Yann Chateigné Tytelman - Blackout
A very personal text by Yann Chateigné Tytelman, curator and critic, who establishes a link between his past, his childhood and his career as a curator, his artistic choices, his exhibitions, often in connection with the theme of silence.
"It all started with a letter to my father. It had been about ten years since his death, and I suddenly felt like writing to him about the silence, his silence, the silence between us. It started in 2020, as a necessity. The silence, then, was striking. It resonated with other erased voices, other voids, other emotions. I thought I would not be able to stop. Neither diary, nor essay, nor short story, Blackout is a weaving, a braid made of these lines of silence, and tells, in fragments, the story of a dispossession, of an entry into darkness."
