The Institut d'art contemporain is thrilled to invite Saâdane Afif for a large monographic show : Blue Time, Blue Time, Blue Time… Playing on the repetition at the onset of the exhibition’s title, the artist invites visitors to follow, from one space to another “variations on the same piece,” started in 2004. Blue Time, rhythmically runs through the show both as work and as a text, like a chorus or leitmotif. The IAC becomes, for the duration of the exhibition, a vantage point for an artistic process that unfolded over ten years, with incessant mutations.
