Christophe Huysman Christophe Huysman / Constellations


This sound installation, performed in the Saint-Eustache Church, is the product of a commission Huysman received from the parish’s former priest. Huysman met eight mothers of children with AIDS under a program that encourages artists to create works of ‘public utility’ on behalf of ordinary people with problems. Les Constellations shares the mothers’ confidences in three movements: whispers, the song “with the wrung neck” and the speaking walls.
