February 28th, 2010

CHRONIQUES D’UN VIDE / the white box, by Nathalie KERSCHEN

A wooden box (1 x 1 x 1 m), completely insulated on the inside of a 10 cm layer of mineral fibre and fitted with a broadcasting system to record the voids, has been on the road and is now arriving at LESLIE’S ARTGALLERY.

LESLIE’S ARTGALLERY has the pleasure to invite you to the opening reception of the conceptual art project by Nathalie Kerschen at the gallery in Bridel on Wednesday 3rd march 2010 at 7 p.m.

The artist will be present at the opening reception.

This conceptual art project will be exhibited at the gallery from 3rd to 28th march, 2010.

We look forward to seeing you in the gallery,

Leslie Barnig

Il était une fois un vide ...

Il était une fois un vide ...


While the white box has been sent from Ottawa to the Casino Luxembourg – Forum for Contemporary Art – from January 11 to February 5, 2010, it recorded its journey through the voids. Once the box arrived, a limited number of selected recordings has been transferred to analogue tapes corresponding each to a particular Voidzone that the box crossed. Visitors can now take part in the journey by purchasing a sequence of its first move.

The project distinguishes two types of Voidzones.

THE TAPEBOX is a unique piece – limited to the number of 12 for the journey Ottawa – Luxembourg – and corresponds to a personal field of projection offering 60 minutes of recordings. The wooden box (22 x 22 x 10 cm) includes an analogue tape plus a digital version (CD) of the recorded sequences. Each Tapebox is sold for 300 EUR TTC at the gallery.



THE VOIDBAG is the classical model presented as a common sample of the journey (limited to the number of 50 pieces). It amounts to 10 minutes of recordings, plus digital codes to download the sample online. Each voidbag is sold  for 50 EUR TTC at the gallery.
