Event, seven handwritten letters
L'Écrivain Public includes a public event, the protocol of past presentations and the rights to reenact the work in the future with a writer of choice. For each enactment a writer is chosen to record his or her observation.
The work was first performed in 1995 during the artist's solo exhibition at FRAC Montpellier. Huyghe asked a writer to record everything she could observe, hear or see within a specified period of time during the opening of his exhibition. During the performance her writing was immediately made public and put on display.
