Le passé est un pays étranger + Le test de la chaise

This exhibition explores the intersection between contemporary art, temporal relations and paranormal research. In Le passé est un pays étranger, Latour presents two dimensional and three dimensional work to see how the « past » is mediated through texts, images and vintage objects. Le test de la chaise invites viewers to test their own precognitive abilities through an interactive installation based on a paranormal exam from the twentieth-century.
