The dangerous freedom given to artists to create.

For our fourth edition, the PRESQUE RIEN Association offered artists to create a work with Luc Ferrari’s sound archives – or to use them in their project. These sound files were collected during the digitization of Luc Ferrari’s magnetic archives, chosen and made available to creators of all artistic disciplines.
