Episode 1: The Wild and the Captive
Every artist bears within him a private history of art.
The artists peopling Alain Michard’s history are largely unyielding, marginal and untameable.
This artist and self-proclaimed historian addresses his audience with his hands in his pockets. No notes, no papers. This is exclusively about narrative and the power of narrative.
The choice of artists for each lecture is kept secret, with no attempt at aesthetic or historical consistency. The opposite in fact: the most ’mismatched’ will perhaps be the best suited.
The Carp and the Rabbit is a series of lecture-performances scheduled for different venues in Rennes – Phakt, Colombier Cultural Centre and Frac Bretagne – throughout the season.
