Regards Croisés | The ever-changing memory


Mudam Level 0: East Gallery, West Gallery
A Curated Walk by

Francelle Cane

Within the framework of the exhibition

Dayanita Singh. Dancing with my Camera





Dancing with my Camera will be the stage for a curated walk, during which visitors will be led to discover selected pieces of Dayanita Singh’s exhibition.

With an almost obsessive interest in documenting archive rooms and accumulating this documentation, Singh’s systematic approach to collecting and archiving seems to have become a ritual. The individuals, objects and places she encounters are also all part of this ever-changing collection. Through the construction of a domestic and inhabited archive, her work becomes part of an architecture of memory that we pass through like a house, a city. This curated walk will be an opportunity to reflect on both format and display, as well as on memory and place, of archive and collections in institutions.

Francelle Cane is an architect, researcher and curator based in Luxembourg. Her research explores the subject of the ruin through the perspective of soil, thus reshaping the relations between the built environment, spatial policies and soil ecologies. For several years, her practice has involved various collaboration types and project formats, including curating and designing exhibitions as a means of research. Cane is the co-curator of the Luxembourg Pavilion at the 2023 Venice Architecture Biennale together with architect and researcher Marija Marić.
