Exhibitions by Anne Le Troter are designed to be spaces where language is projected; appearing as investigations into the contemporary world through the meticulous examination of the speech that it produces.

The artist infiltrates professional environments and gathers together different spoken materials, looking for the ways that an individual and their singularity can, in the crucible of language, express themselves without being appropriated or absorbed by today's data society.

The vast installation that Anne Le Troter has made for Le Grand Café is made up of a single sound work that permeates the entire building, creating a dialogue from the sound archive of a cryobank, its interpretation, and its translation.

Parler de loin ou bien se taire [At distance speak, or hold your tongue] explores the circulation between liberation and alienation, and traces the poetic and the political in the personal.

The exhibition follows on from Théâtre chez l'habitant / théâtre d'habitation [Theatre in the home / theatre of habitation] a series of performances that she created in collaboration with Charlotte Khouri in Saint-Nazaire last July.


With The Neighbours F's: Fun and Fame, a work created by Anne Le Troter and Charlotte Khouri.

This exhibition is the artist's first solo exhibition of this scale. It is aligned with its recent projects presented:

-at the exhibition of the 20th Fondation d'entreprise Ricard Prize in 2018, for which Anne Le Troter was nominated
-during the 6th edition of Les Ateliers de Rennes - Contemporary Art Biennale: À cris ouverts in 2018
