After the exhibition Divagations amoureuses inspired by Roland Barthes’ book Fragments d’un discours amoureux, Madeleine Filippi proposes a second section Les Heures grises (Grey Hours) of reflections on the paradigm of solitude in love at Ségolène Brossette Galerie.
This text by Roland Barthes, which aims to give voice to the lover, succeeds in the tour de force of touching the universal, because it speaks of the human experience. We all recognize ourselves in the lover. It echoes this individual who, as the author says, « speaks within himself, lovingly, in front of the other », in front of the loved one, who does not express himself, a sign that the discourse of love is ultimately always one of extreme solitude.
The exhibition Grey Hours questions the paradigm of boredom in the couple. Usually perceived as a trying moment of intense and morbid monotony.
It is also a time of latency conducive to fantasies where desire lurks in the shadows and questions lack.
