionless and eyes closed, we enter the interior of the cave, where it is soft and dark. Garance Grand-Leger offers an experience of time and space that propels the public out of their reality to better reconnect to their history, and to the first images and traces of humanity.
