Lucile Bertrand


For “Traversées”, the artists Lucile Bertrand, Myriam Hornard and Sabrina Montiel-Soto were given carte blanche. The group show highlights the links between the CACLB and the collections of the Musée Gaumais in Virton, whose collections range from fine arts to industrial arts, customs and beliefs, ethnography and anthropology.

Lucile Bertrand works with the generous desire to reveal some of the museum’s gems through traces of their absence. Her hollowed-out moulds, like the objects, arranged or shaped, are poetic and semantic propositions that speak of emotion, of what remains when everything has disappeared. With the intention of helping us cross the boundaries of time and space, Lucile Bertrand installs strips of openwork linen, unfurled, which represent the three borders and bear witness to their porosity, their movement. The visitor crosses them as fraudsters used to cross borders, under the nose of customs officers.
