THIS EVENING THE NIGHT DOESN’T WANT TO END
DOMAINE DE CHAUMONT-SUR-LOIRE . FRANCE
Curator : Chantal Colleu-Dumond
At Chaumont-sur-Loire, Joël Andrianomearisoa employs a variety of materials from silk paper to textiles and plays on subtleties of light to tell a stunningly poetic tale.
A voyage translated from the night
materials of light and absence
the immaterial nature of the invisible world
black light to the green of life
the first day, the last night
the infinite horizon
the geometry of the angle that brings tears

Continuing the voyage begun with the piece I HAVE FORGOTTEN THE NIGHT, produced and presented at the first Madagascar Pavilion at the 2019 Venice Biennale, Joël Andrianomearisoa now brings his work to the Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire.
The message of the night is not limited to the piece alone, but involves a total deployment of the cycle of night until day and its eternal repetition.
Five new productions punctuate each chapter of the account. The proposition is divided into 5 stages that translate the intangibility of this invisible world. A journey through the dark night of oblivion to the full daylight of life. Melancholy sets the rhythm, paper the expression and textiles the respiration.
