Room 4 is a space dedicated to sound performance, experimentation and diffusion. This environment, designed by artist and designer Lucas Uhlmann, offers a setting for a profound hearing experience. In the enfilade of a bar, where the audience meets leaning on the counter, a hallway leads to a room with curved padded lines in which stools are scattered, ready to welcome listeners. The notion of time is very quickly altered and gradually adjusts to the rhythm of the sounds filling the space. Everything here points to exceptional moments. The performers stand on the same level as the audience and offer them an intimate, sometimes gentle, sometimes brutal one-on-one experience ; moments of communion of which only the rumour of a place that would have existed will remain. About twenty performances, developing over eight events between 22 November and 14 December, will make up the contrasting programme of Room 4.

Parce qu’il interroge à plusieurs titres le statut, la nature et même l’unicité de l’artiste, ainsi que les cadres institutionnels ou marchands déterminant la valeur et la pérennité d’une œuvre artistique, Ludovic Chemarin© est invité à devenir une figure importante de la nouvelle saison artistique des Tanneries intitulée Figure[s], en déployant sur une saison entière de nouveaux dispositifs créatifs pour accompagner les temps forts de la programmation.
