Each of us is limited by the space in which we live. Its shapes, brought into being by walls, houses, buildings, streets, cities, and suburbs, order our movements and situate us in a precise setting. Space is thus made up of divisions, whether tangible or virtual, which also create boundaries between indoors and outdoors, public and private, and the urban and nature. Now, most often these divisions have become invisible to our sight: we no longer know how to look at the space they create, Georges Perec insisted in a book that has since become famous and from which this exhibition has borrowed its eloquent title. In fact, only rarely do we glimpse its lines of demarcation, meeting points, dimensions or manifold itineraries. The task of exposing space, of bringing it to light – the task, put another way, of analysing the visibility of the material objects around us – is the common thread running through this exhibition.
