9th March – 26th September 2018 This new hanging of works from Rochechouart's permanent collection is an open invitation to explore night-time from the first pricking of stars at dusk to the dawn of a new day. The title, Because the Night comes from American singer Patti Smith's 1978 song which dwells on visions torn between nocturnal dreams and desires.
Rochechouart Museum of Contemporary Art is proud to present this Spring the first solo exhibition of works in a French museum by Mira Sanders (b. 1973), a Belgian artist known for her interest in maps, territories or environments as well as in architecture. George Perec's writings greatly influence her approach which she refers to as a “journal for a user of space”.
