MARIE-LAURENCE BLOUIN: MARCEL, A LAST GHOST

Installation

September 5 – October 19, 2019

Opening Thursday September 5, 5:00pm

Project Description

You do not speak. You are caught in your silence, I don’t know exactly why. In my head there is your presence, and your absence, the smell of granny’s macaroni soup. There is too much carpet. I’m not sure there has never been a carpet, but what I’m sure of is that in my memory, in the box that bears your name, there is carpet, and silence, and a phone that rings and no one answers.
