Kadist Art Foundation is pleased to present The Sirens’ Stage/Le Stade des Sirènes/Lo stato delle sirene, an exhibition by Etienne Chambaud in the framework of Vincent Normand’s project Permanent Exhibition, Temporary Collections.


The Sirens’ Stage/Le Stade des Sirènes/Lo stato delle sirene is developed by Kadist Art Foundation in Paris, the David Roberts Art Foundation in London and Nomas Foundation in Rome. The exhibition, interpreted in a different language almost simultaneously at each foundation, is based on mechanisms of writing and transcription. Translation should be considered both the medium and the shared language of the whole project.


The project takes its title from the mythological sirens’ song, which invents itself in the ear of its addressee. Here The Sirens’ Stage/Le Stade des Sirènes/Lo stato delle sirene, is conceived as a group of « written objects »: absent but described, motionless but translated, unique but repeated, mute but transcribed.
