Laurent Mulot creates a new work from a long-term experience named Middle of Nowhere. This artistic experience is similar to a "generic work " which began in 2001 in Cook, Australia and has continued, since then, by joining together all the creations of the artist as so many episodes which punctuate his inexhaustible search for the invisible.
This exhibition, Phantoms of Liberty, is the narrative of Middle of Nowhere. This narrative is broken into five plan-sequences which follow one another on a linear route where the "uncertainties" of art and those of science dialogue. The first act is the meeting of six couples across the globe. They are the caretakers of the founding gesture of Middle of Nowhere : Six Ghost Contemporary Arts Centers.
The "final" act, after a picture of the roadsign “B31” which opens all the possible, is a Horizon of meetings, a frieze of the names of those whom the artist come across on his way and which become actors of the work.
Claire Truche's "voice-over ", resounds on this route with the “Conte du milieu de nulle part”, a way of reminding us of the fictional nature of this reality or the opposite. A story where reality such as we perceive it runs alongside with the neutrino, "boson of Higgs" and other numerous presences which the artist discovers in his dialogue with scientists. So it is, for Augenblick created during a residence on the CERN territory (European Organization for Nuclear Research), for Thinkrotron, which was born during a residence in Grenoble at the Center for scientific, technical and industrial knowledge in partnership with the European Synchrotron and for Aganta-Kairos, conceived from the ANTARES experiment (monitoring observatory of neutrinos located at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, off the Island of Porquerolles).
All we have to do is to give up any certainty to enter this narrative of ghosts and freedom.
